The Sunday Topic 2015 No.2 – Books

January 11, 2015

The Sunday Topic:

I wanted to start a series that I’m going to be running for the whole year one that’s going to inspire people, make people happy and make them realise how beautiful life actually is!! So each Sunday I’m going to be posting a lifestyle post about something. This could be anything from good topics to dark topics that no one ever really talks about. By doing this I hope to open peoples eyes about how beautiful the world is but also how dark and lonely it can be. 


This week’s Sunday topic is Books I chose to do this topic this week as I’ve really been into books recently so I thought that it was an appropriate topic to do. In this instance I mean books that you can hold don’t get me wrong books in general are amazing but I prefer physical ones instead of audible books or reading a book on a tablet for example. 

The good

The majority of people either love reading books or hate reading them I guess there is a middle ground where people will read a book if they have to but that’s not the same thing as wanting to read one. I understand why people don’t see reading as a pastime as most people find it quite boring. I think that they’re such as great way to expand your vocabulary and actually find yourself. 

Okay so books don’t exactly give you as much hope as a religion would but they give me hope because books are often based on thoughts, feelings and real life experiences. Therefore I have hope that if I was ever to encounter some of the problems that are discussed in books I know I’ll somehow be okay because the people who wrote the books always are.

Books generally make me so content as they take me into this imaginary world where I don’t feel like Asia but a person in the story who sits and watches it all unfold. I love how books can instantly make a person feel better as it helps them to forget their life problems for a while. I generally feel so positive and happy after I’ve read a book or finished one and I feel super excited when I start a new book it’s like discovering a new place.

Helps with anxiety 
I really like reading books on public transports especially the tube as I have anxiety which makes especially the tubes heighten my anxiety. However I find that if I have a book not a magazine, paper or a book on a phone but an actual book that I like I’m less likely to have an anxiety attack. This is because all of my focus is on the book which takes me away from my situation of being stuck on a crowded, hot and horrible train.
