There was once a time when reading was a big part of most people’s daily lives. Televisions didn’t exist, smartphones didn’t exist, video games didn’t exist… you’re probably starting to sense a pattern. Screens have taken over our lives, and the popularity of reading actual books has gone down the drain. Even people who love reading opt for phone-based articles that are far less satisfying. If you’re feeling frustrated about the lack of reading in your life, here are some tips to ensure this happens.
10 Minutes a Night
One thing you can do is set aside a time each night when you’ll be reading. 10 minutes before you go to bed is a great option because it’s not that big of a commitment and it’s much better than scrolling on your phone.
A Weekend Activity
Another option is to set aside an hour or so every weekend to read. Whether it’s Sunday afternoon or Saturday morning, the weekend can be a great time to unwind and detach from technology by reading a nice book.
Find Something You Love
If you don’t like being on a schedule, one good way to ensure that you follow through with reading a book is to pick something you love. If you’re passionate about the subject, you’ll keep coming back for more.
