TODAY IS MAKE YOUR BED DAY
Make Your Bed Day – not to be confused with ‘Aww, Mom, do I have to?’ Day, which runs for 365 days in the year – aims to make everyone aware of the benefits of making the bed every morning.
Apparently, it’s a great boon to mental health and having a tidy sleep environment, according to sleep researchers, makes for more restful sleep. Starting the day with at least one ‘chore’ already done and dusted creates a more positive attitude and can help you take the rest of the day’s challenges in your stride.
As the bed is the focal point of the bedroom, when it’s made, the whole room looks tidier, and becomes more relaxing and less stressful as a result. So, rather than leaping out of bed and into the fray leaving behind a tangled mass of procrastination, use Make Your Bed Day to start a new habit.
