Set yourself daily page targets!
While I’m skeptical about racing through books just for the sake of it, setting yourself daily page targets is a great way of getting into a solid reading habit. Give yourself an ambitious – but realistic – target so that you’re right in the sweet spot between suitably challenged and horribly overwhelmed. I’m lucky in that I can read most days on the bus to work, but we can all make time to do a bit of reading every day; even ten minutes would be enough.
Read Before Bed
Well, why not substitute a thousand distractions for one and start reading before you drift off? Science has found that reading at bedtime eases stress, contributing to better sleep. It’s a good way to switch off your mind before you start another day.
