I’m grateful for the feeling of accomplishment after making my bed. My most productive days come after making my bed. When I start the day feeling accomplished, I set myself up for success the rest of the day. I’m already in the right head space to produce. I’ve closed the door on my time for sleep and ignited the fire of taking on the day. When my day is over, no matter how much else I did throughout the day, I set myself up for a beautiful transition back into rest. I feel accomplished as I mark the moment by going back into my chrysalis to absorb the lessons of the day and start fresh again tomorrow.
Today, I commit to making my bed and feeling good about it. I haven’t been in the habit of making my bed every single day. Working at home, I sometimes am writing in bed. I definitely notice the difference when I clearly define my lines of rest and productivity. I get so much more done on the days I make my bed and move my work to a different space.
Over twenty years ago I was at a time management program and the presenter talked about the importance of the routine of getting out of bed in the morning. He made clear points on how it sets a person’s productivity for the day. I took to heart much of what he said. Recently, the bed making concept resurfaced and a lightbulb went off as I looked back at the days when I made my bed and the days I didn’t. Conclusion, I need to make my bed!
Today, I’m re-committing to this simple task that makes me feel good instantly. One of the greatest gifts I’ve noticed by doing this is that my energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace while I’m doing it, afterwards, and when I come back to see it throughout the day. When I pull back the covers at the end of the day, I feel a peace that I don’t feel when I didn’t complete this task.
I love observing how my energy is affected by simple things throughout the day. I have to admit, I was pretty shocked how making the bed affected my energy. Becoming conscious of the things that align my energy with love, abundance, peace or fear, lack, and separation is such an incredible journey of discovery. I have learned so much about myself, others, and humanity as a whole.
