Just as your body needs exercise to perform at its peak, the mind can be trained to operate at maximum efficiency, too. One fun and simple way to do this is by reading regularly. Listed below are some of the benefits of picking up a good book, a magazine, or another form of the written word on a regular basis.
Stress Reduction: Reading for pleasure can provide a great distraction for a particularly vexing problem, and also relieves day-to-day stress.
Increased Vocabulary: Reading exposes you to new words and reinforces your knowledge of other words that you may not often use.
Better Memory: The old adage “use it or lose it” applies to your memory too. Reading forces you to remember the text and utilize that memory to make sense of future passages, actively engaging your brain.
Get Smart, Stay Smart: Studies have shown that those who read regularly display higher intelligence and have higher grade point averages than those who do not.
