There are five things I do before bed each night. I have found they give me a head start on being efficient and productive tomorrow.
Here is my list:
- 1. Unplug from media! Quit screen time! For me, it involves prayer and Bible Reading. This priority is essential. The result? Calmness, clarity and remembering my purpose! It is so easy to get distracted and focussed on other things that we must refocus on that which is crucial and essential. Those who watch and marinate in the news all day long seem to become more agitated and angry. “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.” What an outstanding way to end the day, relying on the Lord for His strength and grace.
3. Be intentional. Identify the “Big Three” When I lived in Detroit the big three was the automotive companies, the big three for each day are the three most important things I must do the next day. Before I go to bed, I know what the three most important things are, and I list them.
4. Lay out everything you need for the next day. I lay out my clothes; I pack my backpack to take to work, I pack my bag for the gym. I also put all of my toiletries that I need out by the sink. Many people laugh, but this is the number one time saver in my life. It takes the stress and trying to decide entirely out of my mornings.
5. Review your goals. Keep reminding yourself of your priorities and values. In a world of distractions, we need to keep them front and center.
