I dont think I need to tell you that reading is good for you—great for you. The more you read, the more you learn. The more you learn, the greater the grasp you have on how the world ticks. Reading expands your life perspective and fine tunes your life filter. You understand life more, and in turn, can deal with it better. Unfortunately, most people dont read. Sometimes, people do want to read—theyve got a book at home sitting on the shelf that they fancy—but can never seem to find the time. Well my friends, this post is for you.
阅读的好处,甚至是伟大之处,我无需赘言。你读得越多,学到的也越多。你学到的越多,对世界就了解得越多。阅读能够扩展你的人生视野,并且对你的生活准则进行微调。对于生活,你懂得更多,相应地就会应对得更自如。遗憾的是,大多数人并不阅读。有时候,人们真心想读书——他们拿来一本书,坐在家里最爱的书架旁——但似乎永远也找不到时间来读。那么,我的朋友们,就来看看这篇文章吧。 verywen.com

10.Reading is a pleasure.
Obviously, to get yourself motivated to read, read something that interests you. Meditation, animals, philosophy, sex—whatever you want. If youre drawn to the book, the more likely youll be excited to pick it up and read it.


9.Set triggers.
Make reading a habit by setting triggers. For example, breakfast (among other things), is my trigger. Whenever I break the fast, I make it a rule to read. You can do this for anything—when you go the washroom, when youre riding the subway, while you eat dinner, before bed—you get the point. Your triggers will act as a friendly reminder that you should read. It may take some time getting used to (like all habits do), but its worth it!
通过设置启动器使阅读成为一种习惯。例如,早餐(在其他事情之中)是我的启动器。无论我几点吃早餐,我规定自己要阅读。你可以把任何事当做启动器——在洗手间的时候,坐地铁的时候,吃晚饭时,上床睡觉前——你懂的。你的启动器可以友好地提示你该读书了。这需要有段时间才能习惯(像所有习惯一样),但绝对值得! www.verywen.com

8.Have a goal
Some people set radical goals for themselves like reading one book a week. (Yeah, I know right?) Obviously you dont have to be as radical as that. You can start by reading a book a month. Or a book every two months even. Up to you. Whatever floats your boat. But setting a goal and aspiring to reach it gives you a focus thatll help you get the job done.


Accountability helps. Maybe have a reading partner. Set something up between the both of you where you tell each other what book youre going to read and when youre going to check in with one another to see through your promise. Another thing you can do is borrow books from your local library. (A gold mine!) The return date gives you a sense of pressure to finish your book by a certain deadline.
责任感可以起作用。也许你可以找个阅读小伙伴,彼此约定好在什么地方,打算读什么书,什么时间相互检查进度以便坚持到底。你可以做的另一件事就是从你们当地图书馆借书来读。(这简直是一座金矿!)还书日期会给你一种压力,让你在规定的期限内读完你的书。 本文来自美文网

6.Read whenever you can.
If youre determined and willing, use every possible moment when youre idle to indulge in the art of the written word. On the bus. On the subway. On your lunch break. When youre at the gym. You wont regret it, I promise!
如果你有决心并且愿意的话,当你有空沉溺于文字艺术世界时,可以把可能的分分秒秒都利用起来,公交车上,地铁上,午休时间,健身时间……你不会后悔的,我保证! verywen.com


5.Just start
Sometimes the thing preventing us from reading is our own mind. Our mind will make up all kinds of excuses not to do something. Not get out of bed. Not clean the house. Not shower (whoops). And in this case, not read. The trick to bypassing this mental block is to just pick up the dang book already and read! Dont pour too much thought into the action. Just do it. Once you start reading (if its a good book), its quite difficult to stop!
有时,妨碍我们阅读的东西是我们自己的思想。我们的思想会为不去做某件事而编出各种各样的借口,如还没起床,没打扫房间,没洗澡(唉!)。在这些情况下,就不读了。超越这些思想障碍的窍门就是,拿起书,开读!别想太多,开始行动。一旦你开始读了(如果这是本好书的话),就很难停下来了! 美文网

4.Always have your book in reach.
Wherever I go, Ive always got a book with me. Whenever Im at home, a book is always near. That way, I dont have to think much when the idea that I should maybe spend my free time reading instead of diddle-daddling on social media or watching Netflix comes into my head. I just grab the book and start reading. Having your book some place else other than you are adds one more hurdle in your decision making process to not read. Its a small inconvenience, but the mind is superb in making up excuses for ourselves. Aw, its in the other room. I think Ill just watch funny vine compilations on YouTube instead. Been there, done that!
无论去哪,我总是随身带着本书。无论何时在家,书都离我不远。这样一来,当我觉得应该利用空闲来读书,而非在社交媒体上浪费时间或看美剧时,就不必想太多,伸手抓起书就可以读了。把书放在离你较远的地方,会给你要读书时增加一个障碍,以至于放弃读书。尽管只是个小小的不便,但人们的思想在为自己找借口时是很卓越的。哎呀,书在另一个房间呢,我想我还是在YouTube上看有趣的视频合集吧。在其位,谋其政! copyright verywen.com

3.Create a dedicated time for yourself.
Whether its deciding to wake up a half hour early to get in a few chapters, or choosing to get into bed and cozy up with a book before you eventually doze off, dedicating time specifically for reading helps so much. Just saying Every night, right before I hit the hay, Im going to dedicate a couple minutes to reading, can be a powerful decision in itself.
无论是打算早起半小时读上几个章节,或是选择睡前在床上舒适地享受一本书,为阅读留出专用时间是很有帮助的。对自己说:每天晚上,在上床睡觉之前,我要留出一点时间来读书,是很有效的方式。 verywen.com

2.Eliminate distractions.
Get rid of the laptop. Turn your phone off. No Netflix. Goodbye TV. Focus on your book.


1.Create a dedicated space for yourself.
Sometimes, the best way to set the mood for reading is having a dedicated space for ones self. Perhaps yours is in bed, with your bedside lamp illuminating the nights final task. Perhaps its in the library. Perhaps you have the luxury of creating a reading room for yourself. Perhaps its snug in the corner of your local coffee shop.
有时,调试心情到阅读状态的最好方法就是为自己准备一个专属空间。也许是在床上,让床头的台灯照亮夜晚最后一项任务。也许是在图书馆。也许,你拥有打造一个专属阅览室的奢侈享受。也许,是在附近咖啡馆角落里的舒适空间。 verywen.com

Reading may seem like a mental strain at first thought. But truth be told, its a pleasurable, rewarding leisure activity. Youll add zest and colour to your vocabulary, expand your life perspective, enlighten yourself with the wisdom and insight of others, and perhaps even learn a little bit about your being in the process which you wouldnt have otherwise. I hope this article has brought value to your life. Happy reading!
