Dear Little Sister...My Nighttime Routine
Dear Little Sister,
Ready for part 2?!
So you've had an amazing day, rocked your morning routine and now it's time for bed! How do you end a perfectly awesome day?!
Or maybe your day was horrible. You tried everything you could but no matter what, things actually got worse. Don't worry Hun, I've got you. Nighttime is the perfect time to reset. Here are some of my favorite ways to recharge and refresh ourselves before the next day.
1)Remove all of the Bad
Cleanse your skin, drink some lemon water, and take a nice bath(if you have the time.) Let go off all the toxins in your body, in your heart, and in your mind. Allow yourself to find a peaceful place so that you can get the rest you need and have a better day tomorrow.
Face Masks are the BEST at night!! They are ultra-hydrating and repairing!
Tip: Using a face mask at night will help prevent your skin from feeling dry in the morning! When we sleep, our skin goes without a drink for hours! That's why in the morning it's awesome to drink water right away! But if you can't, using a mask will help fight the problem before it starts. My favorites have been these cute little Korean masks from Musteav!!
Remember that there is something good in everyday. Sometimes we're just too busy to see them. Try to take this time to reflect on the good of the day. Did you make a new friend? Did something go better than planned?
What about bad? Are you glad the days kinda over? Either way, we get to take this time to allow ourselves to be free of anything we don't want tomorrow. We've been given the gift of dreams. Allow yourself to dream big beautiful dreams.
Tip: I loooove playing the "Dan Gibson" station on pandora while writing my thoughts. He writes instrumental music with nature sounds! It's super calming and will help you drift to sleep.
Eventually, you will want to actually go to sleep. Try to allow yourself to have more than 5-6 hours of sleep. If you're working on homework, sometimes the best thing is to sleep and try again when you feel more refreshed. But don't deprive yourself of good genuine sleep. You've worked so hard, be kind to yourself-and get some good sleep! You've earned it!!
Tip: If all else fails, try drinking a warm cup of tea. It will soothe everything and quiet your mind. Place it in a cute cup and now you have cute pictures for the next morning!
No matter what day you've had, we all deserve a fresh start. I hope you have wonderful dreams, and in the morning-they'll come true.
Your Big Sister
