I have the worst sleeping schedule. A big thing for me is to develop a routine to get the most important things done. This actually lets me relax before I sleep. I never realized how important it is to truly unwind at night because it’s self-care. It sets up the next day for a win and it’s so beneficial. Here’s how I unwind at night.
Work Away From Bed
I used to always use my laptop on my bed. I have this giant comfy pillow that I would position the right way and rest on it. Although I have a desk, I never used it. I’ve heard people say that working on your bed is bad for you, I didn’t care because I wanted to be comfy. So now that I’m trying to have a routine in place I actually sit there. It helps to actually make me get my tasks done and I can turn off my laptop and just leave it there. It’s been so good so I don’t drag things out and get distracted. This has been such a plus to my routine.
Take Care of Your Skin
I’ve talked about Bioré before and it’s a brand I genuinely trust. A lot of my friends kept telling me to try Witch Hazel products because it does the skin well. So thankfully I got Bioré’s Witch Hazel Clarifying Toner and Pore Strips. I’m a huge fan of their pore strips and I was running out of toner so it was perfect timing to add them to my routine.
Bioré’s Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Toner is a dream! I love that it’s easy to use and don’t take too much time to apply. The toner restores my skin’s balance which has been so out of wack and deep cleans. Witch Hazel is a multi-purpose remedy and is known to tighten pores, purify, refresh, and heal skin. Bioré’s Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Toner has made my skin feel better because it has not been doing well with the weather changes and I can feel my face feeling so fresh!
Since I always feel like I’m rushing to get everything done before bed, multitasking is the name of the game. Bioré’s pore strips have always been my go-to and the Witch Hazel Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips are no different. I usually put it on while I’m working at my desk because the strip does the work on its own and I can focus. With all the Witch Hazel goodness, the pore strips use C-bond technology to remove dirt, oil, and blackheads. It lifts out all the deep things! My nose always feels so fresh after I’m done. It perfectly fits into my routine.
Set the Bedtime Clock
Setting up alarms for bed has been a life-changer. iPhone’s have a bedtime alarm too so I usually have a couple going to count me down and know where I’m at with my time. I used to think it would stress me out more, but it allows me to focus on the important things I need to do before bed and cut out distractions. As a self-proclaimed night owl, I now know when to sleep and I can get some decent amount of hours of sleep.
