Tonight I chose to work out instead of relaxing with a glass of wine or ice cream. It was a tough decision, but I’m smiling now. I bet I’ll sleep better too! I put on my work out clothes this morning with the thought of working out first thing and the day slipped away. I’m glad I still had my running shoes on after the dinner dishes were done and made my way to the garage instead of the couch. Baby steps…or actually 3.53 miles! Yay, for the little changes.
What little changes did you get to make today?
Wishing you well.
What is your night time ritual? Do you have one?
I’m looking to shake mine up a bit.
Do you sit on the couch? Eat? Read? Play on your computer? Workout? Shower? Have salty or sweet snacks? Maybe a bowl of cereal? Drink wine or a cocktail? Sleep?? There’s a concept.
Isn’t it funny to think that everyone does it a little differently? How many people have the same routine most nights? I’m curious.
Tonight I showered at night but usually I shower in the morning. The lighting in the shower was very different at night. I washed my face and moisturized it and it feels so clean and fresh. I love it and have time to enjoy just being clean and refreshed before rushing off someplace or doing something. I might like this new ritual.
I blow dried my hair and got out most of the moisture before climbing into bed. I hardly ever wash my hair at night, yet Juliana likes to go to bed with wet hair. Opposites. Very interesting. Hmm…
Typically I like to have a glass of wine with dinner, however I am changing this too. I actually am wide awake and have more energy than I usually do. I like this feeling and actually only miss the ritual of having a shared drink, more than I miss the actual drink. So curious.
What other things do we do out of habit and not really think about? What happens if we think about what we’re doing and actively choose and decide to shake things up? This is really fun!
Think about your routines and think about changing just one for a night or two and see what you think. You might be pleasantly surprised.
Good Night. Slaap Lekker. Sweet Dreams. Namaste.
