How to prepare for a successful day at work the night before

To shut your body down for the day and get a restful night’s sleep, it’s important to put routines into place.

I try to stick to a bedtime routine that allows my mornings to be just a little bit more relaxed. Who couldn’t use an extra 15 minutes of calm in the morning?

To shut your body down for the day and get a restful night’s sleep, it’s important to put routines into place.

This enables the body to relax and recognise that it’s time for bed. Here are some recommended steps.

1. Tidy up.

It’s no fun walking into a dirty kitchen to make breakfast. Take time in the evening to wash the dishes and pick up around the house. Pick your clothes up off the floor and put them away. When you take just 15-20 minutes to clean up at the end of the day, it can make a big difference in how the house looks and how you feel in the morning.

2. Prepare what you need in the morning.

Gather pertinent files, books and notes. Place anything you have to take with you in the morning near the front door. Some people like to check their email in the evening. Respond only to those messages that need your immediate attention. With this task out of the way, your day will start more quickly.

 3. Plan your meals ahead of time.

If you take your lunch with you, prepare and pack as much as you can the night before. Choose to start the day with a more nutritious and filling choice than simply drinking a cup of coffee on the go.

 4. Lay out your clothing.

Check the weather forecast and lay out your clothing for the next day, including shoes and accessories. Make sure your shoes are polished and your outfit is crease-free and ready to wear. You’ll feel more put together when you don’t have to make rushed decisions or search for the iron.

Have cosmetic and grooming items organised and within easy reach. If the forecast calls for rain, place an umbrella and a raincoat by the front door.

5. Stick to a regular bedtime.

When you maintain a regular bedtime, your body starts to wind down by a certain each day. A half hour to an hour before bedtime, shut off all electronic devices (including your phone), lower the lights and engage in an enjoyable activity, like reading.

According to studies, the glow of electronics stimulates the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that controls sleep activities, and delays the release of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin.

In addition, these devices cause cognitive stimulation and stress, producing cortisol, a stress hormone that can block sleep.

Aim for at least seven or eight hours of sleep. When you do this, you’ll awaken more refreshed and ready to go.

Try it for a week and see the difference it makes. Tell us here of www.facebook.com/enterprisemadesimple, how it goes
