Casual reading has become a luxury that most people can’t afford–literally and figuratively. The cost of books and magazines, demanding schedules, shorter days and the never ending to do list can make it impossible to take a break.
Sometimes, like children, we need a little nudge in the eight direction. Looking forward to thumbing through your favorite magazine can be a good way to encourage you or someone you know to take short breaks. Now before you trash my idea, let me say, after cancer I know for sure taking regular breaks are imperative to good health and wellness.
I’ll leave you with that thought and without further ado, here are some of my favorite magazines to give and receive.
Consumer Reports Magazine This magazine makes the top of my list of good buys. You can never go wrong with this magazine. Consumer Reports is an independent, nonprofit organization that works side by side with consumers to create a fairer, safer, and healthier world. It was founded in 1936 when advertising flooded the market, and confused the consumer.
For 80 years, this magazine has provided evidence-based product testing and ratings, rigorous research, hard-hitting investigative journalism, public education, and steadfast policy action on behalf of consumers’ interests. This is good fit for everyone!
HGTV Magazine. This magazine is one of my favorite magazines. We happen to be in the middle of renovating our space, but even if you’re not, you’ll find useful tips and inspiration. This is the gift that keeps on giving (in the best possible way).
Magnolia Journal If you’ve been following me then you know I am a huge Fixer-Upper fan. I love all things Joanna Gaines. This magazine is pretty and inspiring. The downside is that it’s a little pricey in-store IMO. But, right now, you can get a one year subscription for $20.00 by going directly to Magnolia Market.
Rolling Stone Magazine. Still one of the best music magazines on the market. The journalists’ over there no how to tell a captivating story.
Fishing Magazines. Here’s a list of fishing magazines in case you know a fisherman who would like that.
AARP. This is a great magazine for someone above of the age of 55. It covers a variety of issues from traveling to life insurance. You will not be disappointed by this.
