Be able that when you lead yourself in prayer that the sources you are habitually regularly reading that at least you know their meaning and can connect in yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two, learn something new every day from the Quran, memorize even if it is but a word a day, if all you can do is half an hour a day that you open the Quran and you memorize a new verse from solothurn cat for example.

verses of the Holy Land be recited on dumb deaf ears where you're unable to hear it unwilling to listen to it unable and unwilling to actively embrace it into your life.
