NEW YORK – People who make their beds every day are generally cleaner, healthier, more outgoing and have better sleep quality than those who leave the duvet and sheets in a heap, according to a recent study.
Researchers commissioned by bedding experts Sleepopolis interviewed 2,000 adults and discovered that how neat we are with our beds reveals a lot about our personality.
For example, the survey found that a large proportion of people who don’t make their beds in the morning like to watch Seinfeld episodes and comedy movies, listen to rock music, are night owls, and listen to their alarms before they get up. . Those with a sloppy bed are also more likely to keep a job in business and financial fields, and their personalities are usually sarcastic, moody, shy and curious.
On the other hand, those who make their beds are more morning people, work in health or technology, listen to jazz music, enjoy House Hunters episodes and romantic movies, and wake up without an alarm. They are described as more adventurous, confident, social and maintenance friendly.
Bed makers were also more likely to exercise regularly, follow a healthy diet and consider themselves clean. They also enjoy more benefits in the bedroom, having sex on average three times a week, while those who don’t make their beds have sex twice a week.
Activity level seems to be a factor. Those who said they make their bed in the morning were 10 percent more likely to say that they like to cook. People who were no longer inclined to watch television or films.
“While it is interesting to investigate the differences between people who make their bed and those who don’t, it turned out to be important to get a good night’s sleep,” says Logan Block, the director of content at Sleepopolis in a statement. “Results point to the sleep loss epidemic that Americans are facing – sleep is incredibly important for our mental and physical health, but the average American only gets six and a half hours a night. There are many simple solutions to get more sleep, like in the past go to bed and be in a comfortable environment conducive to sleep. “
For those who make their bed every day, 42% say that their romantic partner lets them do it. A third of the respondents say that not making someone’s bed is a turn away from a potential partner.
Of the more bizarre findings, people who don’t make their beds have previously violated a promise, perhaps explaining why they are less likely to have three good friends.
Bed makers would rather believe in ghosts.
And if you snore, chances are that you will keep your bed unmade. But when you make your bed, you are more prone to sleepwalking.
The research was conducted by market research agency OnePoll in August and September 2018.
