You've seen the day-in-the-life TikToks and, if you're anything like us, you've probably thought, "OMG. How are these people getting so much done in one day?" While we can't guarantee a perfect wardrobe or picturesque dinner views, making your bed in the morning can *definitely* get you in the mindset to get. things. done. Think of it this way: by making your bed, you're already crossing one thing off the to-do list. Once you get that done, there's nothing you *can't* do.

Another benefit? Taking a second to make your bed in the morning means devoting a little extra time to getting in a positive headspace for the day. If the first thing you do after your alarm goes off is make your bed, that gives your brain five much-needed minutes to wake up. Eventually, your bed-making ritual will start to feel like a morning meditation.


Consider this: you come home from soccer practice, shower and do your homework. After an episode (or two) of Ginny & Georgia, it's time to catch some serious ZZZs. Cozying up in a made bed sounds *so* much more rewarding than climbing under stale sheets. When you make your bed in the morning, you're giving your future self a little love, too. Plus, if you really commit, you can treat yourself to some cute bed decor. Bring on the throw pillows, stuffed animals and blankets, pls!
