What Making Your Bed (Or Not!) Says About You

Walk me through your morning. Not the breakfast part—though personally, I’d love all the details; I hope there was cake—but the stuff before that. Was there an alarm clock in the mix? One you perhaps snoozed? Or did you wake naturally and hop out of bed like a spring (or fall) chicken?

The latter is more likely if you’re someone who makes your bed every day. At least, according to a recent survey of 2,000 Americans conducted by OnePoll and commissioned by sleep industry blog Sleepopolis. So say the survey results, bed-makers are more likely to be “morning people” who wake us sans alarm. They apparently nap for an average of 43 minutes daily, and are more likely to enjoy jazz music—as well as House Hunters, and romantic films.
