The Benefits of Reading as a Student
Apr 19 2023
This post goes out to all the burnt-out university students who still want to read for fun but are scared they’ll either: a) fall into/are in a reading slump or b) the book will take up all of their study time because it’s too long to read. I’ve been there, and both a) and b) have happened to me, so I’m here to recommend a few books that will help you with the awful curse that are reading slumps but that won’t take away from your study time.I’m sure you’ve all been told before to “take breaks” when you’re studying, and while I’ll admit that I’m the kind of person who typically ignores this advice (I know, it’s terrible), reading is actually what helped me heed this advice and take those breaks. Especially with having Fable on my phone, which I carry everywhere I go, I no longer have an excuse for not taking breaks. After studying for a set amount of time, I’ll usually take out my book (if I remember to bring it) or open Fable and start reading a few pages before returning to work. Now, I know many of us will have the urge to open social media instead of reading a few pages, but trust me when I say that reading will be more beneficial to you and your studies than scrolling.
