    The other thing is to spend real time on getting your room organized before you leave it.

    I guess if pulling the blanket up and covering your pillows so the dog doesn't lie on them and shed all over them counts as making your bed, then I make my bed.

    I don't think it's that important to do, though. I know that at the end of the day, I don't feel any better about climbing into a made bed versus an unmade one. Maybe I don't think about things like that. I don't know.

    The most important thing for me to get my day started on the right foot is breakfast. Which usually consists of a smoothie, but it's breakfast none the less.

    Thank you everyone for your feedback.

    I know that when I make the bed first thing helps me kick start my day. It is the first task I accomplish of the day, which starts the day in the right direction. It is the first opportunity for success. There are many resources that show how making your bed will reinforce that the small things do matter, and that if you can't do the little things right, it is difficult to do the big things right.

    According to http://ignitegym.com/, Hindu priest Dandapani speaks often of the value of rituals including making your bed in the morning. Western psychologists call these “cornerstone habits”: little habits that start a snowball effect and grow to larger accomplishments.

    Successful entrepreneur and author of "The Four Hour Work Week" and "The Four Hour Body", Tim Ferriss, discusses the importance of making your bed in the podcast "5 Morning Rituals That Help Me Win The Day".

    Making sure to have a healthy breakfast is important, meditation is important, starting the day with thanks is great too, but the very first thing we can do in the morning to achieve success, is make our beds.

    Just for the sake of arguing, http://www.today.com/home/scientists-keep-mites-away-leave-your-bed-unmade-every-day-t43496

    Making your bed might be good for your mental health and for building good habits, not so much for your physical health.

    Meh, I used to do that almost religiously, but now I don't. I neaten my bed before getting into it at night now. I found that neatening it is most important for feeling comfortable at night. I don't think it really matters when it's done... just my two cents.
