It’s what a lot of us would have grown up hearing from our parents or caregivers.
It’s something that used to make me roll my eyes and grumble under my breath, but you know what.
It’s a great way to start your day.
It takes less than 5mins to do each morning and sets the tone for the day.
A made bed instantly makes the room look and feel tidier and gives you a quick jolt of accomplishment.
In short, it can set the tone for the rest of your day.
And if you are anything like me, then your bedroom is a safe place to go and relax, to leave the world behind for a moment or two or hide in when the family are driving you just a little bit nuts.
So walking through the bedroom door and seeing the bed made and ready to jump into at the end of the day makes you feel a little less anxious, a little more organised, and when chaos may take place outside the door, inside the bedroom, it’s tranquil and calm.
So thanks, mum… I’ve made my bed
