Making the Bed ~

How to Get in the Habit of Making your Bed
In addition to knowing how to make your bed, you need to overcome the obstacle of not really wanting to make your bed. It’s just something that most people don’t want to take the time and energy to do in the morning. Here are some steps for getting used to making your bed each day:

. Make it a habit. The first thing that you need to do is to establish a ritual that you use for always making your bed. Perhaps you want to do it as soon as you first wake up. Or maybe it’s something that you’ll do after you’ve showered. Find a time that works for you and make that “bed making time” every single day.

. No, making your bed doesn’t take very long. But the few moments it takes can be used to do something that’ll get your day off to a good start.

. End the bed-making with something that’s going to be nice to come home to. Yes, you like just getting into a well-made bed. But you’d like making it even more if you gave yourself a gift every day. After the bed is made, place a flower from your garden on it. Or find a book on your bookshelf that you’d like to read a passage of that night. Or write down a favorite quote and leave it there for yourself when you get back. You’ll begin to look forward to making your bed in no time at all.

. Hubby coming home to a well-made bed is a treat that you should offer him. And if you think of it in the right way, making the bed can be a treat to you as well.

. Train the children to make their beds every morning as well. Be sure you are a good example for them.

. Teen agers need to make their beds every morning as well. This is not a time to get sloppy. Remember the Army makes young people do it, so should you.

. Remember to inspect what you expect. Don’t settle for a job half done. Go for excellence !!!!!
