If in your free time you like to read outdoors or at home, then try to get the maximum pleasure from what you read. After all, a person often applies information obtained from books in everyday life.
- - Book
- - Free time
Don't read difficult pieces when you're tired. This mainly applies to school textbooks, didactic materials, scientific literature. If you are too tired, your brain will not be able to take in all the information as it should. There is a high probability that after reading, you will not be able to retell the text.
Do not be distructed. Position your body in the most comfortable position and try to fully concentrate on the book. Turn off your music, radio and TV. Leave a noisy room.
Some people have a secret place where they can sit for several hours all alone and enjoy the work.
Take notes. If you like to fully delve into the plot, then it will be useful to take notes. Write down key points in your laptop, phone, or simply underline text in a book. So you can, in case of your forgetfulness, return to the text you read and remember the main branches of the plot.
Read only those works in which you are interested. Life is too short to be wasted on books that do not bring you pleasure. Each person loves a particular genre. Someone reads classical literature, someone fiction. The main thing is to benefit from what you read and apply the information received in life.
Reread your favorite books often. This may seem strange, because you already know the ending and characters of the work. But, in a year, your outlook on life could have changed. Now the actions, the way of life, the actions described in the book can affect you from a different point of view. You will be able to reconsider the actions of the heroes from a different angle, and understand how much you have grown spiritually and emotionally.
