How to Create a Night Time Routine You'll Love Winding Down To

← Back

💡 How to use this worksheet: Duplicate this page into your own Notion & start dreaming 😜

Step 1: Setting the foundation for your dreams

List out every single night time habit you've tried. Think back to your childhood, high school, college, pre-covid days, and everything between—write it all down

Habits I've tried:

Example
  • Read =
  • Journal -
  • Meditate +
  • 60 Crunches -
  • Skincare +
  • Gratitude +
  • Tidy +
  • Stretch -
  • Sleep early +
📌
Bonus: Next to every habit, add a "+" for ones that sparked joy & were impactful, "=" for ones that were not amazing but not bad, and "-" for ones you can live without

Step 2: Dreaming big dreams

Using the above as reference, write out your ideal night time routine. 🤓 This is your DREAM night time routine so dream big & be as detailed as you can

My ideal night time routine:

Example
  • Arrive home before 7:30pm (leave work at work), if earlier, cook a nice healthy & lighter meal while listening to an audiobook
  • Read for at least 30min
  • Meditate for at least 30min if I haven’t already
  • Spend 15min tidying and packing bags, etc for the next day
  • Wash hair every other night
  • Skincare routine with clay & sheet mask
  • Call parents and/or jams
  • In bed before 11pm
☁️
Remember: You don't need to squeeze in every single "+" impactful habit in the evening. You could space them out throughout the day

Step 3: Turning dreams into reality

Copy & paste your ideal night time routine below, then highlight your non-negotiable aka "must-haves" for your evenings

My "must-have" night time routine:

Example
  • Arrive home before 7:30pm (leave work at work), if earlier, cook a nice healthy & lighter meal while listening to an audiobook
  • Read for at least 30min
  • Meditate for at least 30min if I haven’t already
  • Spend 15min tidying and packing bags, etc for the next day
  • Wash hair every other night
  • Skincare routine with clay & sheet mask
  • Call parents and/or jams
  • In bed before 11pm
Once you've identified your "must-haves" for your evenings, the rest are your "nice-to-haves." Start working on your must-have night time routine. You can start adding the "nice-to-haves" once you’ve gotten a good hang of your new ~ideal~ routine 😉

Step 3.1: Finalizing your dream night time routine ✨

Type out your routines with only your highlighted must-haves.

My night time routine:

Example
  • Meditate for at least 30 min
  • Skincare
  • Call parents and/or jams
  • In bed before 11pm
🥳
Congrats! This is your new night time routine!
