One day I decided to stop reading social media in general. This choice was not a firm and scheduled commitment but something due to general boredom and a feeling of emptiness. I needed to enrich the contents, the information, looking for something helpful to myself. While I was reading one of the conventional ‘business’ social media, I came across to a fabulous article, which gave me advice about self-improvement and at that precise moment, I discovered I remember I read further items from other websites, telling about valuable topics and I remember that I was so excited, thereby I learned a lot that day. Besides the fact that I had to learn and improve my English, I needed to find something captivating, that could keep me up engaged and hungry of knowledge. So, instead of wasting time swiping among content-free posts, I chose to augment the quality of my reading.

I know this is a simple habit, but it can turn to a real betterment, my satisfaction in reading something. Now I am craving to read and my ‘old me’ .. bored by swiping tedious posts, is completely disappeared. So, why not choose something interesting and helpful for yourself; pieces of advice, articles on self-improvement, or how to overcome a problem or new ideas, like
Open your mind, change some (bad) habits and enrich your life.
