Recently I re-visited a post on Sarah Wilson’s blog about happiness – the one where she talks to Gretchen Rubin of The Happiness Project. In the post Sarah asks Gretchen if she could give one little ‘sure-fire’ trick for happiness.
Make your bed every day.
Sounds too simple doesn’t it? Well not to me. I reckon that sometimes it is the simplest and littlest things that can make all the difference. Gretchen mentioned that this tip caused the greatest amount of discussion and dialogue between her followers but I can see what she is getting at.
IMHO making your bed in the morning provides the perfect bookends for your day. You leave your bedroom in a state of order in the morning … and after a day of chaos (does anyone out there have a life that isn’t chaos?!) you return to … a state of order.
How nice is that?
I haven’t been making my bed lately, but this week I have started to do it. Every day.
Do you already make your bed every day?
