Taking The Bore Out Of Your Chores



(Image Source)

It’s very rare to find someone with a passion for housework, gardening, or the other chores you’ll find around a modern home. Instead, these sorts of jobs are often some of the lowest on the list of things you’d like to be doing, but highest on the list of things which have to be done. Of course, though, it doesn’t have to be this way. With the right time and effort, it should be nice and easy to turn your chores from boring into something you don’t even think about, and this post is here to help you out. It will be exploring some of the best ways to achieve this sort of goal, while also giving you some ideas to try for yourself.

Make A Game
Like most creatures, humans like to play and will thrive when rewarded for their work. Of course, you don’t have to give yourself treats for doing the cleaning, but you could find some ways to make the job itself more fun. By giving yourself targets, like fastest mopping time or shiniest windows, you’ll motivate yourself without even realising it. As time goes on, you will be able to give yourself more and more challenges, eventually making all of your jobs into their own little games. This sort of approach may seem a little childish, but the results will speak for themselves.  Not to mention it works great when your children are helping with chores as you can challenge them to see who has the fastest time.  Maybe you could keep a chart for them.

Share The Load
With the price of modern housing, it’s quite unlikely that you live by yourself. This means that there will be other people around with the power to help you with the household chores, and you can enlist their help to make it a lot easier for yourself. The best way to do this will be through a strict rotation chart which lets everyone know exactly what they will have to do. Of course, you can’t expect the kids to do the same amount as the adults, but they can still do a little bit to help prevent the rising tide you’re having to deal with.

Having Someone Else Do It
Thankfully, even if you hate all of this work, there are still ways to make it easier for you, and this final one should be able to cover everything. If you want to move, but don’t want to deal with the stress, a moving company should be enough to take things out of your hands. Likewise, if your garden is starting to look bad, you could consider hiring someone to come and take care of it for you. Nowadays, more and more people are charging fair rates for this sort of work, and this is only making it easier to let someone else do the hard work.  Often young teens are looking for a way to make money, so consider hiring a neighbors child.

Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start working towards making your chores more fun. A lot of people struggle to keep this part of life under control, especially as life is getting busy and children are hitting the scene. Of course, though, with the right effort, you should be able to make each chore disappear.
