I just realized that although I have a good morning routine that I can move through on good days and bad, I do not actually have an established evening routine.

I bet this harms my waking and exacerbates insomnia. I sometimes have evening plans and sometimes not. When I do, there is no real pattern to how long they last and when I get to bed.

My inclination for how to solve this:

  1. Observe what helps my sleep
  2. Allow “time pillows” between last active task of the day and going to bed that put in place what helps me sleep
  3. Observe when winding down time needs to start
  4. Schedule winding down time. This will mean learning to say no to evening activities I might otherwise enjoy.

Will this help? I don’t know. Try and see.
