As difficult as it is to get into a routine, it quickly starts to become a habit once you start to see the results. That first workout day is a drag. But you know that once you start to see some definition in your physique and the numbers are dropping on your scale, it starts to become something that you look forward to. Not only that, but it becomes second nature.As difficult as it is to get into a routine, it quickly starts to become a habit once you start to see the results. That first workout day is a drag.

Since reading doesnt have those obvious physical benefits, its hard for us to appreciate just how much of a difference that it makes for us. Reading is more like a hobby for us when it should be a habit.

There are loads of apps that keep track of your workout routines. How far youve gone, how many sets youve completed etc. But we normally dont keep track of our progress while reading. You probably never consider how fast or how much you read because its just a luxury activity.

We can train our minds just like how we train our bodies

If you treat reading as a fair-weather activity then you wont get very far. If you pick up a book, just read a few pages and return to it weeks later, youre going to forget everything youve read. Now you have to reread everything to get yourself up to speed before you can continue on.

If we treated reading like a workout instead of a luxury, we could actually improve our reading skills. Essentially, we could train ourselves to increase our reading speed and input a wider variety of information in a shorter amount of time. But how?
