KissinBlueKaren for Beyond the Books. This is a meme where we all answer a non-bookish question. It's always so fun to see everyone's answers and get a peak at the blogger beyond the books. This week's question is - What is my bedtime routine?
My bedtime routine isn't particularly elaborate or something that I consciously planned out but it does seem to be the same every night with very few exceptions
First off is a bath. I pretty much take a hot bath every night sometimes for a long time and sometimes for just a few minutes. I've found if I skip it it takes me way longer to go to sleep and I don't sleep nearly as well. On the rare occasion I'm just too tired or it's too late a shower might work but I much prefer a bath. Plus this is one of the few times I read print books so I'd hate to cut it out!
Second is the whole moisturizer routine. This is a serious process and one that deserves it's own category. There is body oil topped with enough regular lotion to sink a ship. Then there's the wrinkle cream which I started using when I accidentally turned the camera around on my phone and saw my forehead up close and personal unexpectedly. It was a bit terrifying.
Third is the straightening up the bathroom - PJs on, whatever I was wearing that day put up, towel hung up and everything else straightened up. This is one I've kind of added because it makes the next day so much easier so it's not fully in the routine.
Fourth is I flip my phone over to vibrate and lay it next to my bed, make sure the Tornado is tucked in, if I'm reading a creepy mystery or romantic suspense I check the door locks again.
Fifth - I settled down with my book (usually my Kindle) and read until my eyes absolutely refuse to stay open anymore.
That's about it! What do you have to do before heading to bed?
