Lifehacks: How and Why to Make Your Bed Daily

Mornings can be chaotic, where you’re rushing to get ready for work, school, or whatever you have planned for the day. Making the bed might seem like a small task, but when you’re trying to squeeze in breakfast, showering, and getting dressed, it can easily fall down the priority list.

Let’s be real here. Sometimes we are just lazy, and making the bed requires a bit of effort. Some folks might prefer to hit the snooze button a few more times and save those precious minutes of sleep instead of folding blankets.

We’ve all been there!

But, if you’d like to break the cycle and start fresh? Well, all you need is to invest 3 minutes every morning to start your day off on a good note.

Just make your bed! Every. Single. Day.

3 Benefits of Making Your Bed Daily

  • It creates a sense of accomplishment and control over your day, right from the start.
  • Creates order and calmness in your bedroom, which reduces stress and anxiety.
  • A cleaner and more organised living space will have a positive effect on your mood and motivation.

Remember that feeling when you’re checking into a hotel room? It feels so damn good because the room is a pristine and immaculate space, offering a sense of cleanliness and relaxation.

And you deserve that when you’re at home too!

How to Make Your Bed in 3 Minutes

  1. Arrange your pillows, cushions, and bolsters.
  2. Fold your covers e.g. blanket, comforter or duvet.
  3. Smoothen out any wrinkles on your bedding (bedsheet, pillowcases, covers) by tugging on them.

It doesn’t matter if your bed is made perfectly or not. Just as long as it’s made.

Bedding Laundry Hacks

💡Toss your bedding with your clothes into the washing. We don’t care whether clothes must be washed separately from bedding, as long as they all get cleaned!
💡Leave your bed bare while your bedding is being washed and dried. Once your bedding is dry, immediately replace them on your bed.
💡You’ll get freshly laundered bedding AND don’t have to fold anything! Win liao!

How to Choose Your Bedding

Choose bedding colours that complement the style and atmosphere you want to create in your bedroom.

  • For a serene and calming environment, go for cool tones like deep blues or soft neutrals (such as taupe, white, ivory, beige, and grey)
  • If you prefer a cozy and warm feel, earthy tones like browns or deep oranges can create a comforting atmosphere.

    💡Lighting plays a huge part too! Cut out harsh, white lighting (seriously, it just reminds us too much of the office) and use soft warm lighting instead. There’s a reason why hotels and spas use them.
