People typically prefer to follow a day time routine and neglect an evening ritual because mornings are the beginning of the day and are considered to be more scheduled and structured. We ignore the fact that dawns when combined with a planned dusk, can provide us ample time to rest and unwind from the stress of the entire day.

Here is a list of some amazing habits that can be developed if you intend to use both of your busy mornings and lazy evenings.  

Minimize your screen time

Avoid spending time in front of screens when you reach home. Many people believe that watching TV or scrolling through social media is a part of resting. But, instead, it exhausts your eyes more than they previously were. All the unrelated and inappropriate information takes up so much of your brain space that it drains you and makes you more worried and lazy.

Additionally, the blue light emitted from your laptop or mobile screens interferes with your sleeping patterns. This results in a night full of restlessness and shifting sides in search of some peaceful slumber.

Switch your shower time

Don’t spend an extra hour in the morning taking a bath and then getting ready. Alternatively, you can rearrange your timing and use your evenings to take a warm and comforting shower.

Researches have proved that taking a warm bath at least 1-2 hours before bedtime improves sleep and can be very therapeutic. Light up some aroma candles and freshen up the environment to make your bathing more restful.

Plan a Shutdown Ritual

Design a closing routine and stick to it for the rest of your life. As soon as you return home from work, change your clothes, take a bath, get fresh, eat a healthy dinner, and spend time with your family. When you enter your room after all the previous activities, declutter your bedroom and prepare your outfits for the next day. Set a clean and beautiful bed for yourself with all your essentials lying on your side tables, such as a water bottle or an alarm clock. This shutdown ritual will help you to stay systematized and give you enough time to wind down and tranquilize your storming mind.

Lastly, don’t take your work at home! 

Learn to keep a disconnection between both because once you get used to carrying your work home, you will lose all your time to relax from a restless day.
