Make You Bed Day might not sound like anything to get excited about…especially if you already make your bed every day…or if you so loathe making the bed that your bed is perpetually unmade.
But did you know that making your bed – as mundane as it sounds – every morning can boost your happiness, create a peaceful environment, and make you more productive? Just check out how one woman, who once hated making her bed and never did, discovered the happiness that comes from the 3-minute task over at Apartment Therapy.
Making your bed can also improve health by promoting a more comfortable sleeping environment, which results in a better night’s sleep.
If you’re a habitual bed-maker, kudos to you! If you never make your bed, give it a go today, then do it again tomorrow, then again the next day to see how it feels. Maybe you’ll pick up a new healthy habit!
