I’ve talked about my daily routines a few times before, but I haven’t focused on them so I thought it was finally time to take a closer look at my evenings.
I get home from work between 5 and 5:30 and the moment I walk in the door, I’m usually starving so I put down my bag and head straight to the fridge to cook dinner. I usually prep most of my dinners so they come together quickly, with only needing to heat it up or cook some eggs or fish to go along with it.
While I eat dinner, I often bring up Netflix and watch something while I eat. During this time I’ll also catch up on my emails and social media. If I need to finish up a blog post for the next day, I’ll work on that during this time too.
Evenings are my time to do whatever I need to do, whether that be errands or blogging or cleaning the apartment, but usually around 8 or 8:30, I start winding down my evening. My doctors put me back on birth control and this is when I take it, but at the same time, I also take Black Cohosh, a supplement to help balance hormones.
About 30 minutes before I want to go to bed, I heat up some water and mix it with a ½ tsp of Natural Calm magnesium. The warm water plus the addition of the magnesium helps me relax and unwind before going to sleep.
It may seem simple, but this routine brings me a sense of peace and helps provide consistency amongst busy schedules.
What is your evening routine?
