Here is a question for the Litsy community. I love to read, I really do. That being said I am the IT Director for a company which means 50+ hour weeks most of the time, and stress is no stranger either. I also have the annoying condition of falling asleep if I try to read after 7pm. How do you other busy Littens fit reading into you busy lives?

DGRachel Audiobooks and reading at lunch are the two ways I squeeze in as much book time as I can when I‘m busy/stressed. 2y

Captivatedbybooks During my commute and weekends but if im going to have a busy weekend i try and wake up an hour early to get some reading in and while im cooking. 2y
DGRachel @TheWhiteHatter Yes! Make yourself take a lunch break. I used to work through mine, too, but your brain needs the break from work. Sometimes I just sit at my desk and pull out my book, but if people come by and bug me, I‘ll leave - even if I just sit in my car and read. It will help with your stress levels. #VoiceOfExperience 2y
Notafraidofwords I take a lunch break and I read before bed even if I do fall asleep. 2y
That-Bookish-Hiker I read on my commute and on my lunch break. I tend to fall asleep early too so it‘s hard for me to read durning the week on the evenings but I try to carve out some time on the weekends for reading. 2y
megt I get most of my reading done during my commute and my lunch break. Lunch break reading can sometimes make me feel guilty because a lot of my coworkers work through lunch. But we ARE entitled to the break and getting that little bit of “me” time helps me focus for the rest of the workday. 2y
GypsyKat @DGRachel @Notafraidofwords @That-Bookish-Hiker I‘m adding another vote to taking a lunch break! 👍 2y
CouronneDhiver During my commute, lunch, bath time and just before bed. 2y
Eggs I agree with lunch/brain break; once you start doing it you'll notice a positive change and get in some reading. But I had to escape to my car, or they would find me 2y
emilyhaldi My favorite time to read is early morning with a cup of coffee, and on the morning commute. While my mind is still fresh! 2y
