10 Things To Do At Night For A Good Morning
1. Do a quick tidy
Put things away and straighten up a little. It will make all the difference to wake up and see a sense of order in your home.
2. Preempt morning panic
Attack the trouble areas the night before. Coffee beans in the machine? Work outfit decided? Kids’ schoolbags packed?
3. Prepare the breakfast zone
Set the table and create a pleasant vibe in the dining area. Flowers, a potted plant or bright placemats can help make a cheery start to your day.
4. Make a list of things to handle tomorrow
Get niggles onto a to-do list – it will make room in your head for sweet dreams.
5. Set the alarm (if you need it)
Allow enough time to get ready and be where you need to be without stressing yourself out.
6. Do something relaxing for 30 minutes before bed
That means switching off from work, the news and serial killer novels. Watch something pleasant on TV, chat with the family or curl up with a relaxing book.
7. Brush and floss your teeth
Ward off dental woes and go to sleep all nice and minty.
8. Wash your face
If you wear make up you’ll avoid the dreaded morning raccoon-eye. Plus you’ll keep your pillow-case fresh – a bonus for your skin.
9. Say goodnight
Share a goodnight wish or kiss with family members, a housemate or even your fave social network. It will make you smile, and smiling makes you feel good.
10. Think of things you’re grateful for
Do this while going off to sleep. Feeling grateful is linked with greater happiness. Plus it’s lovely note on which to end the day.
