With everything that is going on in the world currently, I find that getting lost in a really good book can be rather beneficial for one’s mental health. I already am an introvert and I spend my life indoors but there is this weird thing that seems to happen in the brain when someone tells you, you can’t do something, that it’s against the rules. By golly, I want to do that! For the first time in ages, I want to leave the house because I am being told that I cant. Like when you were a kid and your mom told you not to touch something, that you can’t touch that thing… all you want to do is touch it. Though, when you did touch the thing you weren’t supposed to, you probably got into trouble with your mom. Was it worth it?
You know, there’s a great way to escape and leave your current reality for a bit without putting anyone in danger. Read a book! I have my TBR all ready to go and I have been reading like a crazy person. I have always been a bookworm and a major geek but in this time of uncertainty there is nothing like returning to a world you love. It’s like a hug, a safe place to get lost. Not to mention how wonderful it feels to hold a whole world in your hands, plus… books smell amazing. 🙂
So, what are you guys doing in this time of isolation? How are you escaping while staying safe?
I hope all is well with you.
Until next time,
