Why You Should Make Your Bed Each Morning

I make my bed every morning. It’s a habit. When I think about it, I may have gotten this from my mother or it could just be an obsessive/compulsive trait that I have. Anyway, it makes me feel good. I feel like I have accomplished something first thing in the morning.  It freaks me out when hubby wakes up AFTER me and doesn't make the bed. He's perfectly fine with it. I see it as unfinished business. But that's me. Someone Famous Once Said Here is a quote to something I heard a few years ago that resonated with me: “If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride. And will encourage you to do another  task.  And another.  And another. And by the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed…”           -  Admiral William H. McRaven  Conclusion For me, a bed that's made signifies order and calmness.  So, are you on Team Bed Making? Disclosure: Lin
