Have you ever daydreamed about inviting James Clear, the author of “Atomic Habits,” out for a cup of coffee and picking his brain on improving your daily habits? Have you wondered what the Dalai Lama would advise you to do so you can live a more deeply meaningful life daily?

You can. Seventeen years ago, I heard someone talk about reading a book a week. I decided to try it. First I read a book a month. Then I went to two books a month. Finally, I jumped in all the way and committed to reading one book a week for an entire year. I have never looked back. You can read 52 books per year by reading about an hour a day. If you switch between books and audiobooks, this is very doable. You will be transformed in the process.

Research shows that people who read a book for just 30 minutes each day not only get to hang out with giant thinkers in their own homes but also gain a wide range of other benefits. It’s been shown that reading “increases empathy, builds vocabulary, prevents cognitive decline, reduces stress, aids sleep, and alleviates depression.” https://www.healthline.com/health/benefits-of-reading-books #increases-empathy
