Before I start my post today , let me remind you of one of my favorite quotes ever : “Bennie, If you can read , you can learn just about anything .” My Life , Ben Carson.
I won’t start talking about the benefits of reading and what you could gain from reading a book or more monthly , because definitely you know that , but one of the most requested posts that I have been asked to blog about is Finding Balance , how to live , study , work , exercise …… and read .
As A third year med student , my work is increasing day by day , studying , studying and studying that’s all I’m doing these days .But I Have actually achieved my reading goal this year ( by finishing 50 books and reading 33 more ) , yeah , till now I’ve finished reading 83 books , different genres and ideas , how Could I managed to do that ! that’s what I’m gonna talk about in this post .
There are periods in your life when you’ll read a lot, and there’ll be periods you’ll read very little , that’s completely normal , so don’t freak out if you find yourself haven’t read a book in a year , because life requires a lot from us , no matter what you do , you have things to finish , partner , kids, family or friends who demand some time from you.
So, first of all , MANAGE YOUR TIME SMARTLEY , plan your day every morning , use a journal , planner , notebook or just a piece of paper but you have to write down what you have to do . HAVE A BOOK WITH YOU. ALWAYS , having a book , physical or E-book , will guide your free time towards reading . READING BEFORE SLEEPING , instead of sitting on your phone before sleeping , damaging your eyes and brain , grab a book and start reading . AUDIOBOOKS , audiobooks are so great , especially if you drive yourself around .READ WHAT YOU LOVE . reading about things that interest you will excite and motivate you to read more .
For me , I always start my day by reading approximately for 30 minutes , actually helps me a lot , especially that I always read at that time about neurosurgery which is my goal in life , gives me a lot of motivation and ability to go through the day.
Reading through the bus ride ,as I need to take the public transportation to reach my University , is amazing because I get a lot of it done . I love reading Between lectures and during my breaks also .
But I get a lot of reading done , after exams , how ? , after every exam I relax and read for 24 hours ( have a readathon , bookworms , you know what I’m talking about ) , simply I don’t do anything except read a good book and relax in one of my favorite places , my kind of celebration .
With all that , I end my article here , hope you get good tips from this , and please let me know if you have any advice for me to read more .
“I never feel lonely if I’ve got a book – they’re like old friends. Even if you’re not reading them over and over again, you know they are there. And they’re part of your history. They sort of tell a story about your journey through life” . Emilia Fox
Until next time ,
Stay strong and change the world .
