Make your bed to improve productivity

Even though commonly ignored, making your bed every morning has insurmountable impacts on an individual’s productivity. However, psychologically, it develops  personal growth and disciple constructs.

Sense of control and calmness.

Making the bed in the morning gives a person a sense of control and calmness. This is an adaptive behavior that can also be reflected in other chores and productive activities. For instance, at the workplace, one can put things in order, taking ownership of the responsibilities.

Improved focus.

People who make their beds every morning have better control of their immediate environment. Technically, such enhancements come with consistency in doing what is right, regardless of the cost. Making your bed instills focus in different levels of growth and productivity in every career. Achieving goals and dreams requires a strong focus on what is relevant for personal achievements.

Better sleep.

While many people may fail to see the relevance or the direct connection between sleep and making a bed, the effects are resounding. Sleeping on a well-made bed  increases the chances of sound sleep across the night, by relaxing the mind and inducing better sleep. It is one sleep therapy strategy that is very effective.

Stress reduction and relaxation.

After a hectic and chaotic day, landing on a  disorganized bed is the last thing you need. Spreading the sheets and making the bedroom tidy induces different advanced levels of responsibility and focus. Coming home to a well-made bed reduces stress that you may have carried from the workplace. Additionally, there is a relation and feeling of accomplishment when you get into your bedroom. The satisfaction is real and helps in improving productivity.
