The best way to unwind after a long day is a self care night routine. See below for tips on how to have the best night.
Self Care Night Routine Tip #1: Have a plan
Write down everything you want to do during your self care night routine. Doesn’t have to be a long list, but writing the ideas down will prevent you from doing something that will stress you out or something non-self care related.
Self Care Night Routine Tip #2: Put your phone on Do Not Disturb Mode
Select the contacts that you would like to contact you during this time, but do not be bothered by anyone else.
Self Care Night Routine Tip #3: Grab a relaxing beverage
Wine. Tea. Milkshake. Whatever makes you feel good.
Self Care Night Routine Tip #4: Put on a relaxing playlist
Music sets the mood.
Self Care Night Routine Tip #5: Put on some comfy pajamas or sweats
Jeans are not allowed for a self care night.
Self Care Night Routine Tip #6: Have a treat planned
I love having some chocolate during my self care night routines. Tastes so good and feels like I’m treating myself.
Self Care Night Routine Tip #7: Get started on the activities that you planned. Here are some ideas:
- Watching your favorite show
- Taking a long, hot bath
- Writing in your journal
- Closing your eyes and listening to the relaxing playlist
Self Care Night Routine Tip #8: Make sure you slow down and try not to do any “chores”
Self Care Night Routine Tip #9: Truly try to disconnect during this time
Self Care Night Routine Tip #10: Monitor your self talk during this time. If you are thinking negative things about yourself or your life, try to shift your thinking to more positive things
