Is making your bed important??? Heck yeah, it is and I’ll tell you why. Better yet, watch the video below, it is one of the most motivating and inspirational speeches I’ve ever heard. If you can, watch the whole 20 minutes, if not, at least get to the part about making your bed which can be found in the first 6 minutes. Really…it is worth listening to.
Here’s the video of the University of Texas at Austin 2014 Commencement Speech by

The only thing I still struggle with is folding the fitted sheet, here’s yet another video from Crane and Canopy to help with the technical difficulties of this chore…
I think I’m going to have to practice that one, but it does seem better than the technique my mom taught me that I never quite mastered.
Hope this is helpful and motivating.
Have a great week.
