Self Care Challenge Day 10: Books

21 Day Self Care Challenge Day Ten

Hey lovely person!

Is it day 10 already? Where does the time go?

When was the last time you read a book for pleasure?

I love books, I love to read and my bookshelves are stacked with books I’ve bought and not read yet.

Why is that?

Well for me, it’s because of technology. I find in the evenings I can get lost down a social media rabbit hole, emerging hours later, blinking at the clock and thinking ‘what just happened?’. Youtube & Instagram are the WORST for me – what are the ones you are stuck on?

And reading in the day, even on an ‘official’ break seems so decadent!

There are 2 things we’ve looked at on this challenge already which might help you with this – lunch break from day 3 and Amish hour from day 2.

So to get you started on reading just for pleasure, today I want you to start a wishlist for books.

Start a reading list, and find at least 5 books that appeal to you, and then get the one that looks the most interesting.

I have a one hour train ride to work + an hour train ride back – this gives me ‘me time’ to read a book. I am reading a great one at the moment called ‘You are Enough’ best book on self confindence + self imagine + self love.

You’re going to LOVE tomorrow task, it’s all about relaxation and stress relief.

Stay tuned for Day 11.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

  1. I love when God is so personal! Just today I picked up 2 books from the library I had placed on hold, and currently trying to decide which one to read 1st! As I laugh with the Lord, I ask Him 5? He made it easy to make a list! As for the media… FB is my worst because I do an encouragement ministry. It is easy to get caught up trying not to leave anyone out, especially since the FB live started. Looking forward to posting on this one, Lovely A!

  2. I spent the entire day yesterday reading ‘The Code Of The Extraordinary Mind’ yesterday, because I didn’t bring any digital devices to the hospital (my grandma is having a cataract operation), but today I’m totally hanging around with my laptop 😁. But I hope I’ll finish the book at least this time around.

      1. Oh thanks!!! I self-published and I have the ebook version online. You can use the link up there to see guidelines on how to get it. I’d appreciate a review pls. Thanks a lot + you can write a book too.

  3. I get stuck on Pinterest. I spend a lot of my kid free (between midnight and 3am) time looking at pins. I look at recipes, quotes, decoration ideas for the house, remodeling ideas, birthday ideas, parenting tips, blogging tips, and a multitude of random hoopla. I do have some books that I have yet to read. I like this post and will be trying it during my “kid free” time tonight!
