IntroductionDo you get up in the morning like me, thinking about breakfast and the day ahead? If you do, perhaps making your bed is a low priority. My morning routine consists of having a shower, getting dressed and making breakfast, which I have at the computer while I check my emails, this website and the news. By then, my bed is the last thing on my mind! So the bedsheets get left where they were when I got up, and they'll be like that when I go to bed. Apparently, this isn't very good, and an inspiring speech by an ex Admiral in the US Seals explains why.
