I can quite categorically say that I am not a night owl. If I decide to watch a movie after about 8.30pm, I guarantee I will not be awake when the credits roll, and I’ve even been known to fall asleep in the cinema. Me and sleep just have this special relationship, and let’s just say I’m pretty needy.
For some strange reason, however, there are a few things that I can easily stay up way past my natural bedtime doing..
For an activity that involves a fair amount of concentration, it seems bizarre that often if I can still be sat at my sewing machine up towards midnight, but even weirder is that I tend to be more efficient and creative the later it gets!
Cleaning makeup brushes
I find cleaning my makeup brushes oddly satisfying, and of course it makes sense to do them at night so they can dry out overnight, but it is a bit of a time consuming activity at the same time, so when its a pre-bedtime thought, it normally turns into a bit of a labour of love.
My nighttime routine often consists of plugging my headphones in and jamming around a little bit while I’m getting ready for bed, but sometimes this quick jam practically turns into a pre-sleep workout as I dance around my bedroom until my playlist is exhausted before I am..
If I’m hitting the sack in prep for an early morning gym session, my thoughts will often wonder to what my workout will bring, and I can get caught up in planning an absolute beast of a circuit to kick start my morning
Much like this one, written at 11.30pm..
