Habit #10 – Make your bed

….in fact… “make your bedroom”.

“We first make our habits, and then our habits make us.”
~John Dryden

Not every habit has to be complicated… this is an easy one, but it is a “keystone” habit.

Making your bed every morning is correlated with better productivity, a greater sense of well-being, and stronger skills at sticking with a budget. It’s not that a family meal or a tidy bed causes better grades or less frivolous spending. But somehow those initial shifts start chain reactions that help other good habits take hold.
~Charles Duhigg (The Power of Habit)

Small wins are exactly what they sound like, and are part of how keystone habits create widespread changes.
~Charles Duhigg (The Power of Habit)

Not only make your bed, but also keep your bedroom clean & decluttered. It’s a bedroom not a closet…

It’s a great feeling to enter a tidy bedroom when bunking in for the night.
