What Everybody Should Have in Their Night Stand

Many people have a night stand next to their bed but don't take advantage of the convenience. A night stand offers a place to store essentials so you don't have to walk to another room, ruin other people's sleep, or waste precious time when they get up in the morning.

Everyone's had the experience of waking up from an incredible dream, going back to sleep, and forgetting everything when they get up in the morning. Storing a notebook in their night stand allows them to keep a dream journal. They can look for patterns, evaluate symbolism, or simply record their bizarre visions.

Writing in a journal every night helps people make sense of their day, talk about issues, and let out feelings that they've suppressed. This encourages healthier mindsets and a better night's sleep. Later, they can read over their journals and see how far they've come.

Finally, a journal provides a place for a schedule. Individuals can plan for the day ahead and review past schedules to ensure that they stay on track.

With beauty essentials in their night stand, people can craft a nightly routine before they go to sleep. They might apply eye cream, put on lotion, and apply a face mask when they get in bed. Setting up a nightly routine tells their brain that it's time to go to sleep, helping them wake up refreshed after a relaxing night.

When they wake up in the morning, individuals can check their appearance in a mirror and brush their hair before they get out of bed. This is particularly convenient if they're running late and don't have time to stand in front of the mirror for twenty minutes. They'll also have essentials on hand if they need to get up in the middle of the night.
