Remember when you were little and your over-excited babysitter would try to make cleaning up a game. Carpet is hot lava, or put things up as fast as possible, that sorta thing. Well, a good 15 years later and I'm finally discovering the power of turning boring tasks into games. Gamification is making normal tasks like tidying up my apartment or reading a chapter for Bio much easier and more fun.
I use an app called Habitica to gameify my life. It's a free website and app that you can track daily todos, habits, and tasks. Each time you check something off you're rewarded with items and money you can use to boost you avatar.
