Why you should read books
Why would you read books instead of watching videos that can convey things so easy to digest and you can save a lot of time by doing so, there is nothing wrong with watching Youtube or some other videos, what reading habits will get you are amazing though, I will let you know some interesting benefits to your brain, you can exercise and get fitness to your body but how can you exercise your mind/brain muscle through “Reading”.
Reading will help you increase your focus and concentration, where you will be in the state of meditation, when you are reading your favorite book or article, try it, meditation is nothing but staying in the present moment, reading, running, or hearing to music is a form of meditation.
The current world we live in is contained with a tonne of distraction around and our minds are scattered, in average, a person with 10 minutes of time split their work from checking emails, working on a task, chatting with friends on mobile phone with diverse thinking, this type of environment will cause the increase in stress level and anxiety then lowers our productivity.
But, when you read a book all your focus and attention will be in the context of the story and the rest of the world is closed to your focus and you will start to immerse yourself in the details of the writing. Let me be clear here there is nothing called “multi-tasking” so don’t pile up your work, do organize work with respect to your priority and you will see the best results.
Try reading a book on your interest for about 10 to 15 minutes every day before work, you will be amazed how much you will be focussed once you start to work. If you are stressed out take a break and read a book, you don’t have to waste your money on vacations sometimes, the solution is at your table.
“Many kinds of research show that reading is the most effective way to overcome stress”
Many researchers agree that only 6 minutes is required to relax your mental activity, once you start turning pages, studies also confirm that reading makes you smarter, your body needs movement so do your brain, reading just does that. I encourage you to read at least 10 to 15 minutes a day, however reading is one of the best workout for your brain.
Reading will make you smarter and can slow down the process of Dementia(Collective term used to describe different indicators of cognitive impairment, such as forgetfulness.) and alzheimer’s(a chronic condition that, over a period of years, signs of dementia steadily intensify.), reading is healthy just like a jogging,. also the information you intake is kind of knowledge so it will be useful for you in the future.
