Having the inclination to read books is a gift that keeps giving! Sadly, there are many who don't. For them, we've been trying to find interesting ways like infographics, and help them 'experience' great books and 'download' their wisdom.

At Choose To Thinq, we are nutty about reading. So we often get asked: “How do I building a reading habit in my child?”
Based on our experiences as readers, parents, and uplevelers who study habits, change, and innovation, here are five specific ways in which you could influence the creation of such a habit in a child.Read More
- Read. Read. Read. If you've lost the habit, rediscover it. If you didn't have the habit, develop it.
- Listen but actively. Listen to music, to podcasts, to people. But actively. Don't let it just run in the background. Pay attention to the different instruments, the arguments, the things that people say.
- Ask Questions. Questions are a great way to exercise your brain, for it gets you to analyse and synthesise information.
- Move. Physical activity gets your brain moving as well. Take up a sport, play with children, go dancing, go trekking, or just use the stairs.
- Try something new. Otherwise you'll be stuck in the same routines and ruts. Break patterns. Eat something new. Go to a new place. Try a new product. Say hello to a new person. It may be scary. It may flop. It may not result in anything. But it's a key step to being curious and thus getting smarter.
