“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you’ll go.” – Dr Seuss
Even if you have read one good book in your life, you will know that reading gives a sense direction, insight, fun, and escapism. The benefits of reading are not limited to these points, but the reasons in this article are the most powerful.
DEVELOPS YOUR VERBAL ABILITIES:
It is a well-known fact that those who read tend to have a more varied range of words to express how they feel and to get their point across. This increases significantly with the more books you consume, giving you a higher level of vocabulary to use in everyday life.
IMPROVES YOUR MEMORY:
When you read, you have more time to think. Reading allows your mind to pause for comprehension and insight, unlike watching a movie or listening to a podcast. Doing this regularly keeps your memory sharp and your learning capacity alert.
IMPROVES YOUR FOCUS AND CONCENTRATION:
Unlike blog posts and news articles, sitting down with a book takes long periods of focus and concentration, which at first is hard to do. Being fully engaged in a book involves closing off the outside world and immersing yourself into the text, which over time will strengthen your attention span.
Studies show that reading reduces stress. Reading allows your heart rate to slow down and ease tension in your muscles.
READING MAKES YOU SMARTER
Books offer an excellent wealth of learning. Statistics show that heavy readers tend to display a greater knowledge of how things work and those with books at home have been strongly linked to academic achievement.
