This weeks highlight is one of my favorite hobbies in the entire world: reading!
Nothing helps calm my nerves more than retreating into the world of someone else for hours and hours on end; which is why I love reading so much! I’ve been reading for as long as I can remember, but I know that it became an undying habit in middle school. Now, I have books everywhere in my house.
Reading may not have many health benefits, but I know I consider it a part of my self-care because of the escape it gives me from my reality. With the type of job I have, sometimes I take breaks from work and read things hat have nothing to do with my job. Being that it’s so traumatic, I try to take time to take my mind completely opposite of that subject; reading helps with that. It also helps that I try to read things that will put me in a pretty good mood, inspire me to try new and different things, or motivate me to push towards my creative goals.
This week, escape the realities of adulthood and pick up a book, magazine, blog article or something that will put you in an uplifting mood.
