If you’re anything like me, burning half of an hour online is second nature, it happens without a thought. I pull out my phone or open up my computer and bounce from website to website, check the news, adjust my fantasy football lineup, clear a few emails, delve into a twitter trend (or 3), and the time evaporates. It’s shocking the amount of reading I can do simply by opening a book before I open my computer. And all you have to give up is some artificial dopamine inducing frenetic blue screen time. You can easily read a half-hour per day (and probably more) without making any real concessions. Start with 10 minutes. Start with a book that’s short or easy to read. Just open the book before you turn on your screen.
