Finding Time to Read



"How do you find time to read?"

It's a question I get asked OFTEN. People will come across one of my book stacks and wonder how I ever find time as work-from-home, mom of four, to read. Most people who know me know I enjoy reading very much. It's my favorite way to relax and my favorite thing to do during my down time.

As most wives and mothers, I don't have a whole lot of down time. Because of that reading often becomes a luxury. So how do we I do it? How do I find time to read?

There's one thing I do to find time to read, and it's something you can do too. Ready for it?

I make time to read. 

That's it. I make the time. It means I have to decide it's important enough to me and I make time for it. Sometimes it means I read in the bathtub (oftentimes it means I read in the bathtub), sometimes it means I stay up a little bit later.I almost always have a book with me in my purse so if I have to wait in a long line I have something to pass the time. I read while I blowdry my hair (because is there a more boring chore in life than blow-drying your hair?!) OFTEN it means I limit my screen time to read. Why? Because I decided reading is more important to me than watching TV.

Do you want to find more time to read? Then just like everything else that's important in life, you have to make the time for it.
