The Sunday Times Style IS my definitive fashion bible. It was the first fashion magazine I ever read, and will always be one of my favourites. Although I’m not too keen on the new format they’ve got now. I know it’s a recession and all, but to make it more user friendly they’ve cut a lot what made it so great in the first place.
Anyhows, I read today that reading a book for just 6 minutes can reduce your stress levels by 68%. Obviously I don’t think anyone tries to read in 6 minute bursts, but reading is amazingly relaxing. And it’s great to put you in a sleep frame of mind also, which is why you should try and read before bed.
ALAS the levels of literacy in school are awful, no-one reads anymore (and that glorified excuse for toilet paper, Twilight doesn’t count). I’m a voracious reader, I lap it up like a man thirsting for water in the desert (oh yeah I went there!). I read the nutritional information on my cereal box for fun when I was a yoof, before I even was aware of fat content and sugars and wotnot.
Ever read a book that inspired you in so many ways? I have, and I shall list some at a later date. But I found this on a blog and I JUST WANT IT SO BAD!
