Different strokes for different folks, Darius: if I did all that in the 30 minutes before bedtime, I’d be as wide-eyed as a startled cat. But I certainly do those things, or some equivalent, to close out my day and tee up the next one — I just do it earlier in the evening so I can spend at least some time plotzing on the sofa with my better half and watching something worthwhile on TV, before I tiptoe off to bed and read myself to sleep.
Sweet dreams . . .
