How to End Your Day in A Better Way

Published

on

Everyone seems clear on how to start their day off right: with meditation, intentions, and affirmations. We all got the memo that this is how we manifest the life we want, get centered for the day ahead, and call in the best of the version of ourselves before e step out the front door. But what about and auspicious nighttime closure of the day? How do you bookend your day and bring the same intentionality and purpose to your evening routine? Here are some concentrated ways to end your day right and set yourself up for a restful night’s sleep to recharge and reboot your mind. body, and soul.

1. Step Away from the Gadgets
If you want better sleep, it’s a good idea to step away from the gadgets. Your phone, tablet or TV can actually lead to less productive sleep. You’re much better off staying away from the gadgets for at least an hour before bed. Instead, read a good book, have a conversation with a family member, or just relax in a way that doesn’t involve electronic media. I like to play the piano and read before bed.

2. Drink Something Soothing
Contrary to popular belief, an alcoholic nightcap isn’t going to help you sleep better. It can actually cause problems with your sleep schedule. Instead, drink something else soothing. There are non-caffeinated teas that can help you fall asleep naturally. Chamomile is a common tea that is used to help people fall asleep. Others like a cup of warm milk, or a mixture of warm water and honey, can also be helpful. Figure out what works for you as you end your day, and go for it.

3. Exercise
Physical activity during the day can help you sleep at night. Don’t do it too close to bedtime, though. Get in your exercise, and you’ll be healthier overall, plus you’ll sleep better.

If you want to do a little physical activity before bed, make sure it’s slow and soothing. Certain yoga poses and stretching can be a good way to get your body ready for sleep and end your day on a positive note.

4. Plan Your Personal Space

Whether you want to hit the gym in the morning or have 10 minutes to catch up on the news, plan out what you can do the night before to make it a reality.

Layout your workout and/or work clothes
Set up your coffee pot
Make lunch
Print out directions for your morning meeting.

5. Review the Day
I use the 5-Minute Journal to help me with my day. In the morning, I set my intention. In the evening, I record the best parts of the day, plus write what I can improve on. This reflection before bed is a good way to acknowledge the day and let it go. This can help you prepare your mind for sleep so you are less likely to keep chasing thoughts around. It’s a good way to end your day and prepare for the next.

6. Review your goals for tomorrow.

Look at your calendar and map out your day. Include workout time, dress time, drive time, specific project time, email time, etc.

7. Timing

The good news is that all of this should take no more than 30 minutes, and when you start nailing it as a daily practice, you’ll be done in under 15 minutes.

If 15 minutes could save you hours of agony, beating yourself up, drowning in overwhelm, and feeling like a failure, would you do it? Of course, you would! So, give it a try TODAY.

Lastly, the key to making this happen is to schedule a recurring meeting with yourself every day. If your day typically ends at 5pm, schedule this time at 4:30 pm.

8. Meditation
Yes, you want to avoid using your gadgets before bed. However, I do use a meditation app to help me clear my mind and fall asleep. I don’t use my phone for an hour before bed, except to pull up the app and get it started. Then the phone goes face down so I can’t see the light. And the meditation app helps me get in a good frame of mind to sleep quickly and deeply.

Figure out a routine that works for you and keep to it, and you’ll have a good way to end your day and be ready for more productivity tomorrow.

People always place great emphasis on things you have to do a good regimen with which to end your day. Closing out your day in a clean and positive way is an easy way to prep for the next morning and plan for things to be even better.

Brain wave activity slows as you drift off to sleep, which is when your subconscious mind is most receptive to suggestion—and you can program it most for success. Here’s a nighttime power play to really line everything up and set your subconscious mind up for success while you slumber: repeat affirmations such as “I am safe. I am loved. I am happy. I am fulfilled. I am successful” on a loop until you drift off to sleep. You’ll wake up with happiness and success codes built into the blueprint of your day, ready for you to download to create the highest vision of your life!
