As a child, we were required to make our beds every single day (even if we were running late). My mother ran our household like a fine oiled machine and we complied (as if we had a choice). Once I was on my own, I stopped making my bed for a long while. Then one day I started back.
I didn’t have an epiphany or a my-mother-was-right moment, but I slowly recognized that I feel better when my bed is made. When I enter my bedroom and the bed is put together I feel lighter, my head feels clearer, and the room itself feels entirely different.
I’m sure you’re aware that physical clutter junks up the space between your ears. And while I am not going to tell you to stop everything and clean your room (although that’s a grand idea), I do want to encourage you to build making-your-bed into your daily routine.
Even if your life is super busy, there is always time to properly make your bed.

Try it out for a week… and if you don’t feel a shift – stop.
