How often do you read? Chances are you’re reading much less than you’d like. It happens to everyone. We try to set aside time for this sense-awakening pastime only to have our to-do lists and last-minute errands steal that sacred time away from us.
Be more rigid with your reading time. It’s an invigorating experience for your heart and your mind. So, at a time when reading is verging on becoming an extinct art, put down your phone and pick up a book. A world of inspiration and awe awaits.
