Support your eyes
Before you spend your summer reading hours, make sure your eyes are healthy. Do moogaadin headaches or eye civilized while you read, Dr. Brodie said. Keep your eyes peeled, especially if you are over 40 or if you see multilingual writing. Another idea: if you have a book that goes farther and farther to read it. "People say their hands are getting smaller," he said. Get a doctor & # 39; s trust in your prescription, and pick up two expensive glasses for reading glasses at the pharmacy. Dr. Brodie says.

Dr. Brodie also recommends taking reading breaks every hour or so with your eyes closed.
Make it a habit
If you are on vacation, give your smartphone a break to improve focus. Maryanne Wolf, author of "Come Home: Reading Minds in the Digital World," says that screen photography has become a mainstay of reading, and people don't always see the impact. She told us she wasn't even convinced it had an impact on the focus until they tried to re-read your favorite previous book. "I am not able to self-identify now."
To resolve this, Dr. Wolf has made it a habit to read: She reads 20 minutes every day, and 10 days later her concentration improves. It also recommends avoiding the screen first thing in the morning and before bed. Limit screen use for children under 5; allow it to be neutral for children 5 and older. There is no need to completely ban the screen, says Dr. Wolf said – kids will only need the technology even more.
To foster good reading habits, keep it regular but fun. Judson Brewer, director of research and creativity at Brown University's Mindfulness Center, said, "If you get bored with what you are reading, a lot of the time spent on it doesn't make you a great reader. . " – they need to see you in books in order to become readers. When traveling this summer, plan a night out for reading and therapy, if you are with family or friends.
Use your library

Or offer activities such as games, characters, and author visits. Your library card may authorize Libby, a program that allows you to view eBooks and audio books, space, and sample reading. You can also use the website of your library as a place to download or download.
