I ❀️ books! As a #mumofboys & #speechie I am especially passionate about #boysandbooks πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸ»πŸ“š We have 5 very active little men who would happily spend their days climbing our mango tree, flipping on our trampoline or on cycling adventures with their Dad...but they all love to read and that has definitely taken some commitment on our part.
Here are my 5 #toptips for getting your boys and keeping your boys reading πŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ“šπŸ‘€
1️⃣ Make sure the topic interests them! All children..but boys especially HAVE to be interested in what they are reading. This may not be a story or fiction book, it may be a newspaper, catalogue (toy sale ones are always a hit here!), joke book, comic, atlas, magazine or even a manual for a game.
2️⃣ Make time for reading every day and make it non-negotiable. For us that is after dinner wind down time. No TV, no loud games, reading in their rooms or they often choose to read with each other - it’s books or bed!
3️⃣ Make sure they see their parents reading and not just your phone or laptop !!!! Little people need to see big people reading alone, reading with them and reading to them #pickupabook #maketimetoread
4️⃣ Surround them with books! Visit your local libraries regularly, book swap with friends and add β€œsomething to read” to birthday and Christmas #wishlists
5️⃣ Make it fun - encourage books they have read to inspire play opportunities e.g. make your own tree house, cook that pizza, plan that adventure. *Here are my little men’s current reading piles for some boy book inspiration 😊#happyreading

Business Book Club >> I have finally taken the plunge and decided to do a monthly Business Book Club for any Business Women who want to join in. I struggle to make time to read even though I love it, so this will help me and anyone who struggles to get the time to finish a book a month be accountable and get some reading done! November's book selection is Women Rocking Business By Sage Lavine. Order yourself a copy and get involved. I have set up a VIP FB group to discuss the books and network if you want to join the conversation. Link In Bio to Book Club Blog Post for more info. Happy Reading!β €

#bookstagram That collection of books I have by the bedside table is ever growing. They call to me every evening when I collapse into bed and ignore them for the squares of the gram, and the scrolling and the scrolling..... Plenty of soul in this here room but I will feel soulless if I don't actually start reading soon! #maketimetoread πŸ“š#putdownthephone πŸ“±

QOTD : What is your favourite scary horror story? One of my favourite Stephen King books is Misery 😰 All writers want people to love their characters as much as they do... but Annie Wilkes takes it to a terrifying level 😣

TIME

Time can be precious, we don’t have enough, we are always trying to squeeze things into time. There is always time to make if you really want too, you may while away an hour or so on your phone (like me this evening on social media) without realising it. You may decide to crash and watch tv and time is gone. If that helps you zone out and have time for you then there is nothing wrong with it as long as your finding some you time and are relaxed. I was lucky to be gifted this beauty of a timer this week, it actually measures around 15 minutes so not long, but long enough to chill and start you off on some good music, a nap, a meditation just some little me or you time. Either way it’s very pretty too - taking pride of place in my me space ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #timeisnow #maketimeforme #maketimeforyou #maketimeforfitness #maketimeforlife #maketimefortimeout #maketimeforfun #maketimeforhealth #maketimetorelax #maketimetonourish #maketimeslowdown #maketimetobeyou #maketimetobehappy #maketimetobesilly #maketimetobegrateful #maketimeforyourmind #maketimetolearnnewthings #maketimetoread

Diving into this Audio book today!! What does the 10X rule mean to you?? I never realized the importance of reading and what books you should be reading. Fueling your mind with the best information for your goals is so important and keeps your mind active, it provides motivation, its provides a direction and fuel!
I never read before and if I did it was mindless reading. I still struggle to make the time to read, but when I do I feel so much better and intrigued to dive into my life and put these books into action!!

Here's my six year old squeezing 5 minutes reading practice in the car while we wait to pick up her sister from an after-school club. Whenever, wherever is our reading motto!
