Doing the same chores at home can be very repetitive and because of that, chores can start to be less enjoyable. One way to combat this is to put creativity in the tasks, the willingness to learn new things, and the desire to improve. For example, finding an inexpensive way to improve the back porch with a homemade fountain will add an accomplishment and you will enjoy your time there after the hard work.
The next task in this video is to make a Hungarian csalamade which is a summer salad mix that is slightly fermented (recipe in the video). The more colorful veggies you can gather, the better the taste and it gives me joy to buy colorful veggies and admire how they look. Sometimes I like to change it up a little and work at the dining table as I’m cutting the vegetables.
Changing the scenery can help to break up the repetitiveness. That’s why I like to fold on the ironing board as well. It helps with the folding as I can adjust the height and it’s not slippery as I fold the twisted shirts. I can also fold anywhere and that includes sometimes outside on the deck! 🙂
Cooking and trying new flavors, organizing a different way, and making homemade detergent is also an area we can add creativity to make it more interesting. There are so many options these days to get ideas from online but even if you just try to work with what you have at home, it can be rewarding! Look for new ways to get the chores done, aim for improving, create an environment that is enjoyable for you with having a great music on or sipping on a tea! Be in the present as you do the chores – it will be very grounding and help you appreciate what you have.
