As a small business owner, you’re constantly looking for ways to save time. But there's one surprising chore you shouldn't skip out on: Making your bed first thing in the morning. 

Charles Duhigg explained it in his book, The Power of Habit, people who make their bed in the morning are happier and more successful than those who don’t. Moreover, 71 percent of bed makers consider themselves happy, while 62 percent of non-bed-makers are unhappy.

Bed makers are also more likely to like their jobs, own a home, exercise regularly, and feel well-rested, whereas non-bed-makers are more likely to hate their jobs, rent apartments, avoid the gym, and wake up tired. 

When you make your bed first thing in the morning, you start your day feeling organized and accomplished. So, take 30 seconds, perform this small task, and set yourself up for a day of success.
