I think that the most challenging part about reading a book for most is that they want to start a book and finish it immediately. If your schedule doesn’t permit for that, but you still want to read, here are two things that I do:
Listen To Audiobooks – Though it’s not reading yourself, it’s another way to gather information provided in books. I listen to finance and personal development audio books often.
Leave A Book Open On Your Counter Or Table – I really, really enjoy reading about aromatherapy, holistic living, and natural healing so I leave the book I’m currently reading open on the counter in my kitchen. When I’m cooking and at the end of the night I read a few pages.
As you are doing something positive, your perspective will adjust to be motivated and thankful.
What are you thankful for today?
Day to day we wake up, go about our day, return to rest, to it over again the next day. Some days we may focus on what we don’t have, which can be very draining, disappointing, and for some, overly dramatic.
Instead of letting the lack of something you want in physical form, a relationship or monetarily, find a favorite or new book, cook your favorite dish, cook a new dish, meditating also helps, get out to hike, or make art.
Find something that you enjoy to transform negative energy. As you are doing something positive, your perspective will adjust to be motivated and thankful.
