DON’T MAKE YOUR BED DAY IS ON DECEMBER 21, AND WE CAN’T WAIT.

Maybe you’re the kind who loves a freshly made bed each day. Or, you’re someone who can’t be bothered. Does it seem like a pointless chore? Can you never find the time? What’s great is that Don’t Make Your Bed Day can be for anyone. We know the benefits of making beds every morning. But did you know there’s a scientific case for keeping beds unmade? Either way, feel free to make the day your own.

500 A.D.
Origins Of ‘Hit The Hay’- Most people sleep on a bag stuffed with hay on the floor - hence, the term ‘hit the hay.’

1800s
Cotton Sheets Make An Appearance - The cotton gin revolutionizes cotton production and ushers in an era of cotton sheets.

2005
The Case For Unmade Beds - Researchers in England believe unmade beds help kill bacteria and grime.

2013
Messiness And Creativity - Studies by researchers at the University of Minnesota find strong correlations between unruly spaces and creativity.

HOW TO CELEBRATE DON’T MAKE YOUR BED DAY

Don’t make your bed - Enjoy the glorious mess that is your bed today. Crumpled sheets? Scattered pillows? Let them and yourself be.

Sleep in - Save yourself the trouble of making your bed by just staying in it. If it’s cold out, take today to snuggle in for some extra, much-needed snooze time.

Read books on messiness - Are you feeling guilty about a messy bed? Read books about how a little chaos is good for you. There are several reasons — both anecdotal and backed by research.

5 FACTS ABOUT BED SHEETS THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND

How authentic is your Egyptian cotton? Most of the Egyptian cotton bed sheets sold worldwide are fake.

Avoid certain labels - Don’t buy labels that say ‘easy care,’ ‘wrinkle-free,’ or ‘permanent press’ since these fabrics probably contain toxins.

Hemp leads the way - Hemp sheets work with body temperatures to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.

Bed sheets impact our health - The wrong fabric can cause infections, itchy skin, or induce sleepless nights.
Never go by thread count Instead, look at fiber length — the longer the thread, the better.
