Im looking for the word for doing a task, that can be done without giving a lot of attention to it. Your mind can do something else while doing the task.

The example was doing the dishes.

    Please give a sentence leaving a blank where you would use this word. Why did you choose the tag "verbs"? It's confusing.

"mindless" is the word that comes to my mind. From M-W

especially: not intellectually challenging or stimulating
