Taking “Chore” out of the House chores

Love not to like… Chores
Meta-description: Gearing for a face-off with those house chores and you don’t want to feel defeat or even think it will be turn in a very long day, why not snatch up some summery tunes to lighten up your day and pass the hours with only thoughts of sun, sand, and fun!

“House chores again!”

This has been the most common complaint made both by the young and the not-so-old individuals.

We can’t escape it.

It won’t go away if we don’t take action.  Instead, it will only pile up.

Weekend arrives or any free day away from school or from the office and we start to grumble. When we are faced with the household chores that takes in form of mountain high laundry, scrubbing the kitchen and the bathroom titles, changing out the bed sheets, vacuuming the carpet, clearing out the clutter, mowing the lawn to trimming the shrubs and others. Chores will always make us balk at the thought of doing any of them.

Let’s face it; it can be tedious, right?  Moreover, when things are tedious we normally put them off for a later date. Whether we like it or not, we still need to get them done to keep our homes order.  

Want to make a day filled with chores pass with ease?

Why not load your iPod with a play list filled with energy-boosting tunes to make you forget that you’re actually doing household chores.

Just make sure you still have an ear-out lest your mother or your significant other calls for help around the house.

The selection process

Choose music with vibrant beats and lively tunes. Song tracks that will not put to you asleep but will get you moving into the groove and chase away the lethargic thoughts of a doom-filled day stuck doing the chores. 

Infuse the activity with adrenaline-pumping vocals that will make you think of summer, sun, and sand.
