A to Z Happiness Boosters to try - 13 - M

Saturday, February 27, 2016

This is one of those small things that I try to be sure I do every day. Not only does it make me feel good that this little chore is accomplished, it makes getting into bed at night much more pleasant.

Good Housekeeping April 2015 Page 114

"Make your Bed. doing one thing to enhance your sense of order is calming. It's all about creating more 'small wins' in your life, says Carter: 'They are really valuable for happiness.'"

Having my dishes done and my floors vacuumed fall into the 'feel good' category for me, too.

    I make my bed once a week. Yeah, I said it.. I know it take a few minutes, but I never make the time. I'll see how I do this week.

    Oh my, wish I was half as organized as you. Although I love it when the kitchen is clean and floors are vacuumed there just seems to be a major road block where this is concerned. Adult daughter calls me 'lazy' and 'a slob'. Sometimes I think it's because I've succumbed to her assessment of me (I never used to be like this). btw it's brutally cold today and there has been NO sunshine.

    YES! That is the first thing I do in the morning after getting showered and dressed. HELPS A LOT!

    For sure, I love climbing into bed at night when it's made. I vacuum everyday and have to wake up to a clean kitchen too! We are similar in that regard.
