If you have distracting thoughts or a wandering mind while reading, this could be the answer: meditation once or twice a day. The articled states mind wandering is a normal process that everyone experiences. I personally notice this when I’m reading (even if it’s an interesting subject). In addition to regular meditation, I find that approaching a reading task in sections is helpful. At the beginning of each paragraph make mental goal to complete it without distracting thoughts, and then repeat.
