1. Write helpers.
2. Write middleware.
The first is zero magic, and allows you to opt-in to abstractions as needed. The latter is more powerful and can remove pretty much any boilerplate, but you have to be careful about introducing too much magic.
Redux isn't much different than any other code you might write. If you prematurely abstract, you could create a leaky abstraction, and you'll have to unroll the whole thing. If you don't abstract at all, and copy-pasta everything, you're also going to have a bad time.
