10 Reasons Why

People Should Read Everyday

1.Constantly reading improves one’s Mindfulness, a key component of a Practical Civilization.

2.Reading exercises our brains. Reading is a much more complex task for the human brain than, say, watching TV is. Reading strengthens brain connections and actually builds new connections.

3.The more you read and learn about the world, the more potential to see things from a different perspective. This allows you to become more open and hopefully grow to new levels of understanding.

4. Studies have shown that when your mind focuses on the subject matter at hand, this forces it to block out anything else that may have been bogging it down during the day.

5. Reading allows for a more personal view of the characters involved and their development.

6. Reading provides the brain with a constant stream of new information to process and digest.

7.Reading is a vital skill in finding a good job. Many well-paying jobs require reading as a part of job performance.

8.Reading helps children [and adults] focus on what someone else is communicating.

9.Good reading skills, especially in a phonics reading program, improve spelling.

10. Reading is important because words - spoken and written - are the building blocks of life.
