If you are alive and on Instagram in 2015 chances are you have been impacted by a hashtag holiday. Maybe you were lovingly (or passive aggressively) tagged on #nationalbestfriendday. Maybe you felt the extreme guilt only your family can elicit when you missed #nationalsiblingsday. Or, if you're anything like us, maybe you were endlessly tormented by the concurrence of bathing suit season and #nationaldonutday, #nationalwaffleday, and #nationalicecreamday. 

But even in the company of all these ill-fated observances, Make Your Bed Week has got some nerve. Not only is it snagging a whole seven days of glorification, it's only celebratory activity is literally a chore. (P.S. It started yesterday, so you've already messed up.) Luckily, Crane & Canopy, makers of incredibly stylish and affordable direct-to-consumer bedding, have found a way to turn this seemingly solemn occasion into a thing of beauty—a pretty bed and the best night's sleep you've ever had. 

5 Ways to Build a Better Bed

1. Start with a quality mattress. Companies like Casper or Tuft & Needle offer you high-quality mattresses, complete with breathable cotton mattress pads! Foundation complete.

3. Pile on the pillows. Consider your favorite sleeping position when choosing where to rest your head. Pillows designed for stomach sleepers are softest and flattest, the ones for side sleepers are loftiest and firmest, and back sleepers get texture and height in-between. These differences make sure each sleepers' spine is in proper alignment at night.

4. Linen Spray goes a very long way. This instantly freshens the bedding and is a wonderful unexpected touch to greet you at bedtime. If you want crisp, clean sheets for the in between washing days, linen spray has you covered.

5. Understand your sleep patterns. Sense is the first system for understanding your sleep, monitors the surroundings in your bedroom and reinvents the alarm, so you can sleep smarter.
