Staying motivated can be tricky. There are however, simple methods to improve daily motivation. One method, and experts agree, is making your bed daily. Making your bed can drastically improve not only your motivation but also, your mental health. Imagine that. Really? A three minute task can increase motivation and lower stress? You should be saying, “sign me up.”
We’ve all been there–dragging ourselves out of bed on a dreary Monday morning. The last thing we want to do is make our bed. It seems silly right? To make our bed only to unmake it to sleep. It can seem pointless, but it’s not.
When you make your bed you are kick starting your mind and giving yourself momentum for the day. That is, when you wake up and make your bed, you’ve already accomplished something within the first five minutes of the day. So, it sets the standard for the rest of the day.
I’ve worked with clients in the past on this task and it drastically improved their motivation & stress levels.
See for yourself how a simple task, like making your bed can have a huge impact. Try it for seven days!
