  • The perfect pre-bedtime night routine  sets you up for a successful tomorrow,  

  • activates the parasympathetic nervous  system, and primes you for restorative sleep.

  • Step one, create a consistent way of  signaling yourself to begin the night  

  • routine. It should be around the same  time every night. If you're like me,  

  • setting a reminder on your phone or scheduling  your smart lights to dim can keep you on track.

  • Step two, set yourself up for tomorrow in two  ways. The first is to ask yourself if there's  

  • anything you need to do now to make tomorrow  easier for you, like setting aside your ID,  

  • pager, and stethoscope if you need to get  to the hospital early. The second is to  

  • reflect on the day with a 2 minute journaling  exercise. This helps you wrap up the day on a  

  • positive note and trap your thoughts on  paper so they don't keep you up in bed.

  • Step three, activate your parasympathetic  nervous system. Lower your body temperature,  

  • avoid backlit screens, and reduce the volume on  music. If you can't resist your phone, try blue  

  • light blocking glasses. Some also find it helpful  to stretch or do breath work to wind down as well.

The perfect pre-bedtime night routine  sets you up for a successful tomorrow,
