Favorite Occupation: Reading
How often do you engage in your favorite occupation?
“Most days (4+ times a week)”
What do you get out of it?
“For me, I know I can gain so much and can learn so much from reading. There is pretty much a book on anything, so if I want to learn about something, I know that there is a book that can help me learn. If I just want to stop my mind from wandering, reading allows me to focus my attention, relax and unwind.”
What does it mean to your lyfe?
“I love that reading can be as easy or as difficult as I want it to be and that I can invest as much or as little time as I want. Reading is something I have always enjoyed and I love that it can be graded. For me, reading is part of my self-care, it is time that I can take for myself to bring some joy to my every day. However, although for me personally I use it as an individual activity, I love that there is also a social aspect in discussing books that I have read with my friends and family.”
Reading is definitely something that I want to do more of. What book are you currently reading or what is your favorite book?
