Few of us like house work and doing mundane chores. They are the sort of thing we rush through to get done so we can relax and enjoy life. These mundane moments can be used as relaxation moments in our lives. Doing something repetitive such as washing dishes, ironing and cleaning give us the opportunity to let our mind rest and become still. They are a perfect way to become calm and still.
Next time you have a pile of dishes or mountain of clothes, rather than let your heart sink at the thought of all that work, take a deep breath and relax and enjoy the few moments of relaxation as your mind empties.
If you can encourage your child to see mundane jobs in the same way, it will make for a peaceful and relaxing home.
