Hi, my name is Flavia and I’m an enthusiastic reader from Germany. You can find me mostly on Twitter under the username flaviaaalouise.
We are 20 hours into this readathon and for some of us it won’t have gone as well as we had hoped.
Between doing lots of lab work last week and starting an internship this past week I haven’t really gotten to read that much which frustrates me a lot so I can very much relate.
And I know that especially in a readathon format not reaching your goals can really get you down.
So you have lots of options of how to address that frustration. I mean you could just flat out give up on this whole endeavor and that is super valid. There is so much going on in this world. So if it doesn’t serve you, let it go!
So let’s assume that is not what you want to do. You’ve been excited about this event for weeks and you want to persevere. Alright I like your approach!
First of all, you still have 4 hours. That’s a lot of time. Get reading! Tell the other people around you, you need that time for yourself. Throw your phone in the bin or just download Forest or a similar app that allows you to focus better.
Other option. This readathon is not JUST abot reading. Engage with us on this blog or social media, meet new people and just be excited about the fact that it unites so many people all over the world.
And if the readathon is going great for you, all the better for you! 🙂
