If you’ve ever scrolled through Pinterest, Instagram, or other sites for cosy bedroom ideas, you’ll notice how neatly everything is arranged. Aside from well-chosen bedding accessories that make up the mood of the whole bedroom, the tidy setup makes the whole place more snooze-worthy.
But aside from giving your bedroom a cleaner look, arranging all those sheets and fluffing your pillows can do so much more. In fact, setting aside five minutes of your time to make the bed every day can boost your mood and productivity. It can also potentially help you sleep better at night.
We understand that it’s easier to roll out of bed in the morning and just leave your bedding where it is, especially when days are busier. But making your bed in the morning can actually help you accomplish more throughout the day.
Still not convinced? Here are some fantastic benefits of making your bed in the morning.
Whatever happens in the morning can significantly affect your day. This is why sleeping well, eating your breakfast, drinking your morning coffee, and having a smooth morning commute all positively impact your mood and productivity.
Making your bed every morning can also help you set the tone of your day. Take it as a small yet fulfilling accomplishment for your day.
Tidying your bed doesn’t only make your mattress and bedding free from dirt, but doing this also encourages you to keep the other parts of your bedroom clean. And if you’re the type to always clean your bedroom, making your bed in the morning can complete the clean and pristine look of your sleeping surface. This can also help you spot stains or damage on your mattress that you might not notice if you leave your bed unmade.
Making your bed doesn’t need to be Pinterest-perfect, unless you prefer it that way. What’s important is to keep your mattress guarded against dirt and your pillows properly fluffed. Of course, you may go above and beyond to transform your sleeping surface. You might even want to flip your mattress and rearrange your wardrobe this weekend.
How does making your bed connect to your overall productivity? As we mentioned earlier, starting your day right can significantly impact your energy. The seemingly small task of making your bed can start a chain of good habits and accomplishments throughout your day.
This also encourages mindfulness and enthusiasm to do more tasks for the next few hours. All in all, making good use of the first five minutes of your day makes a significant difference.
The smallest of things that you do develop as your habits. Simply making your bed in the morning can turn into a keystone habit that encourages other positive traits like cleanliness, a sense of responsibility, discipline, and even the skill of sticking to a budget.
This simple habit can give you the feeling of being in charge, which can also positively influence your outlook.
Like eating your breakfast or taking a warm shower, looking at your tidy bedroom can instantly boost your mood and encourage you to face the day. It can also make you feel calmer and happier since your bedroom is considered your safest oasis. This also reflects how you take care of yourself and your surroundings.
Notice that you instantly feel better when rearranging your bedroom or putting your clothes where they belong? This feeling can also be experienced when fixing your bed in the morning.
Studies also show that people with mental health issues feel happier when their surroundings are clean. So, if you’re thinking about making your bed, go for it! Small improvements in your environment can help you win internal battles.
Again, making the bed doesn’t have to be perfect, but making an effort to finish this task can make a big difference.
Tip: Fitted sheets make a good choice if you want to save time fixing your messy bed sheet.
Ever wonder why hotel rooms are so cosy and refreshing? The quality of the mattress is one factor; the cleanliness is another. A neatly arranged bed makes the whole room appear more put together and more inviting to rest on. Imagine coming home to your chaotic bedroom after the hours you spent at work or school. That’s certainly not an inviting place to relax. Plus, you might not even have the energy to fix your bedroom late in the afternoon or at night if you’ve already spent most of your energy doing other tasks.
Like clutter taken away, there’s something significantly pleasing about a neat bedroom arrangement.
Tip: If you want to create a hotel-like bedroom at home, choose white bed sheets, pillowcases, and blankets. Doing so will instantly give your room a clean and serene ambiance. To add colour to your bed, add a throw or decorative pillows. You might also want to use a warm-toned light to complete the inviting look. Of course, the quality of your mattress will be the biggest factor in ensuring your comfort.
Studies suggest that people who make their bed in the morning sleep better at night. This can be linked to the cleanliness of the environment. It also helps clear the mind from stress, which contributes to a lack of proper sleep.
If you’re still not in the habit of making your bed every morning, it’s your cue to do so! In the end, this 5-minute task will have a huge impact on your health and well-being.
Dusting off the surfaces and covering your mattress with a flat or fitted sheet minimises its contact with dirt that can deteriorate its quality. Making your bed every day also reduces the chances of it having unnoticed stains or signs of wear that you need to address.
Sleep is vital to your health and overall wellbeing. Making your bed first thing in the morning is a good indication that you're putting effort into your well-being.
