How to Create an Evening Routine
Larissa Carlson, aka The Leo Style, is a lifestyle blogger and mother of two who documents her life through creative storytelling. Larissa wanted to find a way to help instil a feeling of calm, instead of chaos, in her time before bed; which has led to an evening routine that allows her to create ‘me-time’ before tucking into bed.
Larissa Carlson shares her experiences and tips on how to make time for yourself before bed…
After a busy day, it’s important to unwind. My husband and I wanted to develop positive habits around sleep hygiene, to create a nightly mantra that we can live by. These rituals are a huge part of my life, helping both hubby and I unwind from the busyness of the day - they help me spiritually, emotionally and physically. They are my secrets to waking up a happier and more well-rested mum.
I truly believe that what we choose to do at night directly impacts on our quality of sleep, significantly influencing our mood and energy levels for the next day. Chatting with other mums about shared sleep concerns has inspired me to share my own tips and tricks. I truly hope the routines below help you get on track and encourage a bit of me-time before bed - we totally deserve it!
