A purposeful bedtime routine.
Bid the last sun rays farewell from your open window.
Gaze down at the the passerby's on their way back home. Embrace the smallness of your existence and laugh at your concerns.
Acknowledge your small ecosystem: living-room succulent, table-top spider and pantry ant.
Splash water on your face and cleanse the frown off your forehead.
Brush away the judgement with mint-flavored toothpaste, make space for a genuine smile.
Stop by that forgotten hallway painting, notice a detail that you had never seen before.
Send a thoughtful message. Tell someone you care before leaving your phone for the night.
Step into your room, thoughts at the door where your shoes belong.
Undress with consciousness, drop the mask on the ground and crawl in bed bare.
Lights off and your racing mind along with it.
