I didn’t always used to … but I do now. It’s habit. Ingrained in me as solidly as brushing my teeth and combing my hair. It’s made a difference in my life. It has real potential to make a difference in yours, too.
It’s a simple task. It’s even one of the first baby steps in the Flylady system (simplified house cleaning and decluttering), too.
The Bed Habit
I didn’t used to always make my bed, especially back on the farm because I frequently climbed back in for a little nap after morning milking. But a few years ago I started making it every morning as soon as I got up.
Reluctantly many days at first. However, it was surprising how quickly it changed into a automatic habit. So much so that nowadays it’s difficult to walk away from the bedroom without at least straightening the covers.
I’ve never heard anyone explain the reasoning why making your bed is so important as the first step to seeing the changes you want in your life come true than US Navy Admiral William McRaven.
What about you? Do you make your bed every day? What changes are you wanting in your life that have been in stuck mode too long?
