After being "switched on" all day (ie. coding, cooking, shopping, playing games, making plans for the coming weeks etc.) I generally reserve the evenings for "shutting down" time. This means switching off most stimulating things and cracking on some mindless TV or a background movie, then an hour or so before going to bed I'll crack open YT on my iPad and watch some really mindless videos 'til it's time to call it a night!

I tend to find without having the time to properly wind down I can end up going to sleep thinking about too much (whether it's work-related or just thinking about future plans) and in those situations I can end up being awake at 4am Laugh | :laugh: It's really important to draw that line at some point in the day where you can commit to shutting down the laptop/computer.

Edit Should note that my wife generally goes to bed about 4 hours before I do. With her being in the bedroom it gives me that freedom to mess around and watch stuff.
