Just ask Sam Barry, author of Play The Harmonica: And Other Life Lessons (Gibbs Smith), who says joy can be found in any task.
For example, instead of vacuuming the regular way, he prefers doing it in a tuxedo and dancing with the vacuum cleaner like hes Fred Astaire.
As for laundry, the playful way includes dressing up in costume and shooting the clothes like basketballs into the machines.
But the best thing one can do to add happiness to their life is play the harmonica.
Barry says its the ultimate playful instrument and its impossible to be upset with a mouthful of harmonica.
He notes that you cant yell at your kids or dog while playing it, and it forces you to take a breath and relax.
Hes been playing harmonica since he was a kid and feels exhilarated after a jam session, without a care in the world.
