Staying Positive in Lockdown 2: Electric Boogaloo | Self-Care

You Need to Give Audiobooks a Try - Top Five Audiobooks on Audible

Dear anyone who enjoys reading: you have to give audiobooks a go. No no, don’t scrunch your face up, hear me out. I didn’t think I’d enjoy audiobooks; I’ve never gotten on with eBooks, so the thought of a non-physical book made me stir in my seat and mutter ‘no, no, it’s not for me’, […]

Does anyone else feel like this is a bit of an extrovert’s world? No shade at those 50% of people who are extroverts. I mean, look at the phrase ‘living life to the full’.
