Think evening routines are just for kids? Turns out, there are plenty of reasons adults should have one too! From easing feelings of stress to helping you feel more grounded, an evening ritual may be the missing link to getting more Zs.
Ahead, we share exactly what you need to know about getting started.
The Benefits of an Evening Ritual
#1 Helps Wind Down Your Mind & Body Before Bed
If you find yourself stressed and anxious each night before you go to bed, it may be a sign that you need some quiet, relaxing time before you hit the hay.
Enter the power of an evening routine. Having some time away from electronics (or any blue light) can help calm your mind and get you out of that hectic state you may have been stuck in all day.
Consider doing an evening stretch or yoga sequence or just five minutes of meditation. Try adding a mug of Golden Superfood Bliss to this designated relaxation time. Sip on the most delicious bedtime tonic that’s made with a powerful superfood blend, including adaptogens that may help support a restful night sleep.
#2 Sets The Tone For a Less Stressed Day Starting the Night Before
A positive and low-stress day really starts the night before with a solid night’s rest. Having an evening ritual every single night will help set the tone for a more positive day.
#3 An Evening Routine May Help You Get to Bed Earlier
When you set aside a specific time to practice some self-care before bed, you may be more likely to get to bed earlier. Try practicing your evening ritual at the same time each night to make it more likely that you’ll go to bed at the same time too. This will make it easier to get those golden 7-9 hours of sleep each night.
And, with better sleep comes improved brain function the next day, a stronger immune system, improved mood, and fewer food cravings.
