Exercise isn’t always about your body — your brain needs some fitness activities, too! In a world of writing and reading in 140 characters or scanning hundreds of articles or images in a short amount of time, my brain has completely become incapable of sitting down and focusing on a single book.
I have absolutely no attention span anymore and it’s something I want to get back! There is quite a lengthy list of books I’ve started in the last couple of years, only to stop about half-way through and never finish. I started reading a short story the other day — only about 52 pages — and let me tell you, I feel like it is SO. HARD. to sit and concentrate.
My brain needs exercise as badly as my body! I came across the Reading Challenge 2015 on Popsugar.com and thought it was a great starting point for getting back into reading and strengthening my comprehension and attention skills! I have created a page for it, which you can find on my home page — I’ll be adding to it throughout the year to see how far I get!
