happier home / 02
Making the bed. I would have to admit that as of two years ago I hated making the bed. I somehow married the cleanest guy on earth who thought it was crazy not to keep the bed made and I just could not understand. Lots of discussions on this finally resulted in a new strategy, whoever is the last one up makes the bed.
Well that was wonderful because at the time we made that deal I worked at 5:30 am and of course no one was up before me. Now that I mostly make my own schedule I have realized that I actually love having the bed made and even without our little deal I am still happy to do it. It takes less than 3 minutes and really can impact your day.
The days I wake up and make my bed I immediately feel productive and on top of things. Starting a day like that is priceless. I am also more likely to do other tasks that morning like make sure the dishes are done before I leave or if I wake up early enough I might even start a load of laundry. It sounds silly but making the bed has become one of the givens in my morning and I love the way my home feels because of it. If you don't believe me here are even more reasons to give it a shot.
