7 reasons to be a bookworm

7 Reasons to be a Bookworm Reading Imagination Hobby

I’ve always loved reading and remember my Mum, my sister and myself each having a book on the go when I was younger. And I’m still a very happy bookworm. More so this last year because of my book reading challenge.

I’d forgotten how nice it is to get lost in a book.  In fact it’s my idea of bliss.  So much that I’ve been making sure I read every day.

7 Reasons to be a Bookworm Reading Imagination Hobby

It’s so much fun being a bookworm and here’s why:

You’ve got an amazing hobby…

…a hobby that opens up a whole world of imagination and discussion

There’s always something to read, even if you’ve read it before!  I’ll never be lost with my Jane Austen collection.

If you’re a parent, you’re showing your child the wonder of reading a book.

You can shut yourself away from the world and relax (at least mentally).

No-one need ever be stuck for a gift idea again!

Reading gives your eyes a rest from the screens that we’re surrounded by every day in modern living.

But there are some side-effects too…

Any bookworm will likely tell you that they’d rather enjoy a good book than take part in a conversation any day.  Unless it’s a discussion about a bookclub read!

…which tends to make them ever so slightly unsociable!

Reading a gripping book?  Then say goodbye to sleep, household chores and normal life in general until it’s finished!

You get that ‘lost’ feeling when you’ve finished a really good book and have to re-connect with real life.

You can’t be friends with anyone who doesn’t understand you love of reading.  Shame really, but books come first…

Are you a bookworm?  Can you think of any other reasons?  I’d love to know!  Comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere. Thanks!

Here’s a past-time for all seasons

Have you ever thought that you need to have a perfect blue sky dotted with clouds in order to cloud watch?

 

Well think again…

It’s a past-time for all seasons!

 

Take this picture that I shared on instagram.  Though there’s not much blue sky, isn’t it beautifully atmospheric and zen-like? (if I say so myself!!)

Granted, I’m not suggesting that you lay on your back on some sodden, cold grass and cloud watch, but just stop a moment.

 

Be in the moment.

 

Take in the clouds as they swirl by… Follow that swirl as it changes form…

 

Although you haven’t got your eyes closed, it’s a great way to slow down and it actually might just be a form of meditation.

 

So, my message to you is ‘do yourself a favour’ and gaze up at the sky; lose yourself in those swirly wirly clouds; relax and be grateful 🙂

 

Why not make it a habit?

And when you do it, let me know how you got on!

 

 

Do you like cloud watching?  What else do you like to do that relaxes you and is a great past-time to adopt?   I’d love to hear from you!  Please comment (below) or tweet me @AllSortsHere.  And come and say hi on social media ~ 

 

Thank you 🙂
