I make my bed. Every morning.
A habit that was definitely instilled during formative years growing up, it’s just something I can’t NOT do. Recently though, it occurred to me that I also like coming home, and particularly after being away for several days but just as much after a long day at work, to an apartment that is in perfect order. No dishes in the sink, no shoes or clothes strewn about the bedroom, and certainly nothing out of place in the living room.
And so, I’ve been consciously cleaning up after myself everyday since being back from vacation. It’s a small task that’s helped me feel just a tad more zen everyday when life living in the city (and not on a sun soaked beach) can feel anything but orderly …
Do you keep your space tidy too?
