Read (or Listen to) Books

Who has time to read? You do — even if it's just for a few minutes each day. Trade in one of the so-so TV shows you watch each week to dive into a good book. If you have an e-reader and a smart phone, download the e-reader's app, such as the Nook or Kindle app, so that you can read books on your phone during spare moments. If you really don't have time to pick up a book, buy or download some audio-books to listen to while in the car or in bed.
