Would you mind checking this sentence?

One of the great benefits of music as a stress reliever is that it can be used while you do your usual deeds so that it really doesn't take extra time.

How about "work" or "jobs"? [STRIKE]This[/STRIKE] The word "deeds" sounds [STRIKE]weired[/STRIKE] weird to me too.

What sort of things did you mean by "usual deeds"? That will help us choose the appropriate term.

End the sentence at 'chores'. What follows makes no sense.

I would use "you can listen" rather than "it can be used".

One of the great benefits of music as a stress reliever is that you can listen while you do your chores.
