Especially before bedtime, routines can be essential to getting your mental health back on track. Personally, I always shower before bed, because I love to get under the sheets feeling all fresh instead of wearing the residue of the day.
In the autumn, when the weather changes, I find that a special routine in the evening can also help to keep the seasonal depression in check a little. This helps me to wind down before I get into bed and I find that when I am able to do my routine, I am far less likely to toss and turn, mulling over the downers of my day.
