Making your bed is a metaphor for daily decisions, daily routines that transform our lives.Dr. Michael Brown
- When our rooms are cluttered, it is a sign that our minds are probably cluttered too.
- Making a bed monthly requires more time and energy than making a bed daily.
- Without daily routines, we are at risk for living life based only on our momentary desires.
- A bed well-made sets the stage for a morning well-spent, and a morning well-spent sets the stage for a day well-lived.
- Making our beds helps us to organize our minds, our days, and our lives.
- Small choices matter because they are springboards for big choices.
- Make your bed every day for 21 days in order to create a habit.
- Control the small things in your life when you feel overwhelmed by the big things.
- Take responsibility for the organization of your life, regardless of your natural tendencies or personality traits.
