When I talk about recurring practices, such as many physical practices, there is often a form of some repetitive work that can be thought of as boring, mundane etc.

Is there a word to describe a practice in which even though it might contain such repetitive work, it's not considered as boring?

Along the temperament of always approaching with fun and curiosity.

Sometimes this idiom is used to help add excitement to "practice".
