How often do you make your bed? If you're like many people, the answer is “Not as often as I should.” But what if you discovered that making your bed may actually help you lose weight? The truth is actually much stranger than that.

Studies have shown that making the bed is what's known as a “cornerstone habit.” Put simply, that means that it's a seemingly small thing you can change that could have a ripple effect and impact many other aspects of your life. Researchers have noted that people who make their bed every day are better at budgeting, more likely to exercise, and report higher levels of happiness than those who don't make their bed.
