How to Create Reading Goals as a Busy Mom

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 394

Are you looking to turn reading into a dedicated hobby? In this episode of the Purpose Driven Mom Show, Cara talks about the significance of hobbies for mothers, with a special emphasis on reading. 

Hobbies are a great way to spend time doing things that you find enjoyable. They are meant to take you away from the stress of your day and allow you to do something exciting. Cara shares how it is important for moms to have hobbies and to find ways to stick to them because moms deserve to take time back and have something for themselves. One of these hobbies is reading and Cara provides some tips to make reading a hobby that can be integrated into daily life.

Reading as a hobby is only possible if you are setting intentional goals that are achievable. Base your goals around when you want to finish a book. If you want to get the book done in one month, break it down by deciding how many days a week you want to read and how many pages it will take you to finish. This allows you to set realistic goals that don’t make you feel overwhelmed or make you lose the love for the hobby. 

Create a solid plan where you feel motivated and excited. As a mom, you deserve time to yourself, so choose a hobby that you truly love! Take a listen to learn more.
