Making my bed every day has changed my life. How?
This is a very easy way to affect positive change. In Charles Duhigg’s The Power of Habit, he states that people who make their bed every day are happier and more productive than people who don’t. It’s a great book for those who haven’t read it. And the bed-making thing is just one way that you can start small in forming good habits. Doing something for yourself every day – having a routine of activities that make you feel good – is a powerful force. What’s great is that anybody can do it. Making your bed takes at most a few minutes, but it affects the whole rest of your day.
