The best way to get household chores done? Listen to Podcasts, Audio books or Lectures while on and about the kitchen or home. I swear by them sometimes and other times I have to drag my headphones to my ear but once on… all the background noise shuts off!
When I have an active brain, I prefer to listen to the Holy Quran by Mishary al Afasi. That is the way I do it and have done so for a few years now. It is the best way to cut out all your negative thoughts; and while your mind is busy, get some chores done too. Listening to the Quran is best when you are not tired and are capable of paying attention and pondering over the verses. When you listen over and over again, you can memorise too and it has such a calming and destressing effect.
