Happy Monday everyone, hope you all had a wonderful weekend! ❤
For the past few months, I’ve been struggling trying to balance reading and my busy schedule. There are times where I can go a couple of weeks without picking a book up and the amount of books I’ve been reading a month have definitely decreased. I thought I would share with you guys some tips I practice to try to motivate and help find more time for myself to read 🙂 Let’s get started!
It’s good to set aside a certain time in the day to read because you can slowly implement it to your daily routine. For myself, I set aside at least one hour of reading time before I go to bed. If you’re a morning person, you can choose to start of your day reading a couple of chapters as it can be very relaxing!
Taking part in different readalongs and readathons will be a great help because there’ll be people around that will help motivate you to read and it’s also a good way to make some new friends and future reading buddies! 🙂
Physical books can be a pain to carry around and read them since they’re so bulky so a good alternative are eBooks!!! I usually download the eBook version of a book I’m currently reading so that I can still bring it along with me to read while on the bus or when I’m waiting for someone 🙂
I personally find that novellas and anthologies are such quick reads! They’re easy for you to get through and they’re perfect if you’re having a busy week and just want something short to read.
I really like using reading goals to motivate myself to read and you don’t need to use Goodreads to set yourself a goal. Instead, you can just set a small goal ( E.g Read 3 chapters of my book today ) and most of the time, it’ll motivate you to hit that goal 🙂
That’s all for today’s blogpost and I hope you guys enjoyed it! Feel free to share with me in the comments any tips you have on finding more time to read as well ❤ Thank you for reading and I’ll see you in my next post, bye!
