This unofficial holiday has no known origins, but its purpose is to encourage people to make their beds each morning. Once you are done with this chore, your bed should look like it hasn’t been slept in. But this holiday is more than just encouraging tidiness.
Studies have shown there are positive benefits to taking the time to make your bed each morning. While you make your bed, you have a few moments to think over and plan your day and what you would like to achieve. These studies have shown it actually increases productivity during your day and makes you happier. The idea behind this is that organizing your bed spills over to the tasks a person does the rest of the day. When your bed is clean and made up, you sleep faster and better.
So, make your bed today and see if you can have this become a habit. Treat yourself to some new linens so your bed is updated and fresh.
