Bedtime Ritual

I swear by a hot shower before bed. Not only does it feel fantastic to wash away the day and slip into clean sheets, but it adjusts your core temperature so you’re ready to wind down by the time you hit the sack.

And as much as I love catching up on my DVR, about two years ago I started reading before bed. It’s helped me plow through the pile of books I’d been meaning to get to, as well as prevented me from stimulating my brain with the TV, computer or phone in those precious last minutes before drifting off to sleep.
