Chores invite meditation

Apparent chores such as cleaning, cooking, laundry, gardening and ironing can be tremendously rewarding for the stressed individual.

What is so satisfying about washing dishes?
You begin with a mess. 
You deal with the immensity of the task one piece at a time.
There is a tangible starting point, a process and a completion point.
When the task has been finished, you can step back and appreciate the work.
The value can be found in the doing part of the endeavour.
