Summary: Here are seven reasons you should start making your bed first thing in the morning.
 
Having your bed made not only pulls the room together, but it makes you look pulled together as well.

Most of us remember our moms telling us every morning to make our bed. Personally, I wasn’t allowed to leave for school until mine was made and I hated being late so it was a pretty good incentive. As we get older, however, people tend to let go of this habit since no one is watching anymore. But did you know making your bed is actually beneficial?


 
It makes things look nicer, but there are so many more benefits to making your bed to both your mental and physical health. Here are seven reasons you should start making your bed first thing in the morning:
 
  1. It looks nice. This is kind of an obvious one, but you never know when you might have an unexpected guest. Having your bed made not only pulls the room together, but it makes you look pulled together as well.  
  2. It makes you feel productive. Going into a busy day, you may feel like you’re barely keeping your head above water. While it seems small, making your bed at the beginning of the day is one thing you’ve accomplished.  
  3. It’s healthier. Straightening up your bed can help keep dust and dirt from getting underneath your sheets with you. This is especially helpful for anyone who deals with allergies.  
  4. It can calm your mind. Having a clean, organized space can help with anxiety. For many people, being in a disorganized environment only contributes to racing thoughts. Making your bed is a simple way to keep your space more calming.  
  5. It’s welcoming. When you get home from a long day, the last thing you want to deal with is a messy home. Having a made bed makes your bedroom more inviting and will help your mind relax rather than worry about dealing with a mess.  
  6. It helps you sleep better. Most people sleep better when their sheets are nice and neat, rather than twisted. Along with making you more calm, being able to slide into your bed without dealing with a mess makes your evening more relaxing.  
  7. It’s harder to go back to sleep. If you get up right when your alarm goes off and immediately make your bed, it’s going to be a lot harder to hit snooze and go back to sleep. Jump up and do this before your brain even has a chance to wake up and realize what’s happening.
