Increase the Speed at Which you Read
Thanks to email and the Internet, I’m always reading. But I find myself skimming things to save time and then I worry that I’ve missed something so I go back and read it again and find that (yes) I did miss several things. And now I’ve taken up far more time than I should have. But I’m solving this catch-22 thanks to the app Reading Trainer.
I’m using Reading Trainer to double my reading speed while improving retention. Yes, it can be done! Here’s my take on it – when I’m snowboarding at top speed, my brain is working just as hard on focusing to keep me from falling. The same goes for reading fast. The words are moving at a fast pace, allowing no time for me to drift off and lose focus.
Reading Trainer uses eye exercises so my eyes will move that fast and gives me strategies to retain the information and recall it easier. So far, I’m noticing an improvement. It takes me less time to get all the info I need from those way-too-long emails I receive and I’m able to remember it until long after I’ve shut down my email for the evening.
I’m even trying out my new reading skills while reading articles and posts. I might even get daring enough to grab an actual printed book in the hopes of finishing it in a reasonable amount of time.
I encourage you to try Reading Trainer for yourself. I definitely feel better when I read more efficiently. Who knows what you can do with that extra reading time?
