10 unbelievable benefits of reading books (Part I)
When was the last time you read a book or magazine? If you are one of countless people who do not have a habit of reading every day, that means you have overlooked the many benefits of reading.
Below are just 10 benefits of reading books.
No.1. Stimulating the spirit
Studies have shown that reading helps stimulate the mind. Spiritual stimulation helps slow down the progression (or even stop) of Alzheimer's disease and memory loss, keeping your brain active and engaging to prevent energy loss.
Like any other organ in the body, the brain requires exercise to stay healthy.
No.2. Reducing stress
Regardless of how much workload you are in, personal relationships, or countless other issues facing everyday life, all disappear when you focus on an interesting story. A good book can take you to another world, an intriguing article that will stabilize you in the present moment, causing tension to fade away and allow you to relax.
Reading books helps to reduce stress effectively.
No.3. Getting more knowledge
Everything you read will fill your mind with fresh and interesting information. You never know if you will ever need these pieces of knowledge. The more you know, the better equipped you are to overcome any challenge in life.
Books are priceless knowledge.
Remember that you can lose everything - work, property, money, even health - but knowledge is never lost.
No.4. Expanding vocabulary
This benefit comes with the third benefit: The more you read, the more vocabulary you get, the more likely they will be your daily vocabulary. Talking fluently and attracting is an advantage in any job. Reading books supports a lot for your career. People with good readability, good speech and broad knowledge tend to promote faster (and more often) than those who have limited vocabulary and less knowledge of literature, science or events on earth.
Reading books also helps a lot in learning new languages. When a person who speaks a non-native language is exposed to the words used in each context, his or her speech and writing skills will be more proficient.
No.5. Improving memory
When you read a book, you have to keep in mind the characters, the information about them, the ambition, the history, the tone or the circumstances that shape the way each story goes. Maybe they are so many things but the brain is a great thing which can remember all this easily. Very miraculously, each new memory will cause the brain to create new brain wrinkles and strengthen the old wrinkles to support the memory and balance of emotions. Is that interesting, right?
