Books are the secret weapon to explore the life around you and make you wiser, kinder and humbler and also it gives you an extra point from other non-readers.
Maybe it’s easy to praise reading and as being a reader it becomes more easier but what about a non-reader?
A book is just like an irritating boss for a non-reader who they just want to ignore whenever they face them. So, how they start reading if they hate too much the books?
Here are some tips to let you get a habit of reading on regular basis :-
Every individual has some interest like sports, horror, thriller, classic tales etc and on every interest there are a lot of books available in every language. Pick your genre and find a corner.
Start reading with 10 pages a day but it’s not necessary to read only 10 pages, you can start from 20, 25 pages but the main motive is to increase the number of pages on regular basis that will also improve your concentration and focus as well.
Make a routine when you can find the time to read in morning or in night or while travelling. There are people who read while they commute to their office, college or if they are on a travel, there are people who read before going to bed. Pick your best time and start reading.
When you have started reading with your favorite genre and love the world of words it’s high time to shift to different genres as you will get to know more interesting stuff and a different perspective. It will also increase your thinking ability in all dimensions. Maybe you can also find the different genre more interesting than your previous genre.
Whenever you read, make a habit of take note or highlight the important lessons you learn from that particular book you find suitable for your work. Take these ideas or thought in your daily life. By taking notes and implementing them it will help you grow and also ignite the spark in you for reading.
