The Many Benefits of Making Your Bed
Make your bed! Even in college, you should make your bed every day. I know, we probably sound like your mother right now, but making your bed first thing in the morning is one of the best things you can do to set yourself up for success.

There are many reasons why this is the case. Making your bed is a simple way to start your day off on the right foot each morning, and it helps set the tone for the rest of your day. It only takes a few minutes, and it’s an easy habit to form and maintain. Here are five great reasons to start making your bed every morning:

5 Reasons to Make Your Bed Every Morning

Why make your bed? LeighDeux Bedding 2

It Encourages Better Decisions All Day Long

Some refer to making the bed as the easiest success-driven decision you can make. By making your bed first thing in the morning, you are starting the day with an accomplished task. It may sound insignificant, but even small victories can inspire you to accomplish more throughout the day.

Lower Your Stress

Simply taking a few minutes in the morning to make your bed can make a significant impact on your mental health. You spend a lot of time in your room, and for many, it’s one of the few havens we have. Disorganization leads to a scattered mind, so even a nicely put-together bed can make all the difference in calming a chaotic mind. You’ll thank yourself later when you come home to a tidy bed after a long, stressful day, and can spend your evening truly relaxing and rejuvenating in your bedroom. Favor a more disheveled bedhead look? Add a Euro Pillow, or toss a cuddly blanket across your mattress just-so.

Sleep Better

Making your bed also helps you sleep better. A good night's sleep is critical to being productive during the day, and a neat bed helps you rest easy at night. You're more likely to fall asleep faster if you crawl into a clean, made bed—and for longer periods of time. Plus, the more orderly your environment is when it's time to rest, the less likely little distractions are to keep you awake at night.

Make Your Room More Inviting

Once you've completed the bed-making process, your room will look and feel more inviting and relaxing. Your bed is like a centerpiece for your bedroom and has a major influence on the overall feel of any space, so it’s very important to make sure you love the way your bed looks. The Headboard Pillow® is a great keystone to ground your bedding style.

You'll Feel Proud

Start every day feeling good about yourself by making your bed! Even this small task can make a significant impact on how you feel. Sticking to a routine of making your bed will demonstrate your self-control skills, motivating you to accomplish even more throughout the day!
