I used to be a very avid reader, devouring books upon books (fiction and non fiction). Reading transports me somewhere else for a little while and it is a pleasant feeling. I have always had a big imagination so it is not hard for me to visualise the places, characters, scenes, especially when a book is so well written that the descriptions help it even more.
But over the last few years, I noticed a big decline into my reading habits. I blame social media, smartphones and mostly me for not being able to switch off once in a while. So, instead of grabbing a book before bed, I would be scrolling through the different apps on my phone to see what was going on with the world, read blog posts here and there and check out many images to collect for my boards on Pinterest. And yes, let's just say I never had the best of sleep afterwards.
