Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. Those moments of concentration when you get acquainted with a book and connect with a single story. Its plots and characters from the moment you open the first page. Some of reading incredible benefits are more focus, concentration, and alertness. Our brain is a muscle, and like any other muscle, it needs frequent exercise practice to keep it healthy.

When you concentrate on a great story, a fantastic book exercises your imagination, creativity, and entertainment. It takes the mind away from the present and helps with relaxation and learning. My favorite “Me, Myself and I” moment is when I sit in a quiet corner holding a teacup while I get lost with a great story. Reading contributes to entertaining and replenishing the brain with new data and information. The more valuable information you feed your brain, the more engaged the mind has to work, face unique obstacles, and look at upcoming challenges.

Therefore, be selective with your reading choices. There is evidence that book lovers can make their brains come alive with emotions and senses stimulated through reading. A similar advantage for those who prefer listening to a good book. Let’s say through Audible.com. The brain gets to “light up” while hearing a narrated story—the central part of the brain that processes language gets activated. Reading makes you connect to real-life experiences archived in your memory. While reading or listening to a news story, the mind gets to believe that the information has been lived or experienced. Isn’t that fantastic? – Wendy
