These sound like excellent action points. Have you thought about precisely how you will try to manage your time more effectively with regard to reading? It might be an idea to set yourself some specific goals – for instance, reading for 20 minutes and then reviewing what you’ve read. Or perhaps, aiming to increase your reading speed through regular practice?

Thanks for your comment Laura. My main problem when it comes to reading is that I can’t concentrate for a long time on a long text that is why I figured that regular pauses would be a good idea. Reviewing is an excellent suggestion as this would help me understand better what I have read.

I really do think that setting goals and reviewing after you’ve read a section of text will make a difference. Start small in terms of time goals and then build up as you improve. Perhaps you could also look again at where you are reading. Are you in a place where you can be easily distracted? What about your phone and email – are they tempting you to check them? Good luck.
