Warning eat your breakfast before reading this post :)

I do like my bed made in the morning.  For me at least, it takes just a few minutes, and I like to look at at least one thing that’s done during my day.    I read this information before, and I thought I would share it with you in case you haven’t seen it.  It has made my sometimes wait to make my bed or if I don’t get around to it at least I can feel good about not making it :)

This info was from here :

House dust mite (pretty huh?)

The warm, damp conditions created in an occupied bed are ideal for the creatures, but they are less likely to thrive when moisture is in shorter supply.

Failing to make your bed in the morning may actually help keep you healthy, scientists believe.

Research suggests that while an unmade bed may look scruffy it is also unappealing to house dust mites thought to cause asthma and other allergies.

A Kingston University study discovered the bugs cannot survive in the warm, dry conditions found in an unmade bed.

The average bed could be home to up to 1.5 million house dust mites.

The bugs, which are less than a millimetre long, feed on scales of human skin and produce allergens which are easily inhaled during sleep.

The warm, damp conditions created in an occupied bed are ideal for the creatures, but they are less likely to thrive when moisture is in shorter supply.

So go ahead and leave your bed unmade and if you already do you just have an excuse to do so.

Have an unmade day!
