    ‘Read what works for you’ – so simple yet powerful. Sometimes are are reading coz someone recommended something and it may not really work for us/our situation/frame of mind. I really like your tips. Thanks for sharing

    Great tips. Reading definitely helps in improving mental health. Keeps you occupied, improves knowledge, share your thoughts with like minded people and many more benefits. Reading community is a great option.

      Audiobooks are a great choice. I would highly recommend Emily Henry books.

    Reading is the best way to satisfy our curiosity and imagination! Reading allows us to unwind, inspire ourselves and reach our full potential on a personal, professional, or spiritual level. I totally agree on all your pointers.

    I absolutely agree. You should read what you want to read. Not what everyone else is reading even if you are not liking it. Audiobooks are a great idea.

    I love reading in any way. It is a stress breaker for me. But sometimes when I am unable to finish book I get anxious. Right not to read bill is something new for me.

      I get that. It takes time to be comfortable DNF-ing books.

    I so agree to the points you make. Reading works wonders on your mental health be it as a escape route, diversion tactic, improvement or understanding self. I also agree that sometimes we can overwhelm ourselves with the reading – iam on a break now and reading only your run-of-the mill romances when i feel the urge.

    Thats an excellent post Ritu! Bibliophiles like you and me can devour every kind of medium I believe. However PPL who are scared of reading, audio books are a great option for them!

    Audiobooks are something I have never tried. I am guilty of taking up the habit of reading on and off.

      You should definitely try them, Jhilmil. Most of my reads are audiobooks now.
