Making the bed is one of the most popular chores for little kids. Most of us have experienced not being allowed to go out, use the phone or computer, or even watch TV without making our beds.
Despite it’s simplicity, making the bed was undeniably a chore that many do not want to do. This can be the very reason why many adults now refuse to make their own beds today. A lot of us think that it is a task that can be avoided, especially since you’re just gonna use it again in the evening.
But did you know that making the bed has its own benefits? No matter how much you hate tidying your bed up in the morning, there are actually a number of reasons why you should consider making it a part of your wake up routine.
So, why should you make your bed every morning? Here are some compelling reasons to convince you:
Making the bed will force you to actually get up.
Think about it, if you have to make your bed every morning, you don’t have time to hit that snooze button on your alarm repeatedly. The thought of an early morning chore can really help you get up and start your day already instead of going back to sleep.
It can keep your bed clean and make your bedroom look neater.
If you make your bed by laying your blanket flatly on top of your bed and tucking the sides underneath the mattress, it can protect your bedsheet from collecting dust that could take place during the day. This, of course, means that you don’t have to lie on a dusty bed, preventing sleep disturbances caused by sneezing and other possible reactions to dust.
Making your bed can also help make your bedroom look neat. Without rumpled blankets and bed sheets on top of your bed, your bed won’t look messy, which, in turn, can make your bedroom look a bit more in order.
It can jump start your day’s productivity.
As experts say, starting your morning productively can create a positive chain effect all throughout the day. By completing a task as soon as you wake up, you can get a good rhythm running and ensure a day’s worth of productivity.
A made bed can show off your beautiful beddings.
If you’re a fan of nice beddings, making your bed can easily show it off. Sure, not a lot of people gets to see your bed, but you can still get to enjoy it’s beauty even if it’s you’re the only ones who can see it, right?
While we understand that making the bed can feel like a tedious task, the benefits have their own merits worth considering. Why not give it a try and see for yourself whether making your bed can create a difference in your routine and productivity? You’ll never know, it might just be the thing you need to kick start your morning.
