This week’s Escape Plan challenge (aka our Tip of the Week), is #30: Funjection Device. Figure out a way to bring some fun into a dreaded task today.
“My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first one being — hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint.” -Erma Bombeck
Amen, Erma. Thank goodness for wrinkle release spray!
My least favorite chore (besides grocery shopping) is laundry. I shudder to even think about it and inevitably end up procrastinating until I have one lonely pair of unmentionables left. This challenge will help you get beyond the dread by adding a little fun to the routine. It’s a fact that most adults are starved for silliness.
Here are a few ideas to get you rolling…
- Try shoveling to some tunes.
- Wear a goofy hat grocery shopping and enjoy the way you wake up the other zombies, I mean shoppers.
- Listen to the Escape Adulthood Podcast Show on your commute!
- Tape something to the end of your pen as you do your bills. Some ideas could be a flower, a little buddy like Pokey, or even and small picture of something that makes you smile.
So, what are your dreaded tasks?
