NATIONAL MAKE YOUR BED DAY
National Make Your Bed Day is observed annually on September 11th.
Do you want to get a better night’s sleep? According to the National Sleep Foundation, making your bed can help improve your sleep by reducing the amount of tossing, turning and restlessness which in return, can be good for your health.
A great night’s sleep can depend on the comfort you feel in your bedroom environment. – National Sleep Foundation
At a Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program, participants learn that the sleep environment is a major component to a restful night’s sleep. In a survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, people who make their bed daily more often have a better night’s sleep. Fresh sheets, dark and cool rooms, and comfortable mattresses and pillows also play a factor in mastering sleep comfort.
Besides the comfort level, the visual appeal of a well-made bed invites us to slumber. Almost like a blank canvas draws an artist to paint, a comfortably made bed calls to us. Being faced with crumpled sheets and twisted blankets at the end of a long day causes frustration. Very little is required of us when our bed is made. When we’re tired, we ask for no more demands from the day, least of all from our bed.
