Call it waking up on the wrong side of the bed. Call it not being a morning person. Call it Monday. You might think there’s nothing you can do about waking up in a bad mood, but a pre-sleep ritual can make all the difference.

Keep reading to learn more about creating your own, unique ritual using relaxation and affirmations before sleep.

The Importance of a Nighttime Routine

There’s nothing worse than the feeling of having had a bad night’s sleep. Not only will wake up in a bad mood, but a restless night can lead to problems all day long.

You’ll most likely become tired throughout the day which can affect concentration and productivity. A lack of sleep can also cause headaches and a general feeling of being unwell.

Creating a healthy and happy nighttime ritual can help you relax before bed. That means a better chance of getting a good night’s sleep and waking up with less stress.

How to Create Your Routine

An effective routine for better sleep and feeling great in the morning starts with creating and sticking to a schedule. Give yourself a bed time and be dedicated to getting to bed at that time every night.

When deciding what time you’ll go to bed each night, factor in the recommended eight hours of sleep, along with some time to wind down before going to sleep.

That winding down process may look different for everyone. It’s important to create a routine that works for you, by focusing on the activities that are meaningful and relaxing to you.

Ideas for Nighttime Rituals

While everyone should create a routine that is personal to them, there are some relaxing rituals that help many people de-stress at the end of a long and hectic day. Consider adding one or several of these activities into your routine:

  • Playing quiet and calming music.
  • Taking a bath with essential oils, like lavender, which promote relaxation.
  • Enjoying a hot shower and visualising the water washing away any stress from the day.
  • Ending time in front of screen, including the television and computer, an hour before bed time.
  • Ending meals and snacking about two hours before bed.
  • Meditation, journaling, or reciting positive affirmations.

Incorporating Affirmations Before Sleep

Affirmations are simple sentences that can be repeated to promote positive suggestions to your mind and body. Many of us use positive affirmations throughout the day, as a way to embrace positivity and release negative thoughts and feelings.

Affirmations before sleep can help bring closure to the day, focus on the good things that the universe has provided, and invoke a sense of calmness and peace before going to sleep.

Try the following affirmations, or use them as inspiration to create your own:

  • Today, I have done my best and I will continue to be my best self tomorrow.
  • I am grateful for the experiences I’ve been given and open to the opportunities to come.
  • I am open and willing to the goodness and abundance that the universe has in store for me.
  • I release any feelings of negativity, stress, worry, or resentment.
  • I am ending my day with joy and I am ready for rest.

Creating a nighttime routine allows you to reflect, release stress, and go to bed with a positive attitude. When you wake up, you’ll be able to start the day on the right side of the bed, ready to have a happy and productive day.
