Want to Feel Good? Make Your Bed!

Another early morning! Do you feel like you are dragging along? I sometimes feel the same way! Although this might sound a bit off the wall, one of the things that really helps me is to make my bed! Yes. Seriously! It really does help. Did you know that making your bed is considered to be so important to improving mental health that there is actually a National Make Your Bed Day. I’m not kidding, there seriously is! And for good reason… 

For one thing, if you make it a habit to start making your bed every day, you may notice a change in your early morning outlook. It’s such a small thing and so easy to do. Even if you don’t have a lot of time, it doesn’t have to be perfect.  Just pull the sheets and comforter up and throw the pillows on top. Done! This simple habit can give you a sense of accomplishment for the day and you haven’t even left the house yet! With that simple accomplishment, it also sets the tone for the rest of your day. It’s not just about making a bed, it’s about beginning your day in an organized manner. This helps to encourage you to keep the rest of the room tidy.  A clean room and a nicely made bed – it’s a big win. Okay, maybe not huge, but we have to start somewhere and making your bed is a great place to begin! And besides, maybe you will begin to enjoy that clean tidy space so much, it will spread to the rest of the house! 

And the benefits don’t stop with starting your day off on the right foot, which of course is great for our mental health, but the end of your day also benefits from that early morning 5 minute job. Coming home at the end of the day to a freshly made bed can help lower stress levels and improve your mood. Did you know that studies have shown that people with organized homes are healthier than people with messy homes, and it all starts with making your bed!

Want to take it to the next level?

75% of people said they sleep better when their sheets are freshly cleaned. So once a week or so, tossing your sheets, mattress protectors and pillowcases in the wash before you leave for work and throwing them in the dryer when you get home, means you can have that fresh from the dryer feeling as you drift off to sleep. Even better – wash your sheets on weekends and hang them out on the line for a fresh, crisp, intoxicating aroma. Is there any better smell?? (Well puppy breathe and newborn babies – but those are both another blog!). Oh, and don’t forget about your pillows. They need to be washed at least a couple of times a year to keep them rejuvenated and free of contaminants. 

Since you are doing such a fabulous job keeping your room tidy and your bed made, it might be time to upgrade the linens! Nothing motivates you to keep that good making your bed habit quite like beautiful new sheets and comforters! Bed, Bath & Beyond is just one of many places where you can find gorgeous linens of all kinds.
