Doing this one task that will take you less than 5 minutes to do each morning will help set your day up for success. No it’s not meditation or drinking a green smoothie (although those things are great as well) it’s something your parents have probably been telling you to do all your life…make your bed!

It’s a proven fact that people who make their beds every morning lead happier lives.

“If you make your bed every morning you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another.

By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter.”

– Naval Adm. William McRaven

So why don’t you start to implement this habit that many successful people such as Lewis Howes, Oprah and Tony Robbins (yes even people who can afford to have someone make their bed for them still do it themselves) do every day and see if you start to see a change in your day.
