It’s amazing how one little habit and mindset shift can turn everything around.
I’ve shared a couple of stories recently about my personal experience with morning routines.
I thought it’d be a good idea to talk a little bit about my nighttime routine! Because it plays a huge role in my wellness.
As a coach, I’m on the go A LOT. Some days are crazy busy, and they also can be pretty physically demanding.
And a lot of the time, I used to come home at night feeling WIPED OUT.
I’m all about keeping it real and transparent, and I thought it was important to share what USED to be my evening routine:
Super inspiring, right? (I kid – because these are definitely NOT #lifegoals!)
I was tired of having a “meh” night .. and I also wanted some free time on the weekends.
Because I was so unproductive during the week, I ended up spending the weekends doing chores and getting caught up on everything.
So … one night after dinner I decided to spend 15 minutes getting ready for “tomorrow”, even though I didn’t feel like it. (I actually set a timer.)
Prep breakfast - check
Get my bag ready - check
Prep my lunch - check
Grab some healthy snacks for tomorrow - check
Taking just those few minutes made a HUGE DIFFERENCE in my day. HUGE. Plus it made it SO much easier to stick to my morning routine.
Even though I normally eat a pretty clean diet, this took it to the next level and my energy improved a lot.
Over time it was a total gamechanger. I’ve even added a few things since then:
For me, with the whole world focused on the ultimate “start your day” routine, it is actually what I do at NIGHT that sets me up for success.
