Reading is an activity that is often overlooked in today's society. We live in a world where our time is constantly being pulled in different directions.
But one of the most important things that we can do for ourselves, and others, is to read. Reading has been shown to increase empathy and understanding of different perspectives, expand vocabulary, and improve problem-solving skills.
Reading is an integral part of a person's life. It's good to make time for reading in your daily life because it can help you grow and develop your skills. It can also help you enjoy your day better by giving you something to look forward to at the end of it.
But if you're anything like me, reading can sadly get deprioritized for other mundane tasks. So if wanting to get back to enjoying a daily reading habit, lets look at how.
How to Make Reading a Priority No Matter What
Reading is a great way to increase knowledge, improve memory and have fun. The more you read, the better your vocabulary becomes and the better you are at understanding others.
Tips for reading more books:
1. Find Time for Reading by Setting Goals
Reading is a great way to stay up to date with the latest trends. It can also improve your vocabulary. There are many apps out there that can help you set and track reading goals, such as Habitica, which can turn reading into a game.
2. Read on a Different Device Other Than Your Phone
Reading books and zines are a great engaging way to learn about information on a specific topic in an easy-to-read format. Reading zines give a really authentic experience, we highly recommend it.
3. Set Aside Time for Reading Every Day and Stick to it
Reading is so important, but we never seem to set aside the time for it. If time is something you struggle with, start small (like 10 minutes) to read every day and stick to it no matter what.
