I know, I know we are nearly at the end of January (although it doesn’t feel it) and I’m still here making new goals and intentions for 2020. It’s ok though as I’ve been taking this month steady, going easy on myself and settling in to the new year and new routines.
My first new reading intention is to make time. I find time to scroll on my phone and I find time to stand around my house designing interiors I’ll never change and I find time to watch endless YouTube videos. In these times I could definitely be reading, opening my mind and doing something that completely relaxes me. I find reading and taking those moments good for my mental health so why wouldn’t I do more of it.
The second goal is to read one book a month. I’m doing well coming up to the end of January as I have finished a book (I did start it before Christmas but left it sat for too long) but I can’t wait until I have read a minimum amount of 12 over the year. I consider that for myself and my time this is workable.
The third, but not final, goal and intention is to broaden my genres. I have a strong tendency to stick to the books and genres I know. They are easy to purchase as most of the time you’ll know what you’ll get, happy go lucky themes and end up exactly how you wanted it too. I have ventured out of my comfort zone before but a while ago now and should do it again to get the best from more books.
Do you have any reading goals for 2020?
Until next time,
