5 Reasons to Read!
Nowadays, reading is a very controversial topic. Many youths seem to have forgotten why reading is so important so here are 5 reasons everyone should read!
1. Mental Stimulation
Regularly exercising the brain not only keeps it strong and healthy but has also been proven to slow the progress and prevent Alzheimer's and Dementia.
2. Stress Reduction
Channelling all your concentration onto a book can help distract you from your problems and keep you relaxed. This helps your ability to focus on one thing and block everything else out. Reading spiritual texts can help lower blood pressure as well as providing an overwhelming sense of tranquillity. Self-help books help those suffering mood disorders or mental illnesses.
Every time you read, little bits of information are fed into your brain. These facts can be applied to multiple situations and are just all round good to know!
4. Vocab Expansion
News words are always waiting to be discovered in books of any genre. These help you become articulate and well-spoken which are great life skills. This also helps you spelling which is vital everywhere especially writing in exams!
5. Memory Improvement
By remembering and separating different characters, backgrounds, ambitions and relationships, you force your brain to create new pathways and strengthen existing ones. This helps short-term memory recall and mood stabilisation.
So, apart from just being fun and exciting, books can actually benefit your well-being too! No matter what the genre, whether you like romance or crime, all books can help build on your life skills. Who knew some paper and ink could do so much?
