So much of the day involves tasks I don’t necessarily want to do. I’ve learned over the years the great trick of pairing something I love with something I don’t want to do in order to ease the boredom, dislike, or even discomfort of a task.
Pair exercise with walking with a friend.
Pair coffee and snacks I love with grading a stack of papers.
Pair great, new music with hard cleaning chores.
Pair talking on the phone with folding laundry.
It’s a simple reminder today about making harder work more fun.
