5 Things for a Perfect Evening

5 Things for a Perfect Evening

I'm a downright grandma when it comes to bedtimes. I'm more than happy to hop into bed around 9:30 and be snoozing by 10. There are a few things I like to do in the evening to set myself up for the perfect night's sleep free of worry and stress.

  1. Spending some time with my planner to figure out exactly what's happening the next day and the rest of the week. This really helps put my mind at ease. I can write in any events that have come up and make sure I know exactly what's happening at work the next morning. No surprises!
  2. Writing out to do lists the night before makes falling asleep a snap. I write out anything and everything I have to do the next day (and usually the few days following) so that when it's time for bed there is nothing lingering in my head to make me stress over while I'm trying to sleep.
  3. Watching an episode of Daredevil to relax for a minute. My life is pretty crazy most days so being able to turn off and turn on a good episode of whatever show we're watching makes my night so perfect. Daredevil is my go to show at the moment, but we're just about done with the season on Netflix.
  4. Talking with my boyfriend Alex. We're both going a hundred miles a minute during the day so I always really enjoy snuggling up in bed a few minutes earlier just to chat with him about what we got up to that day and our plans for tomorrow. 
  5. Avoiding technology the last thirty or so minutes before bed really helps me to disengage from my day job and evening job. I'm on social media for a living, so stepping away from it before bed makes it that much easier to shut off my brain and get a good night's sleep.
There are a few others I would throw into the mix (take a bath, do a long skincare routine) but these are my favorites for a simple, yet perfect evening. What are some of the ways you have a perfect evening?
