Do you remember the days when your parents would nag you to make your bed? Do you remember thinking that making the bed was a waste of time and a pointless task, because it would just get messed up again? Well now that we’re adults, making the bed can still prove to be a tedious task on certain mornings, especially if you woke up late or if you just don’t feel like it. Today we’re going to give you a couple of reasons why you should make your bed every single morning to help improve your day, and how to make your bed like a pro!
It’s easy to roll out of bed, get ready for work and leave the room without being affected by a messy bed. But, think about how nice it is to come home and get into a clean and organized bed. Your bedroom will instantly feel cleaner and more organized as soon as you smooth the sheets, fluff the pillows and arrange your duvet in the morning.
After a couple of days of making your bed every morning, it will quickly become part of your daily routine and you’ll find that other good habits will naturally follow. Simple tasks like putting your shoes away, hanging up your jacket, organizing your mail and more will become second nature and you won’t think twice before doing them.
A freshly made bed means that your room is organized and decluttered. If your bed, your space and your home are clean and decluttered then your mind will also be more focused and sharper. When you can think and function on a clear mind you will also experience less stress and more happiness.
Imagine if you had a to-do list for house chores that need to be done every day – make your bed, empty the dishwasher, fold the laundry, take out the trash, etc. Now imagine if you get to check off something on your to-do list early in the morning before you’ve even had a cup of coffee. Making your bed in the morning and checking it off your to-do list helps to make way for new opportunities throughout the day, it will give you a small sense of pride and encourage you to keep going through your to-do list so you can complete as much as you can.
Even though making your bed is a relatively small task, it can be one thing that you do every day to help you feel accomplished. Kicking off your day on a positive note and taking a few minutes to get organized early in the morning can help set you up for success for the rest of the day.
