Having A Nighttime Meditation Ritual

Having A Nighttime Meditation Ritual

Meditation is a wonderful way to become more in tuned with your mind, body, and soul, relieve stress, and have an easy way to practice more self-care and self-awareness. If you are not interested in doing a morning routine with meditation, why not switch it around and try practicing it in the evenings? Or incorporate a meditation practice in combination with other nighttime routines.

Get Your Meditation Space Ready

Before you start your nighttime ritual, you need to have your meditation space ready and set up. It might move around your home depending on what other family members are doing at the time, since you need time to yourself for this practice, but try to schedule it during a time where you always meditate in the same place. This allows you to set up a dedicated meditation space, whether it is in your bedroom, office, or a guest room with a corner specifically for this purpose. Think about what you might use while meditating, such as crystals, soft music, a naturally candle or essential oil diffuser.

How About a Mask & Meditate?

Your nighttime ritual doesn’t necessarily need only include meditation itself. This can be more of a nighttime routine, where you do roughly the same things each night. Before you start meditating, it can be good to be in a relaxed state, which is going to help with your meditation practice. One way to do this in the evening is add skincare to your nighttime routine. Mindfully remove your make up and get out a mask. You can use any mask suitable for your skin. Try a sheet mask. Lay back on a couple of pillows, put your mask on, close your eyes and clear your mind. 10 minutes to mask and meditate is the perfect way to unwind and relax before going to sleep. Set a timer. When you’re done, simply add the rest of your skincare routine and wake up not only with refreshed skin, but with a renewed and relaxed outlook.

Add Yoga to Your Nighttime Rituals

Lastly, why not add a quick yoga session to your nighttime rituals? Even if you prefer doing a full yoga workout routine in the morning or earlier in the day, that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from a short session in the evening before bed. This is great to do either just before or after meditation, benefiting from both of these practices with more self-awareness and relaxation.

Yoga in the evening helps in so many ways, from relieving stress and relaxing your body to help you get better sleep, to simply getting into a positive mindset for more peaceful dreams. It is also fun to do with the family before everyone gets ready for bed as a nice family-friendly activity.

These are just some ideas to incorporate meditation in your daily routine.Practicing at night can have you waking up on the right side of the bed.
