A reading slump is a terrible thing that can frequently or occasionally happen to a reader…I made it sound like a disease but really, it is. Anyway, I don’t know about you but I detest reading slumps and I am currently in one right now so here are a few tips that will hopefully help you break your current or future reading slumps!
Push Away the Netflix – I watch Netflix pretty regularly but when I am on a reading slump that is all I do basically. When I am supposed to be reading I’m usually found binge watching the Vampire Diaries for the millionth time. So when this happens you just got to push the Netflix away and focus on reading, no matter how hard it may be. You can’t exactly read and watch at the same time…
Make Time for Reading – If you don’t make time for reading you are never going to pick up that book your struggling to finish. Plus if you don’t at least try to read you will not break your reading slump. I recommend making time to read an easy and fun book or just a book you know you love. Picking a book you love will make you more excited for reading because you know you are going to enjoy reading that book!
Turn Off Other Distractions – By this I mean turn off your phone, turn off your computer, turn off your iPad, tablet, really anything that can tempt you. You don’t want to be reading and then get a notification from YouTube and then end up binge watching different YouTube videos…that’s not going to progress you towards the end of your reading slump at all.
Don’t Force Yourself – This is a really important tip because reading is supposed to be fun and enjoyable and if you are not feeling that book then don’t read it because it to, is not going to help your reading slump. Make sure you are reading a book you like and are having a blast while reading!
I know those tips are pretty obvious but they are so true and sometimes people need a reminder about them! I hope this helped and don’t forget to check out my last post and comment if you have reading slumps frequently!
