4 Top Reasons Why I Make My Bed
I can’t tell you that I have been making my bed each and every day since we got married a little over 27 years ago? Making my bed for the past 10 years first thing in the morning makes a big difference. It makes a big difference in my bedroom, my attitude and in my husband’s attitude.
Let me tell you why I make my bed each day.
- Reason #1 The bedroom looks better. That is easy enough. There might be a pile of clothes in the corner but when you walk into the bedroom and see the bed made, you don’t see a room falling apart.
- Reason #2 You can leave your door open when you have guest over. Our bedroom doors are the first thing to close when guest arrive. The reason is that we don’t want anyone to see how messy it is. Your door can be left open if your bed is made and know your bedroom will be fine if someone happens to get lost and end up in there.
- Reason # 3 Makes my husband happy. This is the truth. A made up bed makes the hubby happy. I normally roll out of bed when his shower starts. I immediately turn and make the bed. When he get’s out of the shower he has a made up bed. I don’t know if it is because he likes the room to be organized or if it is because he wants it to be a place of refuge for him but either way, it makes him happy and I will keep doing it.
- Reason #4 You sleep better when you make your bed. That is the truth. If you take time and straighten the sheets and pull them tight, fluff the pillows and get the sheets straight, you will rest better. You will climb into bed and feel comfortable. Even if you are not going to make your bed in the mornings, give this one a try even if it is right before you go to bed. You will see the difference, that I promise.
