My two tips would be get a kindle and use audiobooks. Can read a whole book each week just by listening on the commute / in shower etc.

Definitely second the kindle! I also try to walk to a nice spot and read there for a bit to combine my outside time with reading time

like

If I wake up early (like 7) and am working from home I read in the morning, otherwise around 3min-1h before sleep until my eyes get tired. I am living alone so that's for sure an advantage, gives me quiet environment with plenty of time to read.

Agree with what everyone is saying! I also like to use Blinkist to see if I want to commit to the full read. They have copy and audio and are getting into content — like mini podcast style.

My husband and I have been having a very hard time with our marriage since our baby was born. She just turned one. Our relationship has gotten better compared to a year ago, but no where near to before our baby was born. We fight almost everyday, mostly about things related to our baby. After the baby’s bedtime, we really don’t do anything together. I am just so sad and depressed over the situation. I still love him but man he is so annoying and I dislike so many things about him
