In the present time, we are surrounded by gadgets around us and mostly people can spend their whole day just with their mobile phone. In such scenario, we are giving less attention to our greatest comrade, Books. In this article we will try to learn why we should start reading books daily. Reading expands your vocabulary and teaches you how to use different words correctly. Reading makes you clearly express what you want to learn. Reading books seems to increase cognitive engagement and enhances various abilities, including vocabulary, reasoning skills, and focus.
According to Yale researchers, who surveyed 3,635 people over the age of 50, all who read books for 30 minutes a day lived 23 months longer on average than nonreaders or magazine readers. Reading provides us wealth of knowledge to share with others. I enjoy talking to people who read a lot, tiny children. Their conversations are usually in-depth, and it makes me smile as the little ones use fancy words.
Here are five reasons why you should read books daily
1. Reading develops our brain
Reading, as opposed to watching TV, is a much more difficult job for the human brain. Reading improves and creates new links in the brain. Reading is like a habit we should read a different kind of books like motivational, informative, story, poem, comics and many more. Books can be structured our personality and set well-developed mindset.
2. Reading helps to make strong concentration power
When reading, children must sit still and quiet to concentrate on the lesson. If they read enough, they may gain the ability to do so for more extended periods. Not only children, but you often see that book reader always has good concentration as compared to others who don’t read a book.
3. Reading helps us to expand vocabulary and language skills.
When we read, we pick up new vocabulary. We learn about sentence structure and how to use words and other language features effectively in their writing and speaking on a subconscious level. One term has different synonyms, and through reading books, we can get more vocabs, and we can play with the word and language.
4. Reading is an excellent way to spend time productively
Reading on the couch together, telling bedtime stories, and going to the library are only a few examples of how you should spend time together. Sometimes when people get free, they pick the mobile phone and start chatting. It is good to talk but for the only time pass! It’s the bed. Do you know how much UV radiation comes from our mobile phones and it’s very harmful to our mental health?
5. Why should we not read books?
We have seen many benefits to read the book. Do you have anyone disadvantage to reading book? Of course no! You often see achievers always advice to read books. Hundreds of successful business leaders have told about the books that helped them get to where they are now. Hence we can say that ”Books Are Our Best Friend”. Let’s take one more example, suppose we are at home, and the power is off, your mobile phone will also be switched off as soon as the battery dies. You will have no friends there. The strength, friends, can betray you, but your books will be with you always.
