How you do one thing is how you do all things. This means to the extent you pay attention to details, you’ll move throughout the day with ease or disconnect. The habits you create and perform regularly can help keep your mind and body connection strong. Starting with making your bed.
Making your bed isn’t just an act of keeping a tidy home, it’s an act that kick-starts your day and sends a subliminal message to your mind that you complete tasks. Making your bed, when added to other habits, creates a chain of events that motivate and keep you focused throughout the day.
Making your bed ends the sleep cycle and begins the new day. This is an excellent way to start the day with an accomplishment. It’s like checking off the very first to-do item on your list.
From there, you can keep building momentum by finishing other vital tasks that help keep the mind and body connection strong. Tasks like:
- Eating right
- Being on time
- And more
The simple task of making your bed might seem small and insignificant on its own but coupled with other small tasks, they cumulate together and complete a well-performed day ending with unmaking the bed and beginning the next sleep cycle.
There’s something to be said about people who make their beds
People who make their beds tend to be detail-oriented and value order. They are dependable and tend to finish what they begin. They appreciate the effort it takes to manage time so they can not only make their beds but also do many other habits that build on their success.
There are other habits similar to making the bed that helps keep the mind and body connection strong. Habits like:
- Brushing teeth before bedtime
- Clearing dishes from the sink after a meal
- Putting laundry away when it is finished
- Returning items to their proper places
These simple tasks and the habits they create are valuable in many ways. From increased stamina and follow-through to personal pride for a job well done. Doing what needs to be done rather than ignoring it or putting it off is always a very good thing.
Could making your bed be a habit you’d like to master? Would making your bed daily help you start your day off right and motivate you to follow through with other tasks? If making your bed isn’t part of your routine, consider adding the task to your daily routine.
