Reading as Self Care

There’s a lot going on in the world, friends. From the injustices at the U.S. border, to flooding in the Midwest, to rising tensions with Iran and the earthquakes in nearby Ridgecrest…at times, it can get pretty overwhelming and anxiety-inducing.

In times like these, it can be important to hold on to the things that give you joy and, if you’re a book lover, you probably already know that reading is definitely one of those things. Curling up with a book can provide an opportunity to unplug, and a temporary escape into an entirely different world.
