Next, she suggested making your bed every morning and always making sure the sink is clean.
Her final tip is to fold and put away all dry laundry straight away to prevent wrinkles.
Completing the small tasks everyday should only take a few minutes to do rather than letting the chores to stack up.
What are the benefits of making your bed first thing every day?
* It may improve your sleep quality. A poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation found that people who make their bed in the morning are 19 percent more likely to have a good night’s sleep, every night.
* Making your bed each morning could make you more productive. According to Naval Admiral William McRaven if you start your day by making your bed, that means you can go ahead with the rest of your day knowing that you’ve already accomplished something.
* Once the act of making your bed becomes a ritual, you may find that other good habits will naturally follow.
* We have good days, and sometimes we have ‘one of those days’. We never know when these kinds of days are going to take place, but you can gain comfort in knowing that your bed is at home already made, waiting for you to rest and relax in.

Despite the helpful advice, other social media users said with young children the house wouldn’t stay clean for very long.
‘But then the husband and kids wake up for snacks, find something or spill something for you to wake up too,’ one mum said.

A third added: ‘It’s so difficult to get into the habit of doing all this regularly. Still trying, wish me luck.’
