Sharing a favorite book can feel like giving a piece of yourself. Reading, one of the most talked about topics of all time? Why do we do it? How is it beneficial? Why can’t reading be … fun!?
The better question is why do we believe it isn’t? A book is one of the most powerful things in the world. Offering you new opportunities to learn, grow and be inspired.
Young or old, reading takes us on a journey, an adventure, to another place, an era in time, perhaps another planet or galaxy, the ideas of destinations are endless. Readers often choose a book in one of three ways: They like the author, it was recommended or they read the back cover blurb. Research shows that regular reading: improves brain connectivity, increases your vocabulary and comprehension, empowers you to empathize with other people, aids in sleep readiness, reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and heart rate, fights depression symptoms, and prevents cognitive decline as you age.
Still not convinced- give yourself an assignment while reading. Quiz yourself on character, story line, and plot questions. Predict what happens next and celebrate when you’re predictions are correct, make it fun! Join a monthly book club and discussion group. Challenge yourself today and every day by stepping out of your comfort zone. Maybe even surprise yourself with a newfound passion. Read now, learn for a lifetime.
