31 Days of Wellbeing: Day 4

Day 4 of 31 Days of Wellbeing

Hope everyone managed to let something go yesterday 🙂

Your wellbeing challenge today is a lovely one if you enjoy this activity. Some of you may be do this everyday already, therefore this could be an easy one! However, if it’s not an activity you have done much since studying, it could feel like a challenge…

“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” ― Charles William Eliot

Today, please pick up a book or Kindle and read (and I don’t mean Daily Mail articles!). I want you do this at a time when you would normally either be watching Netflix series back to back (guilty!) or when you would be scrolling mindlessly on your mobile phone. These activities tend to disengage your brain or have you looking at other people’s ‘glamourous’ lives and picking fault at your own. Reading can engage your brain, transport you to a magical world and get you thinking about important issues. All great things for your wellbeing!

If you struggle with reading and feel like you don’t have the time or want to make the time, start off with just one chapter per night before you go to sleep. That’s all I do at the moment, and it’s enough to take me away from the mindless Instagram scrolling for 10-15 minutes. I swear this makes it easier to relax and go to sleep as well.

Happy reading!
