Making the Harder Work Fun

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.
