Readaxation is a term created by Nicola Morgan author of over 100 books including the bestseller Blame my Brain. Nicola’s working definition of readaxation is the act of reading for pleasure as a deliberate strategy for reducing stress levels. It acknowledges that relaxation is not a luxury but an essential part of physical and mental wellbeing and health. Readaxation crucially includes the act of achieving flow or engagement which has positive consequences for reducing stress levels and improving wellbeing.
During this period of isolation and separation our need for activities which provide us with flow are greater than ever. Here is a short list of some of the FREE and EASY resources for parents/carers to access
