I asked him,’Do your read?’ and he replied,’yeah,Facebook updates,tweets,news headlines’ …And i was speechless !!!Later I couldn’t ask,”When is the last time you read a book ? an article? a blog ?an autobiography ?”
We do a lot of things to keep our body young and healthy but what about brain ?
Just like any other muscle of the body, brain needs exercise to be healthy and strong and what can be a better way than reading.It’s been proven to improve people’s memories, increase brain power, and even enhance empathetic skills.It’s not uncommon for people to say that a book has changed their life, but did you know reading a novel can actually change the brain?
Roberto Bolaño says, “Reading is like thinking, like praying, like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people’s ideas, like listening to music, like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach.”
Exploring a new world:
Loosing yourself to a well-written book ,a great story can transport you to other realms,allowing you to relax by letting the stress away.When you read a book, all of your attention is focused on the story—the rest of the world just falls away, and you can immerse yourself in every fine detail you’re absorbing.
New experiences,New information,New ways of problem solving,New ways to achieve one things-Ain’t it enough?
Reading stimulates brain boosting your imagination and creativity.It gives you freedom to roam the expanse of space, time, history, and offer a deeper view of ideas, concepts, emotions, and body of knowledge.
Two different world meets:
Reading can be a great conversation starter.Two people from different part of the world and a common book !even the idea of this is so tempting.And there can be endless conversation over a book.
Learn from someone else’s mistake:
Life is too short for you to keep repeating the mistakes that had been done by other people in the past, in order for you to reach the results that someone might already reached. How about reading and learning from people’s failures,advice and successes.
Reading is perhaps one of the best hobbies in the world, and one of the healthiest.There’s a reading genre for every literate person on the planet, and whether your tastes lie in classical literature, poetry, biographies, religious texts, young adult books, self-help guides, street lit, or romance novels, there’s something out there to capture your curiosity and imagination.
Reading adds to your vocabulary,knowledge is something we all know…but still many fail to give time to something which is ultimately beneficial to them.Reading is not only educational and informative, it’s entertaining and relaxing, too.
Step away from your computer for a little while, crack open a book, and replenish your soul for a little while.Explore the world of reading.Challenge yourself by stepping out of your comfort zone, and you may even surprise yourself with a newfound passion. You’ll be amazed to see the places reading can take you.
So,which book you are starting today ?
