So, for the past two weeks I’ve been bed-hopping more than I did the summer when I was 19 years old, working at Victoria’s Secret, and taking dating advice from gay men. I’m really excited to get home to my own bed, with its nice clean sheets.
Clean sheets are one of life’s greatest pleasures. In college and living in NYC without laundry in my building, I got really bad about changing them regularly. But now I’m fully committed and I love it!
I guess before I’d just sort of forget? But now I take them off my bed in the morning when I get up on the day of my long runs. This means that I am sure to do them once a week, and also, that when my body is tired the day of a long run, I am rewarded with crisp, perfect sheets!
So, start a ritual and change your sheets this weekend too. Not only will it keep bacteria from building up in there — seriously, if you can’t do your full set of sheets, at least do your pillowcase — but it will also help you sleep better! I have no scientific proof to back this, but I always sleep like a baby when my bed has clean sheets on it. I love to travel, but I’m more excited than anything to sleep in my own bed tomorrow night!
