I get the most exercise in the bedroom!

According to Prevention.com men burn 100 calories and women burn 69 calories during 25 minutes of sheet action. The longer you go at it the more calories - well gee it isn't rocket science after all is it! Now, how I burn calories int he bedroom has more to do with making the bed not what happens in the bed. When we moved up from a queen to a king bed it was for comfort - and to get the 'snoring machine' a little further from me LOL! What I didn't think about was the time and energy it would take to make a king bed. It requires a lot of walking back and forth from one side to the other. I am not a perfectionist, but I also like the bed to look good when it's made! I love the feel of fresh clean sheets and if I had a twin size bed I would consider changing sheets every few days, but not so with a king, once a week is sufficient. If you have a king size bed how long does it take you to change the sheets and get the bed back to looking nice?

We have a king size bed and I change the sheets once a week. Our bed has a headboard, but also a footboard and this slow down the process a bit, not to mention that it's a real pain! It takes 12 to 15 minutes, I am not a perfectionist, but it must look good.

I have my home helper change my double bed. It takes about 5 minutes to fix. I wash it once a week before she comes and she does a great job! I don't fix my bed daily though my mom was big on fixing her bed daily until she got sick

I have a king. I never gave it up after my divorce. I was used to the size and still am. It takes me a good 15 minutes to change and make the bed. I have thought about a smaller bed, being only one person, but I'm a tosser and wouldn't have the room I need to sleep in.

My bed is a queen so it's not that difficult to change the sheets. It's a bit more difficult in winter when it's got blankets, comforter etc rather than the summer when I just keep sheets and a lightweight spread on it. That's a pretty comforter and I love the brown colors

I have a king size bed all to myself , It was part of an inheritance , I got a house filled with nice furniture back in 2015. I have always changed my sheets once a week no matter what size bed. And yes I walk around the bed more, when I had a full size I could almost just reach across. I am about to buy a new mattress for this bed, my back has began to hurt.

I wish I had a king sized bed but our headboard will not accommodate it. We have a queen and I do walk back and forth around the bed when making it, especially when putting on fresh sheets. As for the other kind of between the sheet activity, I find it hard to believe that very much is burned.
Reminded me of my Housekeeping training that I attended last year. We are given 5 minutes to change bedsheets (3 linens ) for queen size beds and two pillows. And yes, changing linens, arranging bedsheets is indeed a good exercise.
