 TIP #83
Turn a chore into an experience.

















No matter how dirty or menial the task, invest yourself in 
the sensations; get in sync with its rhythms and repetitions.  

Relieve the task of expectations. Gently turn obligation to 
intention, and welcome it into your beautiful life.

That's a beautiful way to turn a task into something fun and enjoyable. Just do it and relish in the activity as opposed to thinking, "I hate this task" or "When will this be over."

I have some tasks needed to be done this weekend. I will try to take your words to heart as I clean. Maybe even dance the vacuum...but hopefully not get tangled in its chore.

Thanks for this Tip #83:~)

Thanks, Sara -- Now that you mention it, vacuuming sucks :-P Seriously, I love the image of you and the new dance craze, the vacuum. Enjoy!

Hi Jeff, yes, if we can turn the menial into meaningful, then we can do meaningful activities our whole life. No matter how big or small the project. Thanks for the reminder to be mindful for the most mundane activities in our life.

Hello, milla -- thanks for your comment and for your support. Yes, isn't it true how many things in life turn out to be pretty much what we expect them to be?
It's wonderful having another fan from Iceland! I hope you'll come back to One Man's WOnder now and again, and that you'll share the link with others.
Are you a blogger?
