Winter Night Routine | January 2016
In this post, I'm gonna write about the things I do after 10:30 pm. I have mentioned 'winter' here because I do few of the things only on winter nights. This post consists of genuine things I do, and nothing is made up to 'look' cool.
BLOG PROMOTIONAL ACTIVITIES
By 10:30 pm, I'm usually done with writing blog. I start with the promotional activities on various social media sites. It takes quite some time to promote and then reply to the commentators. I also follow or comment on my fellow bloggers' accounts. I switch off the PC after this.
PICKING OUT OUTFIT FOR NEXT DAY
I pick outfit for the next day, including undergarments, and keep them on the chair inside my room.
PICKING UP BAG
I also transfer all the stuff from one bag to another, depending on the outfit. I go through my agenda and see if there's anything due tomorrow. According to the lectures, I remove a book outside and keep inside the one that I'll need for the next day's class. I also take out the lunchbox and wash it. Then, I take out the bottle and keep it in the kitchen. After the bag is packed, I keep it on the same chair where I've kept my next day's outfit.
PUTTING MOSQUITO REPELLENT
Lately, the number of mosquitoes in my area has increased. I used to boast earlier saying how clean my area is and how there's no one mosquito. But suddenly, they've started coming in. So to tackle this, I burn Good Knight Fast Card and switch on the Good Knight. (Just yesterday, my mom purchased a low smoke coil, and it was marvellous!)
VISITING THE LOO
It's already 10:50 pm by this time, and then I visit the loo.
BRUSHING MY TEETH
Frankly, I do this 5 out of 30 nights.
WASHING FACE WITH A FACEWASH
Immediately, I wash my face with Clean and Clear facewash. I tap it dry using a hand towel.
I drink a glass of water, and if I feel my throat is itchy, I microwave water in a mug and drink it.
Once I'm done with water, I switch off all the lights and come to my bedroom. I spray the Votre Pore Shrink Toner and let it dry.
I used to apply a moisturiser a week back, you can say. Nowadays I don't feel my skin itchy or dry, and so I don't apply.
If I have a pimple on my face, I apply the Garnier Pimple Control Pen or Soframycin Skin Cream. I don't really know if it has any effect on the pimples. Lately, I've been testing and so I thought I shouldn't apply any sort of medicine on my pimples to check how quickly the pimples reduced in size. I was shocked to see it vanished more quickly. I don't usually apply anything on pimples, but some nights I do.
LIE DOWN AND BE ON PHONE
At about 11:15 pm, I'm done with all the nightly chores and switch off the lights of all the rooms. I lie down with my glasses on. I connect my phone with a charger and be on it till 12:00. I either chat with my friends or surf on Pinterest or Facebook. If at all I'm sleepy or there's nobody to chat, I keep the phone before 12:00.
The alarm is on repeat. But before sleeping, I make sure the time and date is right.
SWITCH OFF MOBILE DATA & TURN OFF WIFI
Lastly, if my mobile data is on, I turn it off. Later, I switch off the WiFi as everybody is asleep and nobody needs it any longer. Sometimes, my brother is awake with his laptop, either on YouTube or watching a TV show. No matter what he's watching or even if he is on his cellphone, surfing, I do not switch it off, unless he's asleep.
This is the best thing about nights. I lie down and think of scenarios that will never happen. It's fun to 'make dreams', I swear.
I don't realize when I fall asleep while 'planning scenarios and making dreams', but I love it when I do.
What's your 'real' winter night routine?
