(Y-11) 32 days…mindful reading

As I approach the end of this year of reading, which has been beyond amazing, I start to get itchy about my total pages,and how close I got to my goal.

Right now, I have a total of 43,093 pages, that is 4,612 to go in order for this year to be my best one yet, and 9,907 to my ultimate goal.

This got me thinking, some people have work-out routines in which they release some of the stress of the day, and as a bonus keep themselves healthy.

So, with that in mind, I will start a “reading as meditation” routine, some mindful reading if you will, it will be three sessions along the day, 49 minutes in the morning, 21 minutes in the afternoon and another 49 minutes at night.

This will be drop everything, relax, and enjoy a great read, and by the end of the day I will have read for a couple of hours and released some stress.

I will, as much of the things I do with anything related to reading, share my daily experience.

I am glad to say that I will have some great company for this new routine, my good friend Edwin from the blog Lo Que Leemos will be joining, and will be keeping track of the experience.

We will start with a week and take it from there.

And if you what to join, you are more than welcome.

Now, off to read.

  1. interesting approach that I’ve not seen anywhere else. Most other people trying to read more set a target of number of pages. Will take a look at later posts to see how you are getting along

    1. Thank you, it has been really fulfilling doing it, but really hard too, more so because I am right in the middle of my Masters, but I’ll keep trying to achieve it everyday, even the days I say I would not.
