Make Your Bed
I like habits that give me a little victory, and ones that improve my quality of life. That’s why I make my bed every single day, even if it’s a day I’m spending totally at home. Developing the habit of making your bed is the first thing that gives me that first victory of the day with just a few minutes’ work. Then, at the end of a long day, I get to come home to a nicely made bed, which is a much-appreciated perk after hours of teaching, reading, and writing.
