Gretchen Ruben, author of the "The Happiness Project" believes that making your bed is a simple and effective way to stay happy. Keeping tidy and organized is the first step to a blissful life, a fact we're well aware of at the Lake & Porter You've Got MAIDS. So we thought we'd bring you a few tips on how to make your bed quickly and well, courtesy of the U.S. Military.

Firstly, you spread your sheet over the bed. Then comes the real trick to a good bed, the "Hospital Corner". For a "Hospital Corner", tuck the end of the sheet between the mattress and the box spring. *Don't bunch up the sheets*. Then go to the head of the bed and pull the other end taut. Now comes the actual hospital corner tuck. Go to an untucked corner and grab the sheet about 16" from the foot of the bed. Put a finger on top of the corner, lifting the sheet with the other hand, and tuck the lower drape under the mattress. Now you should have some extra sheet that you fold under the mattress. Repeat process at the other corners.
