Why reading is beneficial to your health.

• Reading can help to build verbal intelligence.
According to research, even children’s books expose their readers to 50 percent more words than TV. Easily put, if you want to know more, read more.
• Reading eases stress.
A study in 2009 found that these “miracle stress relieving drugs” already exist in bookstores and libraries across the world.
Participants in the study who read novels saw their heart rates and muscle tension decrease faster than those who listened to music or who drank tea or coffee.
• Reading helps keep you sharper for longer.
Our brains, just like the rest of us, wear down as we age, but that doesn’t mean we can’t prolong our mental powers by taking better care of ourselves. Reading is a great self-care practice that’s easy to keep up with.
