The Ultimate Hack To Get More Reading in Your Day

The Ultimate Hack To Get More Reading in Your Day

In our fast-paced world, finding time to read can be a challenge. Yet, the ultimate hack to effortlessly incorporate more reading into your daily routine is simple: create a cozy, inviting reading nook. A dedicated space for reading can transform your habits, making it easier and more enjoyable to dive into your favorite books. Here are 5 ways that will help you design the perfect reading nook and beckon you to spending more time with a good book!

#1: Have a Reading Spot

The foundation of a great reading nook is the right location. Look for a quiet, serene spot in your home where you can retreat without interruptions. Ideal choices include a sunny corner by a window, a secluded alcove, or even a peaceful area on your patio. Natural light is beneficial, but if it’s not available, ensure your nook is well-lit with a cozy floor lamp or reading light.

#2. Focus on Comfort

The centerpiece of your reading nook is your seating. Find a chair (or perhaps a hanging chair, *cough cough) that provides a great sense of comfort and tranquility. Enhance it with plush cushions and a soft throw blanket for added coziness.

#3. Optimize Lighting

Good lighting is essential for reading. If natural light isn’t an option, choose warm, adjustable lighting. A floor lamp with a dimmer switch allows you to tailor the brightness to your reading preferences and the time of day.

#4. Add Storage

Keep your favorite books within easy reach by incorporating shelves or a small bookcase. A side table or basket is also handy for storing current reads, a cup of tea, or reading glasses.

#5. Personalize Your Space

Infuse your reading nook with personal touches that inspire relaxation and joy. This could include artwork, plants, or decorative items that reflect your style. And of course we'd be remiss if we didn't suggest personalizing your space with a hanging chair. Not only will swinging add to your tranquility, it will add a personal stylish touch that you will look forward to sinking into. And lastly, aromatherapy with scented candles or essential oils can also create a calming ambiance.

Before you know it, this nook will become your sanctuary, encouraging you to unwind, immerse yourself in all of your favorite books. Whether you place it indoors or outdoors, this stylish and comfortable nook will elevate your home and provide endless hours of reading pleasure!
