Reading magazines is one of the thing I do when I feel stress and just want to have a “me” and quiet time. I know a lot of women go out to shop, dine or treat themselves to a relaxing massage, well I do this too if we have extra budget to splurge but reading magazine is free so this is the practical way for me to be stress free.
My addiction to magazine started when I got my first paycheck. When I was still single I usually buy fashion and relationship related magazine like Cosmopolitan, Mega and Preview. That is when I became shopahalic LOL and some celebrity magazine like YES and OK, I give away some of it.
When I got married, my interests suddenly switched to making our house homey and cozy and to learn how to cook simple recipes. This is the reason why I chose Good Housekeeping and Real Living magazines. I love this magazine so much.
Sometimes, I also buy Entrepreneur magazines (it depends on the topics on the cover). Through this magazine, I found out about small businesses/dealerships that I can start with minimal capital.
When I got pregnant 2 years after enjoying a married life, I switched to Smart Parenting magazines. It is very helpful for first time moms like me. I also like Working mom magazine.
Now, since I want my family to be healthy, I buy Health Today and Health Men’s and Health Women’s Magazine. These magazines are helpful to keep me motivated in being fit and healthy.
I also have Reader’s Digest. This magazine have customer satisfaction surveys in almost every issue and that they always come up with a promo or raffle where you can have a chance to win cash prizes and even a brand new car. After a year of subscription and a year of joining though,I stopped and just buy it whenever the topics on the cover interests me.
So, how about you what are the magazines you like to read? or do you read magazine? why and why not?
