WAY TO WELLNESS #7

Aside from the joys of reading to learn something new, there are neurological and mental benefits of reading, too. Studies show stress reduction, mental stimulation, memory improvement, and improved focus are just a few of the immediate benefits. It turns out there are several benefits to reading in addition to de-stressing:
• Increases lifespan
• Increases memory
• Diminishes risk of Alzheimer’s
• Reduces illness ~ physical & mental
• Reduces stress & anxiety
• Enhances sleep quality
• Enhances creativity
• Improves problem solving
• Improves analytical, writing, & conversational skills
• Expands vocabulary
• Increases learning and knowledge of the world, people, or particular subject matter
• Increases your perceptiveness when reading people & situations
• Increases your empathy
• Low cost

It may be hard to do, but try to find time – even just 15 minutes a day – to sit down and read something for fun. Reading, especially something you enjoy, can improve your intellect by stretching your mind to think about things you normally don’t think about! Whether it’s a book, blog, newspaper, or magazine makes no difference. Open up your mind to learning new things and expanding what you already know.

The easiest way to find the time for reading is by planning it into your existing routine, whether in the morning or before bed. You can also set reading goals for yourself…maybe you want to aim to read one book a week or one a month. Work up to it by starting with a set amount of time each day or blocking off a couple hours for reading on your weekend schedule.
