Wednesday Wisdom: Change Your Routine

Life is either

Changing the routine you’re used to can be challenging.  It’s something that’s so comfortable and homy why would you want to change it?

Sometimes you need a change from your routine. Maybe a change is the very thing you need, but you wouldn’t know until you take that break.

Now you’re probably thinking well how do I change my routine? Anything you do differently than you normally would that’s a change.

Try doing one thing the complete opposite that you would do something. If you’re used to working from home, try going to your local Starbucks and work from there for the day.  Order some coffee, grab a seat and get to work.

I find that the atmosphere at Starbucks inspires me to write. So today, I decided instead of writing at home why not come to Starbucks instead. Of course, I had to order one of my favourite drinks Caramel Iced Coffee for an additional boost.

If you’re used to completing your chores in the afternoon, try switching it up a bit and completing them in the morning. You might find that you enjoy cleaning in the morning way better than cleaning later on in the day.

If you’re the type of person who loves being outdoors all the time, try staying home for the day and see how you enjoy it.

It doesn’t matter what you do differently in your routine, as long as it’s a change. It doesn’t matter how small or how big of a change you make, as long as it’s a change.You wouldn’t know that you enjoy something until you try so why not?

You’re bound to discover new things about yourself and new things that you love.

You won’t ever know that you enjoy something, until you try. Life begins at the end of your comfort zone so what are you going to change about routine?

My Bedtime Routine

bc-2

The time I spend getting ready for bed is the most relaxing time I have at the end of my day. Here is my bedtime routine from start to finish.

  1. The first thing I do is brush and floss my teeth.
  1. Then I remove my makeup with makeup wipes. These makeup wipes were from Winners. They are really gentle on my skin and I’m able to remove all my makeup with just one makeup wipe.

  1. If I’m wearing eye makeup, I like to use gentle eye makeup remover with cotton pads to remove my eye makeup.

  1. Following this, I either use a face scrub or face cleanser to remove any dirt or oil that my makeup wipes didn’t remove. To do this I like to use either the Dark Angels scrub from Lush or Cetaphil. These face products really help with clearing up any acne.

  1. After cleansing my face, I always moisturize my face using an Aveeno face lotion. These are the two face moisturizers that I’m currently using. It’s essential to moisturize your skin following any cleansers or scrub to prevent any dry skin. I also like to put Vaseling on my lips before bed. It helps with keeping my lips soft especially during the Winter months.

  1. Then I light some candles from Bath and Body Works and read. Reading before bed helps with managing my anxiety and reducing my stress. I’m currently reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and would recommend to anyone who needs a bit of inspiration.

  1. Lastly, I blow out the candles and head off to bed.
