Your Evening Regimen
Most people forget that a strong evening regimen is just as important as a good morning regimen. Building a strong evening regimen allows you to end each day in a powerful state of mind. The goal of your evening regimen is to celebrate and cleanse the day, and to recharge yourself. Again, consistency is key here, and you want something simple that you can repeat every day.
After 3 years of research, design, and testing, we crafted the ultimate 4-step evening regimen that creates the foundation for the most powerful daily clease. Wherever you are in life, this 4-step regimen has everything you need for a complete mindset recharge. Of course you can add, experiment with, or exclude any of these items should you desire. For example, if you’re new to journaling, you may decide to start with one thing in the morning and build your evening from there.
We recommend that you start with this 4-step regimen before adding other items. Once you’re consistent with your evening regimen, you can head over to The Equilibrium Lab to spice it up.
