You may be someone who is feeling the pressures of modern life. We all have our crosses to bear with regards to this year. And now we’re seeing the back of it, we may want to start thinking about making better resolutions to become healthier and happier in 2021, no matter what life throws at us. One of the most fantastic ways to do this is to have hobbies that strengthen and improve our lives. Reading is one of the simplest things, but it can improve our lives in so many ways. Perhaps you have been working at home for so long and now you want to get more hobbies back into your life, but what is it take to incorporate more reading into your life?
Always Carry a Book Wherever You Go
Having a book in your bag is a little reminder that you have access to knowledge. Wherever you are and you have a spare minute to take the book out of your bag gives you a fantastic opportunity to get some wisdom into your day. You may find the compulsion to read strikes at any moment. In this case, it is better to be prepared. You may find that you have a specific place that you like to read, however impractical it may be, or you may only get peace and quiet when you are up a mountain. In which case embrace these quirky little places. t doesn’t hurt to have anti fog lenses on your glasses if you are in an area that is completely impractical. But there’s something wonderful about being halfway up the mountain with a thermos of coffee, some warming clothes, and a perfect read.
Reading to Your Children
It is one of the best ways to cultivate a love of reading in yourself, as well as your children. If you have not been doing a bedtime story, now is the perfect opportunity. Giving your children a wide variety of books to choose from but also allowing yourself the luxury of picking a child-friendly book that also appeals to you is a fantastic way to get a wide variety of appreciation. We can get it into our heads that reading a book should be something that is either for kids or for grown-ups. But we can very easily appreciate something like Dr Seuss that is for children. And this is, arguably, the cornerstone of fantastic literature. There are amazing books out there that are brilliant for adults and kids alike. From Paddington to The Gruffalo and everything in between there are fantastic books for you to use as a stepping stone.
Make a List
What are the things that you want to read? It’s not about the things that you think you should be reading. Whether you like trashy crime thrillers or you are all about “stream of consciousness” literature, there’s a book for everyone! If you want to incorporate more reading into your life, it’s very straightforward. And reading is something that, during these difficult times, provides fantastic escapism. Reading is perfect in so many ways, and while we very easily read our phones, the quality of the things we read can dip somewhat. Getting into books is something that we should really start.
