Reading is a beautiful thing for it broadens up our minds. BUT,it is not easy at all,there is always that book you have always wanted to read until the last page but you just can’t finish it off. We are giving you easy ways into getting yourself into reading that book. Here is how you can do it!
Always have a book on-hand.
You will always have an opportunity to read. You’ll read on your morning commute (well, iBook if you are driving). There is time when waiting at the doctor’s office, or wasting a couple of minutes before a meeting or conference call.
I find I can bear the line at the grocery store much better with a book, while the guy at checkout looks for his card. Instead of letting this time go unused, pick-up a book and start reading.
The only way you can take advantage of short minutes is if you have a book on hand. That’s why I always carry a book with me. And, thanks to gadgets like Kindle, this is even more convenient.
Borrow reading time from something less important.
I got it. The thought of reading for two or three hours a day may seem like a serious time commitment But if you borrow time from something else you’ll realize that it’s really pretty easy to devote more time to reading.
For example, do you know that the average American spends five hours every day watching TV? If you fall into that category, then reduce your TV watching to two hours per day and spend the other three hours reading. Try reading first, then TV, the other way around doesn’t work quite as well.
Partake in reading challenges.
This is an excellent way to encourage you to read more books because it’s fun and interactive. For example, Goodreads has an annual challenge reading that gamifies your reading goal. You can also discover new books to read by seeing what your friends have read.
You can find a list of reading challenges compiled by Book Riot.
Create a distraction-free reading environment.
Some distractions you can’t avoid, like when your Amazon Prime delivery gets dropped off and your dog goes nuts. But there are plenty of other distractions that you do have control over.
Start by reading in a room that is quiet and doesn’t have temptations like a TV. You could also turn your phone on silent or airplane mood for a certain amount of time.
Instead of dropping P200 or P300 on clothes or junk that you don’t really need when you have some extra cash, build-up an inventory of books.
It may sound ridiculous at first, but it’s one of the best motivations to read more because once you finish a book you can view your inventory and decide what to read next.
