Readathon is not a solo sport. Whether it’s supporting each other in our reading, or getting support from loved ones (yes, this includes #readathonpets) it’s very helpful to have a good #ReadathonSupport team. Something as little as reminding you to get up and move around can be a serious life saver. I’ll never forget, my first Readathon, I sat too long, foot went numb, and I tripped trying to get to the bathroom!
If you find yourself struggling this Readathon, feel free to reach out for some #ReadathonSupport and we’ll be there. If you have a good #ReadathonSupport team at home, remember to shout them out. Whether it’s a pet reminding you to get some movement and feed them, a child reminding you that you need to eat, a significant other making you coffee (or tea), or even a houseplant reminding you the importance of staying hydrated, be sure to shout them out.
Never forget, self-care is important. This is a long event and it’s only really enjoyable if you’re making sure to take care of yourself. Reading late at night loses its luster if you’re also starving. Reading throughout the day gets difficult if you forget to drink some water and “overdose” on caffeine. And if you need a nap, need to call it a day/night, you do so. Your health matters. And if you even need some encouragement, just let us know. One of my favorite parts of Readathon is cheering on others.
