40 Things to Give Up for a Better Life
#18 Speed Reading
Few years ago I started challenging myself to read more books. My goal was to read 52 books in a year.That’s a book a week. Though I reached the goal, I found I read so quickly that reading lost some of its enjoyment. The competition took over. I lost my love for reading somewhere in the process.
Then I heard about slow reading. Slowing down to enjoy and comprehend more of what I read. I found a book I want to read slowly, one chapter a day. Reading this way has given me back the desire to read. I love the idea of thinking about the chapter throughout the day, really taking in what I’ve learned.
You may not be a book lover, but I bet there’s something in your life that you speed through. Why not try slowing down. You might find you enjoy it more.
