Day 3: Air Out Your Bed
(and start a habit of doing it every morning!)
Fresh air impoverishes the doctor. - Danish Proverb
Some of the best medicines in the world are sunshine, fresh air, water, rest, nutritious food, and exercise.
Daily Mindset Mantra: Simple steps add up to big results.
While it can be daunting to try and do all the things, if we start with simple habits such as airing out our beds each morning, we can steadily and steer our lives to more fulfillment and ease. Starting your day with basic habits of self-care sets the tone for the rest of your day. While the rest of the day may end up in a handbasket wondering where it's going, accomplishing small tasks and making a habit of doing them gives you some success to lean on right out of the gate.
"...you can change what you have in your head, you can refresh what you’re thinking about, you can put some fresh air in your brain.” – Ernesto Bertarelli
Bonus task: While airing out your bed, open up the bedroom window for a couple minutes.
While you don't want to pay for heat pouring out the window, refreshing the air for just a couple minutes will improve your air quality. If you close the window before the temperature or the things in your room starts to drop, you'll barely notice the heat loss.
Some mornings when someone little climbs in bed with me, flopping the covers back with our legs marks the transition in a fun way allowing us to move into our day in a connected way.
What do you think? Do you air out your bed?
