My routine? I go to the bathroom, get undressed, get into bed, set alarm, turn on radio to drown out husbands snoring, get comfortable, close eyes, listen to Christian radio, sometimes pray, go to sleep. Then, I have to get up several times during the night to go to the bathroom, I pray some during those times.

Before going to bed I wash my feet and then have a brisk massaging of the whole body.It relaxes me completely. Then I lie down and think how was the day , what all went right and how to improve myself.Finally I thank god for this beautiful day that I had.Then deep sleep.

I really don't have any general practice before going to bed, just my normal hygeine exercises such as brushing my teeth & washing my face. Before I close my eyes, I say a little prayer acknowledging God for all the good things he has done for me.

Ummm..I pray all day long..nah..really, I usually fall asleep on the sofa, or I fall asleep listening to music. I make sure my dishes are washed, my cat is fed and the litter box cleaned out. I turn off this laptop, turn the heat down a little, and plug in my cell phone if it needs to be recharged. I say goodnight to my cat, and put stuff next to my purse that I need to remember to take with me to work the next morning (which I still forget sometimes). Then as I'm falling asleep, I try to remember the things I'm grateful for, and wonder what I'm going to dream about, and think about people I love and miss, and hope they're ok.

After I wash my face, even if I don't wear makeup that day, I crawl into bed and pray. I then turn on ESPN and Sprtscenter is usually on. It if is, I'll turn the volume low and fall asleep. But if Sportscenter is not on, I'll see if I can fall asleep to a crime show on Courtv. I used to tape Golden Girls on Lifetime and watch that as I fall asleep, but I'm not as picky now. Man, I sound way older than 25!

before i go to bed, i always have to watch tv or use the computer first to be able to sleep well lol i always just put the tv to sleep mode for about 15 to 45 minutes. but if the time as reached the sleep mode and i haven't got to sleep yet, i renew it to another 30 mins until i get sleepy or fell asleep. i get to sleep easier with the tv on, and if not, i can't seem to sleep from the silence.

Brush my teeth then I check on family members (who'd better be sleeping :) ) dogs are walked, make sure door is locked, all heaters off, the stove and oven off - turn off any lights that should not be on, put on my headcovering and say my night prayers including making an examination of my conscience.
