Many children think making up their bed is pointless—they’re only going to climb back into it at the end of the day! Many adults feel this way, too. However, there are several benefits to making up your bed. Below are some reasons you should consider before you leave the house each day:
You Will Be More Productive
Have you ever wasted part of your day because you decided to get back in bed? If so, that is one reason for you to make up your bed as soon as you get out of it in the morning. You will be less likely to get back under the covers if it’s already made.
Keeping your bed made is an important part of keeping your room clean. Even if everything else in your room is neatly placed, an unmade bed will make your room look less inviting. Furthermore, the blankets and covers can hide the clutter littered under your bed.
An unmade bed not only makes you room look messy, but it also causes dust and dirt to build up underneath the covers. This can be a health hazard.
You Will Sleep Better At Night
As strange as it sounds, you may sleep better at night if you make your bed. The National Sleep Foundation conducted a study involving 1,500 randomly selected adults. The results of the study showed that 42 percent of the adults who made their bed reported getting a great night’s sleep most nights of the week and were 19 percent more likely to get a good night’s rest overall.
A well-made bed can give you room to complete other chores, such as folding clothes or paying bills. Additionally, if you are a parent, making your bed each day could encourage your children to do the same.
Bed making is a chore, but it does offer benefits. It helps keep your room looking neat, helps you sleep better at night and leaves you able to multitask and be more productive.
