Simple Evening Routine Checklist

Sharing is caring!

When you create your evening routine checklist, you need to think ahead to the next morning. What can you do the evening before that will set yourself up for success the next day?

I used to wake up to a sink full of dishes! In order to eat breakfast I had to dig through a sink full of dirty dishes so that I could wash a bowl for my cereal.

One day, I finally had enough of doing this every day. So the first evening routine idea that I added to my checklist was to wash the dishes every night after supper.

Then I added to the checklist.

Now, I’ve added a few other key things to my evening routine which help me practice self care and progress in my business.

Before you create your evening routine checklist, I want to warn you about routines. First of all, routines shouldn’t make life more difficult. Instead, routines should make your life easier by putting certain every day things on autopilot.

That way you get those important tasks done, and are able to meet a friend for coffee unexpectedly.
