☆ incorporate 合わせる
One way to make life sweet is to incorporate – in other words, include – things that you love to do with the things you have to do. For example, I have to walk my dogs each day, but I also love running. When I wanted to train for a marathon, I decided to incorporate my short runs into my walks with the dogs. It saved time, and helped me train for the marathon, while giving the dogs a good work out, and making us all happy!
I have a Japanese friend who makes amazing origami jewelry. She makes tiny cranes and so on, and creates earrings to sell. She has incorporated her skills from her hobby into a business. She sells her jewelry at stores, but also at markets, which means she has incorporated using English into her business and hobby, too! Perfect solution!
What about you? Can you think of any ways to incorporate your hobby or skills into a business or something that you have to do, to make it more enjoyable?
