Make Your Bed Day!

When you wake up on September 11, make a point to make your bed because it is Make Your Bed Day! This unofficial holiday with unknown origins encourages people to make and tidy up their beds in the mornings.

Making up the bed or making the bed are expressions used to refer to the act of fixing the bed to look like it hasn't been slept in. This is usually done in the morning.

Sleep Better

Studies show that inculcating the habit of making beds every morning can increase productivity during the day and can make people happier. The idea is that the organization that goes into making beds can spill over to the tasks a person does during the rest of the day. The act also gives people some time before they start their day to meditate over about what they want to achieve during the day.

A clean and made up bed also helps people sleep faster and better. - TimeAndDate.com



Ahhh... I love, love, LOVE this made up holiday! A little known fact about yours truly: the entire house could be a mess. Like tornado, kids hyped-up on Halloween candy, partying like it's 1999 MESS... but I will make up my bed before retiring for the night. True story! My bedroom, but especially my beloved comfy bed, has always been my sanctuary. I prefer 100% raw linen sheets, fine goose down pillows, and a pleasant aroma. Being that I enjoy spending so much time in my room, I keep a continuous misting bottle of my favorite essential oil homemade air freshener on my nightstand for that extra luxurious experience. Here are some simple DIY recipes you may enjoy to freshen your space while making your bed in celebration of Make Your Bed Day! Hint-hint.
