Evening Rituals: How to prepare for a restful night— awake or asleep
Do you exhaust yourself with jam-packed evenings? Do you zone out in front of HBO or on computer games? No matter how you spend your evenings, by the time you get to bed, you can't wind down.
Instead of zoned or crammed evenings, you need a transition: Evening Rituals. They turn your doing day into a being night. Evening Rituals create the foundation for sleep, rest, Creative Insomnia, and tomorrow's creativity. They honor your body at night.
Evening Rituals can be simple habits or special activities that acknowledge your day, your emotions, your body's needs, or tomorrow's plans. Evening Rituals help you:
- Relax into your body (and remember that you have one).
- Instinctively soothe yourself, even when your mind is racing.
- Let your Unconscious Mind set the stage for sleep, rest, and Creative Insomnia.
Your Evening Rituals might include stretching out; decreasing the buzz; preparing your house, your body, your room, and yourself for bed; entering into rest—and perhaps sleep. Evening Rituals increase your melatonin, bid the day goodnight, and prepare you for renewal.
Evening Rituals are part of the Creative Insomnia program. You’ll transform your insomnia and honor your nights. Email me today to learn how to transition from day to night. We can work by phone or in person.
