I’m in a bit of a reading rut. After finishing about a book a week all year, I only read a book and a half in all of September. Not keeping up my normal pace doesn’t really bother me, but it does help me see I didn’t take much time for myself this month. Self-care was one of the main reasons I wanted to read more this year. Makes total sense with the craziness of school and fall activities starting, but I’d still like to turn it around so I’m intentionally slowing down and staying off my phone.
Habits that have helped me read more in the past include:
- Creating an extra cozy spot to read
- Carving out weekend time
- Reading at least one chapter before bed
- Charging my phone in a different room
Anyone else in a reading rut these days? What do you do when that happens?
