Stephen Curry leads a very pressurized life as the NBA star is the man that the Golden State Warriors look to more than any other for inspiration when times get hard.
That means that it can be very hard to switch off and be a family man away from the court, but it is something that his wife, Ayesha, is trying her best to help him with by implementing an interesting nightly ritual.
The pair first met when they were teenagers in North Carolina as they were in the same church and became good friends. They met again in 2008 and became a couple, and they have not looked back since. Now they have been married for 11 years.
They have got three children together and Ayesha primarily focuses on raising the children, whilst she also has other business ventures of her own.
She was asked recently on The Cut if she has any particular nightly routines to cope with the stresses of life or to ensure that her and Stephen actually get some time to themselves.
“I have a gratitude journal, and I try my best to reflect every night before I go to bed. I try to learn one new thing, like a new mantra or one new prayer, for my life every night. Something that I can close my eyes and reflect on in my sleep,” Ayesha said. “Or at least that’s the intention – that I’m going to create these sweet dreams for myself by thinking of something positive before I go to bed. That’s become a ritual for me.”
She then continued and shared how she has been trying to implement a new schedule with her husband.
“I was just telling my husband the other day that I think we should take 30 minutes every night for us to separately do something to better ourselves after we put the kids to bed. Whether it’s reading, taking a bath, or a mini-facial. Then at the end of the day, we have something new to bring to the table for each other, and we feel refreshed and revived. It’s made a huge difference already.”
