My Night Time Routine

I am always interested to read what others makeup, workout, bedtime, etc. routine is; since I am in the process of getting ready for bed I thought it would be fitting to share my night time routine.

1.      Every night before I go to bed I take a long hot shower which helps me to unwind and relax
2.    After my shower I always opt for my most comfortable pair of pajamas that are currently in my dresser. I have to admit when it come to my pajamas I probably look a little on the nerdy side going to bed… I usually wear legging type pajamas and than if it is really cold I wear a pair of socks that go up to at least my knee cap.
3.    When I am all showered and have my pajamas on I turn down my bed and slip under the covers
4.    Once in bed I check my email, facebook, instagram, other social media, and try to write a blog post or two
5.    After spending time on the computer I am usually a little wound up. To calm back down, relax so I can have a peaceful nights rest I read for about 15-30 mins. I just bought two new books today, The Vacationers and 2 A.M. at The Cat’s Pajamas. I am debating which to read first, my level of excitement whenever I buy a new book might be considered a little ridiculous
6.    When I get to a state where I feel like I can fall asleep I close my book, check my phone, set my alarm, and go off to dreamland.


  1. Reading always helps me fall asleep! I like to off my laptop and phone and put them in another room so I won't be tempted to stay up late :)

    Thanks for sharing these. Have a great rest of your night!

    1. That's a good idea to put your phone and computer in another room! I have to shamefully admit that I get separation anxiety from my phone... Hope you are having a great start to the week!

  2. I take showers before bed too. I love getting into bed feeling clean and relaxed!


    1. I am the same way, I can't go to sleep without a shower first!

  3. I love reading before bed. So relaxing :)

  4. Good routine. I've been trying to put my phone away at least 1 hour before bed because it was keeping me awake!

    1. I know what you mean, my phone and computer always amp me up a little bit.

  5. The Vacationers is a great read! I don't generally read at night, but always carry a book with me in my tote bag (or loaded onto my Kindle app). I just finished The 9/11 Commission Report, and now I'm about to start The Catcher in the Rye. Can you believe I've never read that?! But also, showering then getting into bed all clean is the best. feeling. ever.
