Why Are Bedtime Routines Important?

Humans are creatures of habit2 . Like other routines, bedtime routines help our brains recognize when it’s time to sleep. By performing the same activities in the same order every night, your brain will see those activities as a precursor to sleep.

The importance of bedtime routines stems back as far as childhood.

Bedtime routines help children connect with their natural circadian rhythms and practice healthy habits that promote good sleep. Bedtime routines have been found to have profound positive impacts6 in other areas of children’s lives, eg. better memory, mental health, and attention.
