“Why should I be making the bed in the morning if I am just going to unmake it at the end of the day?”
I could never ask myself that question or even ask my mom. It was just expected of me that as soon as I woke up to get ready for school a part of my routine was that my bed was made.
I enjoy coming home to a made bed after a long day of work. When I am in a rush and come home to an unmade bed I am just like “OMG I should have made my bed” and then I can’t even sleep and just toss and turn all night…. Okay, maybe not that dramatic but you get the point. An unmade bed sucks while a made one gives you the same internal piece as taking a big deep breath and letting it out. It simply eases you. Plus it feels cleaner to slip under the taut sheets of a made bed.
The art of making the bed makes any room feel cleaner and gives a sense of calm. Even if you just disguise a made bed by simply pulling the covers up and leaving the mess underneath is better than nothing at all. Unless your children have a designated spot on your bed where they sleep with you it should not be a difficult task to tackle.
So the next time you find yourself with a little extra time in the morning or even if you are in a rush, come home to a calm room by making the bed early. You can always perfect making the bed on your days off work, fluff the pillows and such, and sprawl out all those decorative pillow shams you had to have. You know the ones that lay on the floor most of the time.
