Nighttime Rituals can help you to build momentum, stay focused, motivated, and productive in the New Year. If you follow these, you will sleep well, wake up refreshed and be ready to conquer the day.
Ritual 1: Read a Chapter, article, or blog
Regardless of the content you absorb during the day, make it a nighttime ritual to read at least 1 chapter of a book, article in a magazine, or blog. This will stimulate your mind before bed, which I find beneficial because I tend to solve problems in my dreams.
Ritual 2: Document 3 wins
After stimulating your brain, write down 3 wins from the day. They don’t always have to be 3 big wins, so dig deep into your day to identify even the smallest accomplishments. Sometimes the small wins are more rewarding, so this is an important mindset to have.
Ritual 3: Gratitude journal
Finish your day writing down what you grateful for. This strategy is crucial before bed so that you are focused on positive thoughts. The more positive you are before bed, the more positive your dreams are, and hence, the more positive you will be the next day!
