We all know that reading is what everyone must engage in, at some point of their life, to survive the educational system you must read or you fail so we are forced to read starting from a very young age and as we grow up we begin to see reading as some kind of difficult task that should be avoided or replaced by another pleasurable activity and this shows why after college a lot of people stop learning, stop reading and stop educating themselves.

How To Find Your Motivation When It Comes To Reading

1. Curiousity :

When you anticipate a new movie release, it always seems as if you can't wait for the release date and when it is finally released whoollaa you rush to your favourite cinema or website to download it because you are curious to see what is in the movie or maybe you watched the trailer and it aroused the curious feeling in you.

When you pick a book it is possible to attach the same level of curiosity to the book as this will motivate you to get started, think of the new ideas, the new knowledge and how the book can change your life and how through the book you can teach others.

2. Visualize Your Progress

curiousity can get you started but won't keep you motivated through reading the entire book, you start feeling bored reading and may start thinking of quiting but it's normal, it happens to everyone. 

Here is a simple thing you can do. When you start reading try taking notes of those points that stood out for you and write out how you can apply them to your daily life and then tick 1% progress at the end. the next note you take tick 2% Progress and so on. When you feel like it's getting bored and you want to quit check the progress you've made and think of the further progress you can make

3. Schedule Regular Intervals For Reading

Reading at irregular intervals can become very stressful to your brain so pick a particular time of day you want to read and maintain consistency. This is what I do. I read 1 hour in the morning 2 hours in the afternoon and 3 hours at night so I read 6 hours daily this reduces the stress of reading and keeps me motivated as it makes reading less burdensome. You can start with 30 minutes daily

Do you love corn flakes, pop corn and maybe the beautiful sound of classical music? If yes then these activities are non distracting and when combine with reading can make it more fun. These activities releases dopamine in the brain which is known as the feel good chemical so this will keep you in a relax state and make reading more of a fun activity and less of a difficult chore

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
