My Best Nighttime Routine | 7 steps to snooze

A nighttime routine helps my brain and body prepare for sleep.

There are a select few people who might be able to sleep on demand, but this is not me when my adrenaline is revved up from watching the latest police drama.

When I Googled ‘perfect bedtime routine” I just saw mummy bloggers sharing bedtime routines for babies and children.

It dawned on me. I have taken so much time and effort creating the perfect bedtime routine for my baby, but I quickly forgot everything when it came to myself!

So I decided, I am going to treat myself like a child for the perfect bed time routine.

I am going to go as far as setting a bedtime!

Here is my plan for a nighttime routine to help me sleep faster and better.

My sample nighttime routine to help get to sleep faster and have a better snooze

1. Have a warm bath – few hours before

Ideally,  I will be having a bath a few hours before I go to bed.

During sleep your core body temperature drops, which according to research increases your chances of falling asleep and enjoying a deeper sleep.

One way to trigger this drop in core body temperature is to raise it, which you can do easily in a warm bath.

2. Moisturise

I will practice self-care and moisturise. Heaven knows my skin will thank me for it!

I find that by moisturising before bed it helps my skin to glow the next day, it is also a relaxing way to begin my wind down.

Recently I started to wear a 100% silk sleep mask to prevent my moisturiser from being soaked up by fabric rather than my skin.

3. Turn the lights low

I’ll be setting those lights to 10% please, Alexa! I find bright or direct light before bed can mess with my sleep cycle.

4. Eat a snack

I have noticed that if I don’t eat enough dinner then a drop in blood sugar in the night can be a cause of a nighttime waking. To get over waking in the night peckish I have a snack such as porridge, bananas, yoghurt, peanut butter sandwich or a bowl of cereal.

I always avoid food that is high in sugar or contains caffeine in my nighttime routine!

5. Have a warm drink

Before I go to bed I enjoy a chamomile tea which I know has been long used as a natural sleep aid.

I love to add a dose of Pretty Peaceful after a busy day.

I absolutely hate milk, but I know a warm glass of milk is also good pre bedtime. But I think it would make me gag too much!

I’ll be sticking to the CBD chamomile tea!

6. Read a book

Read a book, but not in bed.

There is a thought that your bed should be for sleep and sex only.

If I read in bed I don’t do much winding down, I just fall asleep with it on my face!

7. Lights out

Time to turn out the lights or blow the candles, which I do at around the same time each night. This helps my body get into a rhythm of when sleep happens. I do this every night, even on the weekends!
