To make my bed:

it’s become important for me to have a structured morning, a routine, performing a few rituals to begin my day in what feels like a proper order. Mostly, it’s still loose and relaxed, no demands made, and it’s all things that seem to benefit me in what I feel are meaningful ways. Of course the first thing I do is make my bed, not perfectly so, and honestly I ignored this for years even as I read testaments to this one…
