We start the day by jumping out of bed, and we race against time to always "do what we need to do" throughout the day. Maybe in order to achieve this, we sleep less, eat less, and experience ourselves less. At the end of the day, we have the opportunity to listen to our own voice in only a few hours.So, should he seize this opportunity by falling asleep on the soft couch? Should we be immersed in fast-flowing visuals on color screens? Or by sitting at the beginning of the book that we always wanted to read but couldn't find the time to open the cover?

However, it is possible to sprinkle reading into every moment of life and experience how productive time is.
