Books For When Anxiety Makes it Hard to Concentrate
Books can make for a wonderful escape in anxious times – but sometimes, in those times, it’s hard to concentrate for long, especially when we first pick up a book.
That’s when a particular type of read can come in really handy: the book that comes in short chunks.
Maybe it’s in the form of a diary, or letters, or maybe the chapters are really short. We can pick it up, even if we don’t feel like it, and force ourselves to read a page or two.
And then, out of nowhere the magic happens: a really good book will lure us in with short chapters but then keep our attention and draw us in so that we keep turning pages and forget to check our phones.
