Reading books is actress Rica Peralejo’s most treasured hobby. She actually spends more time reading than lingering on social media.
On her free time, Peralejo enjoys buckling down to pages and pages of any book she has on hand, she shared on her Instagram post yesterday, Oct. 12, where she also showed what she was reading, the novel “Gilead” by Marilynne Robinson.
“Been extra lazy to post on social media. Aside from that not everything has to be heard online, I just generally like my life with my books a lot,” she said. “And the more I use my phone I also know the shorter my ability to stay in something becomes because my brain is being trained with short bursts of entertaining activity.”
Peralejo also explained what she recently learned about “task switching.”
“This is not made up. I read it as a study in Brad Huddleston’s book entitled Digital Cocaine and it is called ‘task switching.’ We task switch as an outcome of addiction,” she said. She also asked her fans to check out a podcast show where she spoke about social media.
“We talked about our social media dilemma on ‘Anything Goes’ with Joe and Carla podcast and episode is up now. We confess our digital sins there and repentance, as well. Generally I share my own crossroads when it comes to the reality behind these social networks and what I have been doing about them,” she revealed.
As part of encouraging people to read, she enumerated some titles she has been busy with, which include “Montessori Toddler” by Simone Davies, “Mother Culture” by Karen Andreola, “The New Koreans” by Michael Breen, “The Call” by Os Guinness, and “Consider This” by Karen Glass. JB
