Right before bedtime as I am getting ready to unwind, I take some time to reflect. I find this time so important, especially when there are outside factors that could be having an effect on me.
How I spend my evening, greatly affects my sleep as well as the next morning.
Let’s be real. Other people’s lives can be absolutely fascinating. But is it really, “real life”?! Or is it judgment free?
I love photography, of all kinds! Also house plans and designs. I love social for that, but I’ve been feeling lately sucked in and lost, which isn’t a good feeling. A space that can cause anxiety, pass judgment, harassment, violence. I began by unfollowing the news, focus on the good in the world!
I’ve realized how “real life” is so much more than the social world that can suck us in, sometimes so very quickly!
Last night, I enjoyed a great sleep and started the day with my journal. It flows SO incredible! Setting the intention, pushing any fears or worries aside! Tonight, as I finish this in bed, I will be lights out before 11pm! A great achievement. We seem to be natural night hawks lol but we are working on this everyday!
Bedtime, sets the mood for a good sleep, for a good morning and even the entire day! Bedtime, once the kids are in bed, should be focused on me, unwinding, refreshing my own energy, versus various other people’s energy in posts etc, which the light from devices can be damaging to our sleep! Yes I have fell into this trap!
Tonight I remembered to honor MY routine. The way I unwind best. How else can I care for others, if I don’t take care of myself first! Something I also want to model for my children.
