Choosing Happiness Tip #4 is here!! Something so simple, your mom has told you to do it for years!
SHE was RIGHT!! It can make you feel a little less stressed, and a bit happier when you see it.
What is it is you ask?
MAKE YOUR BED!
That is it? Really? YES! Think about it, there a few things that can make or break a room. I think a clean made bed is one of them. I know with my kids, there can be toys strewn about the floor, and clothes that need put away and if the bed is made, I feel better and it seems not quite so messy, how ever, if you have a room with the floor cleaned up and the bed a big mess, it still seems messy even a bit messier than what it really is.
The bed is often the focal point of the room. What a simple way to utilize the focal point for good!
When I make my bed in the morning, every time I walk in the room, I love it, I notice that it is clean and made. I have a confession to make. My in laws are staying with us for awhile. While they are here, we have given them the master bedroom, so we are in a little den. There is no closet, and it is quite small. We just thought with 8 kids running around, the Master Suite would be most comfortable for them. While we have been in the den, making the bed has been even more a mood changer!
Because the room is small, having the bed made, even with a pile of laundry to put away on the floor, the room feels so much more relaxing.
Look at the difference in how you feel with these pictures!
This whole series is little things that can help you be happier! This one really is so easy! My kids are getting better at it, even Charli who is four, can make her bed. It is not perfect. But it is made! She did pretty good with her bed (the pink and green one)
I can not believe how wrinkled my bed is! I have been saving that comforter for awhile for us to get back to our room, I finally decided to just pull it out! Excuse the wrinkles! I have a friend that irons her sheets, again I will keep it real, 8 kids….. I steam clothes, and not my blankets! I may have to retake that picture if it bugs me enough…. it may…
