Do you love starting the day off with a carefully made bed? Sometimes if I get up late, this is the first task I throw out the window. It’s a tiny defeat that I don’t like to have right off the bat. But, what if I told you that I figured out how to make a bed in 60 seconds flat?!
Now somedays I don’t even feel like I have an extra 60 seconds. But, most days I really have no excuse to not invest a measly one minute towards a more tidy room.
A while back, I was revamping my morning routine, which is one my classes in my Finding Time to Hold Dearly course. Considering not even including bed making in my morning routine, I searched online for a faster way to get it done.
It seems that people don’t really know how to do this, I saw a few youtube videos. But, they were just hurrying when they made their beds, I didn’t see anything super efficient.
Then, I stumbled upon an old forum online. One person was saying that bed making is OCD and you shouldn’t start because you will go crazy and end up in a mental institution. I’m not joking! Can you even believe that?
I feel like a well made bed says to the world and to myself that the day has started and things are in order. The whole room looks better all day and a well made bed is so much more comfortable to crawl into at night. So, obviously, I am from the camp that would like to find a way to make a bed in 60 seconds.
Finally, I dug around long enough in that forum to find some old military advice. And the best part is, it really works!
How to Make a Bed in 60 Seconds
Here is my messy bed. . .
- First, while you are still in bed, sit up and throw the pillows onto the floor. Evenly distribute them, I have six, so I toss three on each side of the bed.
- Now, sit in the middle of the bed with legs outstretched. Pull all the covers up as high as you can and slide out one side.
- Finally, starting on one side, walk all the way around the bed ONE TIME. As you work your way around, straighten the covers, tuck in the sheets, replace the pillows, etc. until you reach the other side.
TA DA!! There, that’s better.
No more excuses.;)
