The task for Week 14 of a Lighter More Loving You is to READ SSLLOOWWLLY!
This week schedule an hour to turn off the devices and read. Cuddle up at home or go to a coffee shop with comfy chairs.
I came across this article not long ago…
“Once a week, members of a Wellington, New Zealand, book club arrive at a cafe, grab a drink and shut off their cellphones. Then they sink into cozy chairs and read in silence for an hour. The point of the club isn’t to talk about literature, but to get away from pinging electronic devices and read, uninterrupted. The group calls itself the Slow Reading Club, and it is at the forefront of a movement populated by frazzled book lovers who miss old-school reading” – Jeanne Whalen, Wall Street Journal Link to article HERE.
I love to read, yet making time to read novels was a rarity. I tended to find myself skimming articles and blogs, enjoying only the photos in magazines, and picking up work related books over a novel.
Then I saw the SLOW READING CLUB site and was inspired. It’s not really a book club with discussions. It is time to relax, unplug, and read!
There is something quite luxurious about cozy-ing up and escaping into a good story.
There are health benefits for doing this as well! After you have your READ SSLLOOWWLLYY hour, share what benefit you received!
