why does cleaning out the lint trap of a dryer feel so damn gratifying?

  2. My therapist (whom I saw for a year in 2004-2005) said that's because it's a chore or a task that you can control, i.e. you see the lint, you clean out the lint trap, job completed.

    We live in an uncertain world where there are SO MANY things in our lives that are beyond our control. Sometimes, it's the little things we can control that give us so much satisfaction.

    Mine is doing the laundry. Nothing feels more satisfying that a load of clean laundry. :-)
