I absolutely must read before bed. Otherwise my brain keeps on thinking and no matter how tired I am it just keeps going and going and going. Reading slows me down; my breathing, my thoughts, my actions. I get ready for bed by brushing my teeth and putting on comfy pajamas and then I prop myself up against pillows and slip between my bedsheets. It is so soothing. I put on a good lamp or two (or some nights when I am tired, three) and read away. I like to get a few hours in before turning off the airport strip of lights and roll over to sleep. I’m starting to yawn just thinking about this routine!
