No matter how old you get, one thing never changes: Chores are no fun. In fact, they might be even less fun when you're an adult, because as a kid at least there was pudding to look forward to after.Dusting
We’ve all learned we should pick our battles, and this is one you just can’t win. It’s you against the universe – literally. Dusting every day is a fight against the future waged on the leftovers of the past. You have better things to do with your life!Try not dusting for a few days and see how you feel. You’ll get more bang for your buck and you can use the time you saved to ... well … not dust.Picking Up
“Pick up after yourself!” The shrill command rings in our ears long after we fly the coop and settle into our own nests. It’s just a good thing to do. Some say it builds character, and others say cleanliness is a checked box on the ticket to paradise in the hereafter.Maybe, but it’s also a pain in the neck and by no means compulsory. Sometimes we all need an alibi to give to the Clean Police.Making Your Bed
This may make our fine folks in uniform cringe, but there’s just not a whole lot of common sense baked into the notion of making your bed
every day. The benefits are that it a) looks nice and b) gives you a jolt of accomplishment first thing in the morning.But really, who needs that? Spend that extra time hugging your kids or brushing your teeth; it’s just time better spent.Throwing out Junk Mail
Sifting the wheat from the chaff in your daily mail haul really isn’t too much of a chore these days (thanks, Internet!), but we all still get plenty of stuff – particularly credit card offers.This is catnip for identity thieves and one wouldn’t be considered overly cautious if they decided to shred this along with all their other unwanted mail; for security as well as the environment. So, save up all your junk for Shred Day (usually the day before Recycling Day) and take care of it all at once.In short, you deserve a break from the daily grind. If you’re reading this on the date of publication, that means it’s Friday. Enjoy it.
