Tip Make Your Bed!

When you get out of bed for the day, take five minutes to make your bed, right away. Fold the blankets neatly, make hospital corners, fluff the pillows, the works. It only takes about 5 minutes tops, gives you a sense of accomplishment first thing, and makes your room look neater. A neater room always makes me feel more in control of my environment, and my depression. It also lessens the chances that I will crawl back into it to go bad to sleep. Crazy, I know, but it works! Give it a try!
