Some people think that making the bed is a waste of time because you just get back in it each night. While for others making the bed each morning is a way to keep your room tidy. Yeah, making your bed up each morning may seem like a pointless chore, but it really can help.
In fact, tidying up your sleep area can significantly impact your well-being and even your sleep quality. How? Let us show you!
Start Your Day Right
Making the bed may seem insignificant, but it sets the tone for the rest of the day. You’re more likely to finish the rest of your tasks if you’re already productive before you’ve even had breakfast. As a result, you’ll most likely be driven to improve your everyday practice in other areas of your life.
Making your bed can also serve as a reminder that the simple things in life matter too.
It Encourages Cleanliness
Even the most orderly, stylish bedroom appears less neat with an unmade bed. When the bed is made, even if it isn’t perfect, it helps to style the rest of the room. Even better, once you’ve gotten into the practice of making your bed, you’ll be motivated to make other little changes to your bedroom’s appearance.
Making your bed each morning also allows your bedding to spread out, exposing dust mites to daylight and clean air, causing them to dry up and perish. However, when bedding is left unmade, it traps warmth and moisture, creating an environment in which dust mites thrive.
Increase Your Productivity
Productivity suffered as a result of the pandemic? Making your bed every day could help. That’s because it sets the tone for the rest of your day and gives you a sense of success even before you’ve had your first cup of coffee. According to experts, this is one of the easiest daily success wins to adopt. It sets in motion a chain reaction of other productive behaviors.
Perhaps you’ll remember to do the dishes after your workout and prepare a healthy breakfast for yourself. Or you’ll be so productive during a long day at the office that you’ll reward yourself with a hot bath before bed and feel relaxed. Great things can grow from little beginnings.
Lower Your Stress and Improve Your Mood
Making your bed, believe it or not, can have a positive effect on your mood. It can make you feel more relaxed and happy. According to various studies, people who suffer from mental conditions are significantly happier when their homes are tidy.
External disarray might sometimes represent our internal conflict, but the contrary can also be true. A clean environment can help us achieve inner peace in the daily fight we fight, and that is truly invaluable.
Suppose you’re still not sure that making your bed has a significant impact on your life. Would you change your mind if we told you people who make their beds in the morning are 19 percent more likely to enjoy a decent night’s sleep than those who don’t? Making your bed becomes much more vital when you consider the importance of a peaceful night’s sleep. It’s certainly worth the few minutes it takes in the morning. There’s no need to make an Insta-worthy bed when you wake up. Simply make sure that the comforter is on top of the sheets and that the bed is tidy. It really can be that easy.
