One of the things I hear most often when talking about books is, “I don’t have time to read.” I know for some people, this is legitimate, but I also know that you make time for the things you enjoy.
Television, movies, and video games are some things people love to do to unwind. I know I love all three, but there is one thing all of those have in common: noise.
We are constantly bombarded with noise. Phones ringing, notifying, and alerting, computers bonging errors and telling us our coworkers need to interrupt our productiveness with ANOTHER meeting, doors being knocked, and bells being rung.
I challenge you to take 15 minutes, just 15 minutes, of your 24-hour day and read something in silence. Let your stress level drop and your blood pressure decrease. I bet you’ll feel a bit better when you do.
