Had your 10 minutes of extra sleep? Good. Now that you're awake, the first thing you should do is make your bed. According to several studies, people who make their beds are happier and more productive than those who don't. They're also more likely to exercise regularly, get more sleep, and find fulfillment at work.

If this is what you get for putting away your blanket, fluffing your pillows, and smoothing the creases on your bedsheet, then it's not a bad idea to turn bed making into a habit.

Besides, if you make your bed every morning, you'll also have accomplished your first task of the day, so says Naval Admiral William McRaven in his commencement speech at the University of Texas in the US. "It will give you a small sense of pride and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another."

A bonus: it's also conducive to a stress-free life. Just ask de-cluttering guru Marie Kondo!
