I would say that's the difficult way.

Most modern rear drum brakes have an automatic adjustment, which is only activated in reverse by the opposite torque direction. If you don't drive in reverse often, find an area where safe, and while moving in reverse, apply the brakes very firmly. This will trigger spring loaded adjustment on the star wheel.

Whala, adjustment complete. Check your shoes anyway just to make sure they're not just worn out.
