How to Make Your Bed

Making your bed is a habit that will definitely contribute to your success in future. Simply because it is a repetitive chore that can easily be ignored. However, if you keep at it long enough, that mentality of being responsible will sip into your subconscious and come in handy when you need to achieve anything in life.

It all starts with knowing how to make the bed properly, and here’s how it’s done.

You will need:

  • Two bedsheets.

  • A mattress.

  • Two pillows (this is optional).

  • A blanket.

  • And, of course, a bed.

Method of making a bed


Start by covering the mattress completely with the first bedsheet. Make sure to tuck the ends tightly under the weight of the mattress. Next, align the mattress and second bedsheet together, then cover on top of the first sheet. Place the two pillows side by side on the mattress where your head would lie. Right at the edge of the pillows, fold the blanket and bed sheet. A rule of thumb is to fold once or twice to form a strip right after the pillows. Making a bed is all about covering the mattress nightly. There's probably a metaphor in there about your life.
