Day One – Make Bed



Yes, you read right. Day One really is that simple: just make your bed.

It’s up to you how you want to do it but I’m a big fan of just pulling the blanket up and straightening the pillows. It doesn’t need to be perfect – just a pulled up blanket can make a huge difference to how tidy the room looks. But if you need to do hospital corners, perfectly smooth blankets and millions of cushions then go ahead! Whatever works for you.

Plus you get the satisfaction of having achieved something straight away!

So, that’s all for today. But remember to make your bed every day from now on.

Yes, I did make my bed today. Just a quick pull of the doona and a straightening of the pillows. Lily helped me make it but of course once it was made she jumped up and jumped and rolled all over it. Oh well, it still looks tidier than it did unmade!

  4. I’m looking forward to the next 19 challenges.Making the bed in the morning means you have achieved something in the day even if the rest of the day achieves only rest :)Yesterday I didn’t make the bed cause my husband slept in and I just didn’t get back into the room til late in the night then I was just too exhausted.
