Ten Benefits of Reading

In the age of internet, nobody has the time to read unfortunately! Books are rapidly becoming a thing of the past so I thought why not list out the benefits of reading and make it bit more appealing for the non-readers? Let's get right into it!

1. Improve concentration

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

2. Vocabulary builder

You may find it hard to convey how you feel if you don't know enough words. More reading will automatically result in new words added to your vocabulary. You will notice it over time.

3. Topic of conversation

Talking about books is a really helpful way to communicate with someone. You may talk about their favorite book, genre, author, and so on. This will help you carry out an effortless chat.

4. In-depth knowledge

Search on google and find the answer: this is shallow approach to learning. Reading, on the other hand, takes time, thus bringing to you an in-depth understanding of the subject in hand.

5. Exercise your brain

Reading is nourishment for the mind. The brain is like a muscle and when it is put to use, we feel good and informed. If you don't exercise your brain regularly, it is going to get lazy.

6. Encourage questions

Books make you think. They even provoke you. New, interesting questions race through your mind and you cannot stop but ponder all the time. It is true that when you read more, you dare ask more.

7. Enter new ideas

With questions come solutions. By reading, you sort of gain access to the mind of the author. Sometimes, the answer will come from the book itself or, you yourself will get to it sooner or later.

8. Better writing

If you read daily, you will notice how you have achieved better focus, new words, questions, their answers and new perspectives. Thus, ultimately, you may also become a fine writer.

9. Low-cost fun

As books are getting cheaper, reading has become an inexpensive form of enjoyment. In fact, most successful people read not only to gain worldly insights but also to entertain themselves.

10. Reduce stress

Here is a cool fact: reading can 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.
