Recently, I have made it a habit to read a book daily. In my childhood, I was an avid reader of fiction books. But now I have shifted to non-fiction books and I have primarily focused myself to read a few pages of self-help book daily. When I started this habit, I used to read for 30 minutes before I hit the bed, but around a month ago, I have started reading these books an hour after I wake up. And trust me, this has made a huge difference in my life and I am here to share my lessons with you.
