Jumping into Spring Reading

The time for spring cleaning is approaching quickly! When the warm weather creeps in and you start to feel energized and motivated, it’s time to start cleaning up and cleaning out. Once you get your life organized it’s time to grab a good book for some spring reading. Reading when you feel refreshed, destressed, and rejuvenated can be very beneficial in many ways. Plus, who doesn’t love reading a good book?

Start a new book series.

I know there is one in the back of your head right now. You’re thinking of that book series that you’ve been curious about for a while now but haven’t had the chance to start reading. Now is the time! There is no better time than early spring to start a new book series - even if it is intimidatingly long. When warmer weather welcomes you morning after morning, your stress levels begin to drop, and your concentration increases. Therefore, you can focus on a story better than ever, and we all know starting a new series of books takes a lot of focus. 

Take a book with you to the park.

Parks aren’t just for strolling and playing sports. The benches are placed under the big shady oak trees for a reason. Take advantage of the mild spring temperatures, and bring your book along with your favorite spring beverage out to the park. If your park is crowded and the sounds distract you, put some noise-canceling headphones in and listen to a nice instrumental to boost your concentration. 

Try a book you wouldn’t typically choose.

This is the perfect time of the year to branch out and read genres you don’t normally read. If you normally read factual books, try a more colorful and fantasy-oriented book. Or, if you normally read love stories, try a suspenseful thriller novel! You might end up discovering a love for a new genre by doing this. Even if you end up hating it, at least you can say you tried.

Make a reading journal.

If you haven't already, spring is a great time to start keeping a reading log or journal. This is a great way to organize your reading schedule and reflect on the meaning of what you read on a daily basis. A reading journal is a great way to self reflect. You can discover interests you never knew you had!
