It’s been almost three months. I’ve been in a slump for almost three months. I’ve finished a couple of books but I’ve had near zero desire to read anything.
I’ve been busy with work and studying and cleaning and life and workouts and reading falls to the side so often. Which makes me wonder if it’s just me being busy or an actual slump. I think it’s a mixture.
The weird part? I don’t really miss it, but it’s bothering me I’m in the middle of nine books. I find this happens a lot when I read a ton of books at once.
I know a lot of people who push through slumps or dedicate a certain amount of time to read each day but honestly if I dedicate a certain time to it I end up scrolling through social media instead. I never force my way though a book slump so my reading has been way down since then. Unfortunately because of this I don’t have any tips to get over them.
So what do you do with that spare time that had been going to reading?
Honest answer: a lot more YouTube/ Netflix.
Another equally honest answer: more learning.
Basically my mornings are more study focused rather than a half and half thing I used to have way back when. However, at night instead of reading I’ll go and watch hours on end of YouTube and Netflix with my laptop calling to me. Some nights I focus on learning as well.
