TODAY’S CHALLENGE

Make your bed!

  • It’s really that simple—take 1-2 minutes each morning to make your bed, no excuses!

 

WHY MAKE YOUR BED?

  1. How you do anything is how you do everything
  • Your life is really a reflection of the cumulative habits that you have
  • Remember: first you create your habits and then your habits will create you back—you might be meditating, journaling, working out, eating well and all of a sudden that will create your life back
  • One of the most important habits to get good at is creating new habits—people want to create a new result in their life, but insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting life to change
  • Little things mean a lot! Making your bed only takes 1-2 minutes, but make it with excellence, because how you do that is how you’re going to do everything else throughout your day
  • Success breeds success—this is called the science of momentum. If you accomplish something and have a big win first thing in the morning, you can build on that

 

  1. Your external world is a reflection of your internal world
  • On the Kwik Brain podcast, we talk about the 10 Keys to Unlock Optimal Brain Health
  • It’s also important to have a clean and tidy external environment: when your environment is clean you have less stress and more clarity of thought
  • If you make your bed you train yourself to have control over your environment each day
  • You create your environment and your environment will influence you in return

 

  1. It bookends your day with success
  • If you make your bed each day with excellence, you can come home to a freshly made bed which will feel good
  • When you finish your day you can come back to success and know you created that momentum—it serves a reminder of the success you created in the morning with the power of habit
  • By making your bed you can start and finish every single day with success!
