Benefits of reading

Sep 12,2018 - Last updated at Sep 12,2018

Reading is the neglected joy in our present days and very few know about its countless benefits. Reading is without a doubt a priceless activity, because of its great benefits.

Stress reduction is one of reading advantages. All of us have stress at work, in our personal relationships, or countless other issues that we face in our daily life. It all just slips away when you lose yourself in a great story. A well-written novel can transport you to other realms, while an engaging article will distract you and keep you in the present moment, letting tensions drain away and allow you to relax.

Doubtlessly, knowledge is one of the greatest pros of reading. Books provide us with information from different fields. The more you read, the greater your knowledge is.

Also, reading is good for quitting Internet addiction. Reading a book or a newspaper allows for investing our time in a useful activity instead of wasting time on the Internet.

Moreover, reading is needed to develop a language you are learning. The more you read, the more words you gain exposure to, and they will inevitably make their way into your everyday vocabulary.

In addition to the points previously mentioned, reading is useful for mental stimulation. Studies have shown that staying mentally stimulated can slow the progress of, or possibly even prevent, Alzheimer’s and dementia. So, brain needs exercise to remain healthy.

Finally, reading is a good habit. It gives us knowledge, pleasure, healthy lifestyle and necessary skills.
