While making your bed is a task that is often looked over, there are many reasons why you should set aside a few minutes to do it. Keep reading to find out why completing this simple task each morning can improve your health and overall well-being.

Making Your Bed Establishes a Morning Routine 

I get it… when the alarm goes off in the morning it’s so tempting to hit the snooze button and cram in those five extra minutes of sleep. Instead, invest that extra time into developing a morning ritual, making your bed!  According to psychologytoday.com, it only takes the average person 66 days of consistent practice to develop a deep-seated habit. That means that in just about 2 months, making your bed will become second nature. If you have children, this is an excellent opportunity for you to model good habits for future generations to come.

In 2014 Admiral William H. McRaven gave a famous speech at a University of Texas commencement address. According to McRaven, while making your bed may seem trivial, it is a crucial step to start your day off right.

The thought is that one accomplishment will lead to another which can drastically improve your life. You can watch Admiral McRaven’s full speechhere.
