I decided that I need a bedtime routine. Something that tells my body that it is time to wind down and get some rest, not go into overthinking/stressing/worrying mode. I put my new routine into action Tuesday night.
The idea came from Carrie in her comments on my Stress 2011 post.
I made a nice cup of hot chocolate and then read while drinking it. I read scriptures and a book. It worked because when I went back to bed I fell asleep pretty quickly.
Now, I may not need this routine every night, but I think it is nice for those times when I am having some trouble.
Does anyone else have bedtime routines?
