Ten Benefits of Reading

In the age of internet, attention span is minimum so nobody has the patience to read. Hence, books are rapidly becoming a thing of the past unfortunately. But I thought why not list out the benefits of reading? Maybe I convert non-readers into readers who knows?

ten benefits advantages of reading books why read

1. Improve concentration

Reading a book can boost your ability to focus because it is a thinking process. The purpose of reading is to connect the ideas on the book to what you already know.

2. Vocabulary builder

Sometimes it is hard to convey feelings because you don't know the right words. But, more reading will add new words to your vocabulary which will help in conversation.

3. In-depth knowledge

To find merely answers on Google is a shallow approach to learning. Reading a book, on the other hand, is much more sophisticated; it takes time.

4. Exercise the brain

Reading a book is nourishment for the mind. The brain is like muscle; when it is put to use, we feel good. Thus, exercise it daily; don't ignore your mental health.

5. Encourage question

Books make you think; new interesting questions race through your mind and you cannot stop but wonder all the time. Remember, questioning is the door to knowledge.

6. Enter new ideas

By reading, you acquire virtual access into the mind of the author. The answer to your question will come from the book itself or you will get to it yourself by formulating an original solution.

7. Better writing

If you read daily, you will have achieved much more focus, an elaborate vocabulary and strange new perspectives. Thus, ultimately, you will have become fluent at writing as well.

8. Low-cost fun

As books are getting cheaper especially kindle books reading has become for many an inexpensive enjoyment. Fact is, most successful people read, not only to gain worldly insight, but also to entertain themselves.

9. Reduce stress

Apart from helping your mind, reading can also relax your body by lowering your heart rate and easing the tension in your muscles according to a 2009 study at the University of Sussex.

10. Improve memory

Human brains tend to forget when they grow older. But, reading slows down ageing of the brain. The avid readers are claimed to be free from the fatal disease like Alzheimer's.
