Reading Reduces Stress

It's true! Reading reduces stress! Everyone knows that reading makes you smarter. It fills the brain with knowledge, builds a better memory, improves writing skills, and increases vocabulary, but to learn that reading can also reduce our stress levels is even more exciting!

According to the University of Sussex studies, reading for just six minutes has been shown to reduce stress by 68 percent.

For avid readers this is bonus news but to those who don't read often enough or dislike reading, it might be time to think again. Reading is an excellent stress management activity that is good for your overall health!

Reading not only acts as a distraction from the outside stressors we face, it actively engages the mind and requires our full attention. When full attention is given to whatever it is we are reading, our mind cannot think about those things that are causing us stress. It works almost like taking a mini-vacation of the mind.

Choose Books You Enjoy

It doesn't matter what you read, what matters most is that you enjoy what you are reading. Everything from Science Fiction to Biographies, Self-Help books to Romance Novels, there is something for everyone!
