Let's face it: there are certain things we can all give up for the sake of more reading time:
Do those dishes really need to be washed? Does your toilet really need to be cleaned? And come on, that laundry doesn't need to be done. You still have a pair of pants somewhere that aren't dirty.
Okay, I love food so I would never advocate that you give up eating (if I ever do, that is code for I have been kidnapped and I am in trouble). No . . . but you can give up cooking. Grab a power bar. Or better yet, grab a couple dozen pieces of chocolate. It's cool to have chocolate for dinner, right?
I try to work out and for the most part, I am successful. But I have been known to skip a workout because I just have to finish the book I'm reading. So skip that session on the treadmill. That book is way more important than any calorie burn.
I know Netflix is tempting, but TURN IT OFF! Binge watch Gilmore Girls later . . . that book is just too good to resist!
5. Talking with loved ones
6. The Internet
Ahh, this one is the hardest of all of them. I know it's so easy to get sucked into Facebook and Twitter and comments on your blog . . . . but your book must come first.
So what do you think of my list? Do you have any tips you would like to share? Any activities that I didn't mention that are working skipping in favor of reading?
