What to do when there is no time for reading
We all should agree we live during a time of rushing: starting from an early morning expected to rush through a shower, have a quick bite of breakfast, get dressed and show up at work just in time. Ticking deadlines won’t get sorted out by themselves, your beloved ones are continually waiting for you to come back home and spend some quality time together.
On the other side there is reading, a slow, personal and intimate action for oneself. I love reading, it takes me traveling without a ticket only with imagination by my side, broadens the view, gives new perspectives and ways of understanding things.
Marching in front of all professional geeks, I met the biggest problem of all - I ran out of time to simply sit down and read a book. I had an urge for reading but no time for actually doing it. It felt like a responsibility of mine to come up with new alternatives to improve myself and my precious daily life to contain my work, my family and books.
Reading while waiting for a game. Or DURING the game if it gets less interesting than your book <3
Digging a fresh book on steps of the biggest and most impressive-looking libraries in town while waiting to meet a boyfriend. Sort of ‘I’m a part of a movie about NY’ moment.
Long hours while waiting for doctor’s appointment? Do I need to say more?
Reading while waiting for lunch. Way better than scrolling on Facebook or Instagram. And helps you to look intelligent AF.
Read whenever the hell you have a free minute or two. Sometimes we don’t even need a special place, or special time, it’s enough to just have a book in your bag. When are you going to read if not now?
That’s all for now. Keep reading, kids, knowledge can take our lives to new levels. It’s about time to dust off that book that’s been laying next to your bed for a month or so. Go ahead and start reading.
As for myself, I am taking one too, with few chapters left and can’t wait to find out what happens next.
