Is What I Enjoy Doing

Benefits of Reading

Stress Reduction

No matter how many stress you have in your daily life, it all just slips away when you lose yourself in a great story. A good-written novel can transport you to other realms, while an engaging article will distract you and keep you in the present moment, letting tensions drain away and allowing you to relax.

Vocabulary Expansion

The more you read, the more words you gain exposure to, and the words will inevitably make their way into your everyday vocabulary. Being articulate and well-spoken is great help in any profession, and knowing that you can speak to higher-ups with self confidence can be an enormous boost to your-esteem. It could even aid your career.

Memory Improvement

When you read a book, you have to remember an assortment the characters; their backgrounds, ambitions, history, and nuances, as well as the various arcs and sub-plot that make their way through every story.


Everything you read fills your head with new bits of information, and you might never know when it might come in handy. The more knowledge you have, the better-equipped you are to tackle any challenge you'll ever face.

Learning New Language

Reading books also help for learning new languages, as non-native speakers gains exposure to words used in the context, which will improve their own writing and speaking fluency.

Improved Focus and Concentration

When you read a book, all of your attention is focused on the story-the rest of the world just fade away, instead of anything else, and you can immerse yourself in every details you're absorbing.

Improve Your Imagination

By reading a written description of an event or a place, your mind is responsible for creating that image in your head, instead of having the image placed in front of you when you watch television.


Reading also entertaining for free time. Reading is not only fun, but it has all the added benefits that we have discussed so far. Much more fascinating than watching a movie or a TV show (although they have their many benefits as well), a good book can keep us amused while developing our life skills.
