How I did it: I have read that is takes 21 days to make something habitual ,in other resources 60 days was the number . so just to be on the safe side i waited 83 days to cross this off my list .
I started it by scheduling making my bed after an activity that i did every day at a specific time ( for me that was drinking coffee in the morning ) at first it needed some effort .After the first week or so it started to become easier and by the end of a month something would feel wrong if my bed wasn't made . After that i sandwiched making my bed between two already established habits ( making my coffee and drinking it while surfing the net ) that made it even more automatic and today i woke up made my coffee then started making my bed without thing about it .

How I did it: I think in most cases, it is much nicer to enter a bedroom in which the bed is made, and that's what adults do anyways, so when I turned 18 I decided to make my bed every morning - yayyy.
How I did it: I created my schedule so I don't have to rush out of the house in the morning. That way I have time to take a few moments and make my bed. If your morning is luxurious and allows you to prepare for your day, everything will go better the rest of the day.
It is easier to prepare for the day if you get a good night's sleep the night before, so try doing that as well. This means no staying up late watching TV, and if you have pets (or I assume kids) making sure they are taken care of before you go to sleep. Read how I did it… 19 months ago
How I did it: I put a habit chart on my wall, right above my desk, and made a point to tick off the "make the bed" box every day. I also asked my boyfriend, if he got up after me, to make the bed if he could, so that both of us would get into the habit. It wasn't hard because my desk is in the same room as my bed, but I'd often smooth over the bed as soon as I got up anyway, and make it when I walked past later in the day.
I can consider this done. it’s so habitual now, so necessary for me to feel that the house is tidy, that I do it almost as soon as I get up, and if I don’t, Jeremy does. so I consider this done.

I kept this up for a while, but had a few down days where I just didn’t care. I’m glad it’s on my habit list, because it means that if I don’t do it I get the nagging feeling I haven’t done something (because I haven’t!), which is good. And it does make me feel so much better when it’s done! 23 months ago
I guess it’s only been about three weeks, but I really feel this is a habit. My desk is next to the bed, so often I’ll just want to make it look nice and feel that my head is clear. I only missed two days making the bed, both of which I was away – although it’s not always done in the morning, it does get done, and it’s much nicer to have a tidy bed and bed area to look at. 23 months ago
This goal is coming along well – in almost a month, there have been only two days that I haven’t made the bed, one being when I wasn’t home. It’s near automatic now to tidy up the bed once J and I have gotten up, and it goes with hanging up clothes, putting dirty ones in the washing machine and tidying the bedroom. All this has just sort of naturally evolved from making the bed, and having my desk next to the bed makes it easier. The tidy bed makes the room feel more spacious and comfortable, and tidiness makes it easier to concentrate on whatever I’m doing. 23 months ago
I’ve been doing really well at this. it’s really simple to just pull the covers up to the pillows and smooth everything over, and even if I need to remake the bed after a restless night then I feel like the whole room looks better because of the made bed. since it’s a double, it takes up a fair bit of room, and ensuring it’s neat and tidy is really nice.
I often use earplugs to help me sleep, have a hanky nearby, and read, and I’ve found that instead of cluttering around the bed/floor/windowsill, I can simply tuck these things inside my pillow. I also have asthma triggered by my cats (who sleep on my pillow), so I have a ventolin tucked in too. because it’s all on the underside of pillow inside the slip, you can’t see it, but I can reach them all easily without there being any mess. 1 year ago
