How do you cure a book hangover/blogging slump/reading slump?
I have experienced all of those at some stage and am sure to again. The cure to the slumps is to change it up. In the case of a blogging slump, I might post about something different. Say about TV or a movie, or an experience I recently had. That way I don't feel too bad about not updating. And honestly, sometimes the only cure is to just push through it. Most of my blogging slumps center around reviewing - sometimes I'm behind on my reading, or I'm simply suffering writers block, not feeling the review I'm trying to write. I might go back to a book I read ages ago and review it instead. I don't feel as pressured by that review, so it helps to clear my mind and get back on track. When it comes to reading slumps, I try to read a different book. I can often start quite a few books before I find one that hooks me the right way. Sometimes though I'm just not in the mood to read at all - blasphemy, I know, but it does happen - and usually I'll binge watch movies or TV shows until the mood shifts. That's pretty much my cure to a book hangover too - binge watching. I do it often and love it. I adore TV and movies as much as I do books, so it's what works best for me. Of course then there's the TV or movie hangovers to contend with...it's a cycle.
Do you suffer from these sorts of hangovers and slumps? Is there a cure that works for you?
Have a great weekend everyone! Happy reading!
