surely everyone has their own rituals before going to bed. Some would take half an hour to an hour before they're all set to sleep. It takes me 15-20 minutes to get ready for bed, I dont really do much before going to bed. take a quick shower, brush teeth then get into my PJ and off to bed

Other than thaT, i wont be on my bed at all, and that includes watching tv.. lol =D Most of the time, i'm either reading of newspapers or watching tv before i sleep.. THere's nothin much new except for the same old routine, i guess ^_^

I just watch Tv ,brush my teeth and take a quick shower, cuz i hate taking showers in the morning. But im on a college campus so i get to stay up pretty late and i sleep with my girlfriend every night. There's nothing wrong with that lol. But one thing no one should ever do is eat before bed cuz u can gain alot of weight that way

I do have things i do before heading to bed every night. I first take a bath and that will relax me some, brush my teeth, take heart medicine, but moisturizer on my face and maybe some lotion depending on how i feel that night, get dresses in my pj's then off to to bed. It really doesn't take that long since all that stuff is always on my night stand waiting for me at night.

I usually gather myself and the kids togeather to brush our teeth and then we read a couple of books. Though if they are already asleep I just put the tv on timer and watch my fav shows til I fall asleep.

I am answering this discussion only to tell you how nice is to sleep in peace. Happy to hear you people have 'rituals', a small protocol before bedtime. Take your time! Is very relaxing for me to read this.

I usually watch David Letterman or Jay Leno for a few minutes, then check my email for the 50th time.

Hello mz_Ira! I don't actually have too many rituals before going to bed. I just brush my teeth and pray before I finally go to sleep.

Before jumping to bed i sit in front of the computer for the dinner to get digested.I also try to sit idle for sometime if the internet is not working.I will take the calendar and plan what i have to do the next day.I will also calculate with the calculator the earnings that are left to be made for the month.

Normally I would brush teeth, cleanse my face, put moisturiser then go check if the gas is turned off, check all the windows and doors if they are closed and locked then go to bed. If the weather is hot and humid then I would take a shower before sleep. But these few days the weather is cooling so I did not take any shower before going to bed. All these will take about 15 minutes.

WelI I usually take my shower around 8 after I have taken my dog out for the last time, then I either watch some tv again or catch up on some programs I have DVR'ed. Then around 10, I check the doors put my PJ's on then off to sleep. I usually fall asleep within 30 mins. I have to have some kinda noise though,if its to quite my minds starts wondering and I will never get to sleep so I often sleep with my tv on with the volume low. The worst part about sleeping with the TV on is that sometimes I will get into a program that is on and I wont go to sleep until 12.

Isn't it funny how we all get into our own little routines! Myself, I take a shower, put on my pj's, and then have a small snack and read a book for awhile, then brush my teeth and go to bed. After going to bed I actually watch TV for probably a half an hour before settling down to go to sleep. Best wishes!

My bedtime routine starts early, I'm either lazy or spoiled I'm not sure. We sit down at 8 and watch some tv in jammies till 11, generally eat a little something during this time. Right before we go up to bed I get a glass of water, check the front door to make sure it is locked, put the dog out to potty then in his cage to sleep (he still chews on my house) check on the kids, brush my teeth and hair and hop in bed. i get up once about 10 minutes later to use the rest room, I don't know why. and that's it I shower in the mornings, then get the housework and kids taken care of though in no real order.

I feed my daughter her last bottle of the day, change her diaper, and get her ready for bed. I then set my coffee maker up for the morning, and brush my teeth. I usually look around on the internet for a while, and watch the weather forecast. I like to lay there in bed and read a book until I get tired enough to fall asleep.

Hello mz_Ira, I first turn off Tv and computer, bring the dog's bed to my bedroom ( which stays in living room during the day) check all the doors are locked, get a bottle of water from kitchen , and go to bathroom take off my contacts if they are on, brush my teeth and get in to bed! It is my almost every night before go to bed. Have a great day!
