there are some people who have so many ceremonies and habits before going to bed... some people, they can't sleep without having a half bath at night, putting creams on their faces and bodies, wearing their pajamas or night dress... some cannot sleep without a blanket wrapping in their body, or some like lots of pillows beside them, some like a mosquito net touching their body... some people wants the lights on before sleep and some wants it off, some can't sleep without a fan or aircon, and so many other ceremonies and habits... me, i just can't sleep without a blanket and electric fan...no matter what kind of weather there is...i feel much comfort with it and i can really sleep well...aside from that no more other habits and ceremonies...but occasionally i put some creams... how about you? do you have any habit and ceremonies before going to bed? thanks for sharing...and happy sleeping! ooops! happy lotting!

YEah, i need a closing ceremony before my sleep, to show that my day had ended, and a fresh start is coming.. lol =D Just joking though Most of the time, i will only be watching tv or mylotting just before i sleep.. Other than that, i will try to pee and drink a cup of water.. BUt i definitely need a fan though because weather is just too hot here.. As for blanket, pillow and all, i can do without them all, as long as i get to sleep.. haha =D Sleep is more important to me than anything else.. hehe ^_^

BUt alot of ple dun have that habit because they are afraid to wake up in the middle of night to pee.. lol =D BUt for me, i need to hydrate myself if not i will wake up with a dry throat the next day ^_^ Blankets are far too warm for me and i only use it during cold weather.. haha =D

ah okay! good that i am not like the others who wakes up in the middle of the night just to pee! even i drink before i sleep, all i need is a pee before sleep and no more...i will pee again when i wake up! love it coz it don't disturb my sleep! hehehe why do you think it gives you a dry throat when you don't drink before sleep? when actually when we are sleeping we're doing nothing?

it had been a daily routine for me to play soft relaxing music before i go to bed. the songs that i play every night are the songs that i and my fiance used to listen before calling a day. it is a reminder that there had been a time in my life were i felt being so loved by someone.

Well this may sound a little bit strange since coffee usually makes you awake, but I usually drink coffee before I go to bed. I don't know why but, it has always been my habit to drink coffee before going to bed. I think the coffee has a varying effect on me. As I wake up in the morning, I drink coffee to power me up, but in the evening, I drink coffee to make me sleep.

hello there...i don't think that habit as strange coz i do drink coffee at night too...sometime at night but not before sleep, maybe because coffee also have some ingeridients that can make some sleepy...?!? but anyway...if that makes you feel sleepy and give you more goodnight sleep then its ok...how about a warm milk?

At least I am not strange and I found someone that also drink coffee at night. But you are right, not exactly drink coffee as I sleep. I do drink milk from time to time but not every night. Usually, I drink milk in the morning. It is also great to have milk considering the calcium benefits. Best to you and may you have sweet dreams always.

Before going to sleep, I brush my teeth and wash my face. Then, I take my multivitamins and iron. Then, I put my favorite facial cream and my moisturizer. I also put lip balm in my lips and vaseline on my toes. Aside from that, I also put moisturizing lotion in my body. This is my everyday ritual Sometimes, I forget to do it when I am tired. But, I never forget to wash my face. It is important to me to delay the aging process and the way of taking care of my skin and my health.

I have to comb my hair and wrap it, and go to the fridge for a bottle of water. I get thirsty throughout the night and I wake up and automatically grab my bottle of water...lol :) Sounds funny when I type it, but that is just me.
