Relaxing Night Time Routine

So it may be the end of a long week and you’re looking for a little me time?

Here’s my rendition of a relaxing evening routine that will have you ready for the land of relaxation and slumber.

Unwind

  • Pour yourself a mug or glass of your favourite drink and head on over to the ‘spa’ *ahem* your bathroom
  • Remove all your jewellery and accessories and put your hair up into a bun so it’s out of the way. I love using a fuzzy hair turban too πŸ™‚
  • Fill up your bath tub and add your favourite bath bomb, bath salts or bubble bath product and as you wait,
  • Complete your skincare routine to remove sunscreen/and or makeup
  • Apply a sheet mask or any mask of your choice to your face, you could even use this as an opportunity to use some nose strips (the pain of ripping it off after kind of puts me off adding this to a relaxing night time routine, but the option is there)
  • Take a long soak in the bath
  • Take advantage of the bath water and use an exfoliating mitt/glove or body scrub to get rid of all your dead skin cells, something I neglect to do when taking a quick shower!
  • Moisturise your body with your fav body lotion and don’t forget to apply serums, lotions and moisturisers to your face as well
  • Get into your PJ’s
  • Make yourself a warm drink such as decaf coffee, hot tea or a hot chocolate
  • Eat an indulgent snack
  • Moisturise your hands and apply your favourite lip balm/mask to hydrate your lips
  • I like to read a magazine or book, sometimes watch IG stories and I do catch up with some of my YouTube subscriptions. All of the latter make me somewhat tired although I know the screens aren’t the best *cringes*
  • Write down your to do list for the next day or week
  • Reflect on goals, past achievements buy writing them down in a journal or you could put a little mediation music on and visualise

Do you have a relaxing technique you’d like to share? Or maybe you could use a few of these for your next at home spa session. I hope it gave you some relatively easy ideas.

Remember to always take a little time out of your day for ‘me time’.

Love your health.

  1. I love your tips on having a relaxing nighttime routine, they are all great! I used to take baths all the time, but for whatever reason, after moving into our house three years ago, I haven’t taken a single bath. I keep staring at our bathtub longingly, haha!

    You know what, it’s funny because the experts tell us to avoid screens the one hour before bedtime because it keeps us up, but like you, I know a lot of people who have “watching YouTube” in their routine to help them get to bed!

    I stopped doing this because I got lazy, but I also used to keep a gratitude journal where I wrote down at least one thing I was grateful for before bedtime. It’s a similar idea to your last bullet point!

    1. I’m so glad you liked this! I feel though, much like yourself I need to actually use my bath more often. It’s just showers are so much quicker lol.

      Yes! I can’t tell you how many times I’m lying down on my phone and I fall asleep. The other night my phone ended up on the other side of the bed but I must have kept a hold of it as I turned it was the weirdest but it just came to my mind haha. Thanks for stopping by and reading, I always appreciate your thoughtful comments πŸ™‚ x

  2. Great post!

    Me time is so important these days as we become more caught up in life and tend to forget about ourselves and our me time. I find keeping track of any errands/scheduling details is actually really helpful! Not exactly a night time routine thing but every month I draw up a calendar and stick it up and just fill in any important details. I love being organised and this is one of the ways that I keep track of everything. I’ve never really been daily journal keeping type of person, but having that calendar to fill out monthly (and weekly) is a good habit to get into, especially when life gets too hectic πŸ™‚

    1. That sounds like a really good idea! You know, you’ve just reminded me, I used to draw up calender’s when I was 10 and it was so helpful. I might start doing that again. It’s therapeutic and I get to use fun coloured pens haha πŸ˜€ Thanks for your comment and thanks for reading πŸ™‚

      1. Honestly the best part is buying the coloured pens haha. I have a pack of 12 different coloured markers and it definitely makes the calendar more visually appealing. I like to colour coordinate certain things and having it all separated makes it that much easier πŸ™‚
