I really hated doing laundry, especially as a little kid. Just because it needs be done, doesn't mean it needs to be a complicated procedure. This is how I've found peace with my laundry and other chores.
While I don't do the KonMari method with my belongings (drawn out procedure with too many steps for my preference), I think she has an excellent point about taking a pause break for appreciation. With laundry, sometimes it is just nice to explore the qualities of the warm and fresh cleanliness of laundry. It's easier for me to want to rescind gratitude in favour of functioning on autopilot and blow over a set of tasks, but I do find value in prioritizing gratitude more these days.
Breaking down the activity to smaller tasks.
Without getting to specific, I lean more toward breaking down an activity to sustainable tasks so I can more readily identify where I want to change my habits. So far, here's what I've come up with for managing laundry:
Energy conservation is the idea that we prioritize and plan to do things throughout the day when we are in less pain or have less fatigue.
This is where I own the fact that sometimes the laundry sits in the dryer a bit longer. Does my clothes have wrinkles? No; nothing I own gets wrinkled or requires ironing. I spend more attention and detail on assuring that I buy products that I don't feel like require extra work than what I do and hanging clothes takes out wrinkles and creases for me.
Additionally, when I pull my stuff, I do kinda dump it on a surface where I will sort everything according to where it goes in the closet. I might be inclined to leave the sorting part-way through if I need to. End of the world? Nope.
Overall, I'm happy with my system. I was expected to start doing my own laundry since I was seven, but I will note that having much younger children might require a different system, maybe even responsibility sharing if they're ready, but that's my system. Now copy paste the principles to other "chores." Keep it simple.
