1. Increased productivity
Making your bed should be the first thing on your to-do list each morning. It is a way of literally putting yesterday to bed and making way for the opportunities of a new day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. And by the end of the day that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed.
2. Developing good habits
Once the act of making your bed becomes a ritual, you may find that other good habits will naturally follow. You now keep your clothes off the floor and suddenly, dusting also becomes a compulsory custom that you welcome. Once you start to realise how quickly you can finish these tasks, you may begin to take these habits into other parts of the house, like the kitchen and lounge room. Before you know it, your whole house will go on to feel like a wonderful, restful retreat.
3. Your room will instantly look cleaner
This is especially true in tiny bedrooms. When most of the space in your room is taken up by your bed, it is especially important to make this an ongoing habit. Just because you lack the space, doesn’t mean your standards should be lowered. Honour the fact that good things can come out of small packages by making your bed each morning.
4. Feeling of accomplishment
It may seem too small a task to matter much, but starting your day by making your bed gives you a sense of accomplishment. Taking only a few minutes of your time every morning,
doing so can ignite a positive tone for the rest of the day.
5. Creating a retreat
We have good days, and sometimes we have ‘one of those days’. These are the type days everyone has from time to time, when we dream about collapsing onto our mattress and curling up in our sheets. We never know when these kinds of days are going to take place, but you can gain comfort in knowing that your bed is at home already made, waiting for you to rest and relax in.
6. Reduced stress levels
A decluttered bed makes for a decluttered space. A decluttered space makes for a decluttered mind. A decluttered mind makes for a decluttered life. You get the point…
Do you make your bed everyday?? Yes or No? If not, give it a go for 1 week, see what a difference it makes to your everyday life, coming home to a nicely made bed. I promise you, you will NOT look back!
