Reading Is Good For You – Here Are The Reasons Why

Reading Is Good For You

Stress is a growing challenge in our daily life. Research by Sussex University has shown that six minutes of silent reading can reduce stress rates by 68 per cent. Reading usually works better and quicker than other approaches like listening to music, going for a walk, or sitting down for a cup of coffee. Here is why reading is good for you.

Knowledge

Anything you’re reading fills your mind with new bits of knowledge, so you never know when it’s handy. The more experience you have, the more well-equipped you will be to tackle every challenge you will ever encounter.

Additionally, here’s a bit of thought: if you’re ever in desperate situations, note that even though you can lose everything else from your life, your possessions, your money, even your health, information can never be taken away.

Stronger Logical Thinking Skills

Have you ever read an excellent mystery novel, and solved the mystery before you finished the book? If so, by taking note of all the information given and sorting them out to decide “whodunnit,” you might put logical and analytical thinking to work

When criticizing the plot, the same ability to evaluate information often comes in handy; evaluating if it was a well-written work if the characters were well-formed if the storyline was running smoothly, etc.

Better Writing Skills

This goes hand in hand with the vocabulary expansion: exposure to published, well-written work has a noted impact on one’s own writing, as studying other authors’ cadence, fluidity, and writing styles would inevitably influence one’s own work.

Just as musicians influence each other and painters to use techniques developed by previous masters, so writers learn how to compose prose by reading other people’s works.

Mental Stimulation

Studies have shown that remaining mentally stimulated will delay the development of Alzheimer’s and Dementia (or possibly even prevent it), because keeping the brain active and activated stops it from losing control.

Just like any other muscle in the body, the brain needs exercise to keep it strong and safe, and when it comes to the mind, the term “use it or lose it” is particularly appropriate. It has also been found that doing puzzles and playing games such as chess helps with cognitive stimulation.

Vocabulary Expansion

The more you read, the more words you are exposed to, and they will eventually join your daily vocabulary.

Being articulate and well-spoken is a great benefit in every career, and realizing you can talk with self-confidence to the higher-ups can be a massive boost to your self-esteem. It might also help in your career, because those who are well-read, well-spoken, and knowledgeable about a variety of topics appear to get promotions faster (and more frequently) than those with lesser vocabulary and lack of literature understanding, scientific breakthroughs, and global events.

  1. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But think about if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could certainly be one of the greatest in its field. Terrific blog!

  2. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. I like what you guys are up too. Such clever work and reporting! Keep up the excellent works guys I have incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it’ll improve the value of my site 🙂

  4. I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back in the future. Many thanks
