There is probably no single greater habit to develop as a human being than to read daily. If you say, “I’m not a reader”, well guess what? No one comes out of the womb with an affinity for reading. Become a reader. Start acting like one. I was utterly unimpressed and uninterested in books until I became an adult and started force-feeding myself books. If you don’t like reading yet, you should do the same. It’s called an “acquired taste”. You probably have one for some bizarre food that no one else likes but you. You can do the same for books, and you should.
While you’re force-feeding yourself books, you might as well read about things that will make you a better human. I prefer non-fiction, but even a good novel now and again with the right message can be helpful.
Try to always be reading at least one book about lofty dreams and how to achieve them. That includes autobiographies by successful people. Reading those types of books will prevent you from becoming a soulless drone without big dreams.
One last note: Avoid the dark and dreary stuff. It’s not helpful.
