Call me a daydreamer and I’ll say I am. I always love to picture myself as somebody else, creating a story about myself, whereas the sky is the limit and there is no forbidden space of whoever I’ll be. Sometimes, I found the magic of all those said in reading.
When I read something, either it’s a romcom or biography, I tend to put myself in the character’s shoes, wondering what it would be like to be someone that I’m reading. That’s why I love reading the books better when they come out as movies. Sometimes what I picture in mind is rather different when it comes alive as a motion picture.
I take reading as a pleasure, something that I love to do in a lonely evening with a glass of chilled white wine. It relaxes me after a long day and yes, it helps to release my stress.
Try to read a book. You might find leisure and joy in it.
