The bedtime routine is one of the most sacred routines any person can keep. The way you take care of yourself affects not only your physical appearance but your mental and emotional wellbeing as well. Taking the time to create a bedtime routine can shift the entire way you live. In order to keep your bedtime routine sacred, you must unwind all 5 of your senses.
Sound – Turn on a relaxing playlist, podcast, or guided meditation. It is a great way to set the ambiance as you unwind from the busy and sometimes stressful day. It’s also a great way to block out any unwanted noise such as noisy neighbors, street noise, and anything else that may go bump in the night.
Sight – Turn off any harsh lighting, and reduce your screen time as much as possible 30 minutes before bed. A great substitution for your phone is reading a book, painting, drawing, journaling, or tidying up any clutter in plain sight that can cause any feeling of anxiety or chaos.
Smell – Light a candle, burn some incense, turn on an oil diffuser, and let whatever your preferred scent wash over you. Whether you’re guided into a field of cotton, cashmere, lavender, or whatever scent you prefer, you’ll instantly feel your muscles and mind relax.
Touch – Wash off the day with your skincare routine and slip into something comfortable. Whether that’s your pyjamas, your bed, or even slipping back into your body with a light stretch before bed.
Taste – Wash away the last remains of your dinner, dessert, and/or late-night snack with the Nudge Oral Care Box. It’s equipped with every step you need for a minty fresh taste before bed.
