Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you are having a great week so far. In the past I have shared a few challenges with you guys and today I wanted to share another one. This is a “Beauty Sleep” Challenge. It will help you work to get more sleep every night and get an adequate amount of rest. So if you are interested in learning more, just keep reading.
Day 1: Set your schedule.
Before you can really start the challenge, you need to have some kind of plan. You need at least seven hours of sleep every night, so make sure to plan that out for the next seven days. Block off at least seven hours each night to devote to sleeping. The rest will come naturally that way.
Day 2: Eat dinner earlier.
Start eating dinner earlier and cutting out the late night eating. This will help you sleep better because your body won’t be trying to digest and process all the food you have put in your system. Eat a filling dinner with lots of nutrients so you won’t be hungry later on and you can get to sleep peacefully.
Day 3: Set a tech curfew.
Decide what time you want to put away your technology. I recommend making this at least an hour before you get into bed, but I typically shoot for two hours. This allows my body and eyes to stop focusing on all the blue light and start to actually wind down and relax. I find this helps me fall asleep faster and sleep a lot better.
Day 4: Cozy up your bedroom.
I like to have a cozy bed and a cozy space to sleep in. So I try to keep my room clean and decluttered. I keep a lotion next to my bed that promotes and enhances sleep. I keep lots of pillows and blankets on my bed so I can be warm and comfortable when it’s time to go to sleep.
Day 5: Implement a new bed time beauty routine.
Having a new routine can also help promote sleep. Whether it is a new skin care product that you get really excited about using or a new face mask that helps enhance sleep, a new routine may be just the thing you need to get excited about getting into be and going to sleep a little earlier/
Day 6: Destress and unwind.
Relaxation and staying calm is absolutely essential to getting a good night’s sleep. Me being the anxious person that I am has a really hard time getting to sleep at night. So it is really important for me to take some time every night to relax and destress. It helps me go to bed with a clear mind.
Day 7: Write it all down.
Another thing that really helps with calming my anxiety and sleeping better at night is writing everything down. I like to use my bullet journal to work through anything that I am struggling with, things I need to do, and ideas I have. This prevents me from having to try to remember it all.
That’s it for the sleep challenge! Are you participating? Let us know in the comments. At the end of the seven days, come back and let us know how it went! Thank you so much for stopping by!
