Make your bed.
Every time I wake up in the morning and make my bed immediately after I rise, I find that I feel a sense of accomplishment. It’s such a small thing, but it’s just the right small thing I need to kick my butt into gear.
If I can make my bed, then I can brush my teeth. If I can brush my teeth, I can wash my face. If I can wash my face, I can take a shower, make a healthy breakfast, lay out my plans for the rest of the day, write those reviews I have been avoiding, publish those posts in my drafts section, and slowly succeed in the little goals I had set out to do that day.
Today I am sitting here with a hefty To-Do List and this post is on it. And though I know I might not be able to achieve every single goal on this list for today, at least I know I’ve got one thing done and I still have the motivation to get most of it done. And that’s all thanks to my neatly made bed with the yellow and grey comforter and floral throw pillows I never use.
So, make your bed and get going! There’s things to do!
