Realize it’s a spiritual AND physical project. It’s a miracle and blessing from Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) that you’re able to absorb the Qur’an. If you want to take advantage of this blessing, you should be in a position to receive it and therefore strive physically to achieve it and strive spiritually to get the maximum benefit.
