HOW TO DEVELOP A HABIT OF READING BOOKS ( AND FALLING IN LOVE WITH THEM!)
✴It takes three weeks to six weeks for developing a habit. Spare at least half an hour for reading books on a regular basis and create an environment for reading. Please stay away from distractions especially gadgets and noise. Concentrate on what are you reading. Take a start from any interesting book. Give yourself a challenge of three weeks and in shaa Allah you will get a habit developed,subject to consistency. Whatever time you allocate for reading please don’t miss it and don’t allocate that time to any other activity. Once you develop a habit of reading,that taste won’t allow you to give up such a meaningful habit!.📅
Find yourself a nice cafe. A place with a comfy chair, nice views and a cool pleasant ambience. It doesn’t have to be just the one cafe, perhaps a different cafe every now and again. Treat yourself to your favourite hot drink and get that book out!
- If cafe’s are not your thing then hunt for libraries? There are many hidden gems, if you have the will to look for them!
- Find a quiet spot with a nice view of your town, city or village. This helps you enjoy the whole experience of a good book and surrounded by a beautiful setting!
- At first, it may be a struggle. You will get distracted, maybe you want to turn to your phone! or look around or even just let your thoughts wander! but fight all this and come back to the book. This may happen to you a few times, but repeat the process.
