Deal with the Dishes
The ever-present dirty-dish pile in the kitchen sink is yet another household chore that just about everyone loathes tackling. But if you divide it up into two-minute increments, you'll feel a sense of accomplishment without exhaustion. Commercial breaks probably aren't the right time to slap on the rubber gloves and scrub pots and pans, but they're a perfect opportunity to load or unload the dishwasher. Put away glasses during one break, silverware during another, and you'll be done before you know it.
