Long ago, people often read books as an entertaining way to fill their free time, but today, there are lots of other ways to entertain yourself, such as gadgets, television, etc. With all these options available to you, you probably won’t read as much as you would’ve if you lived before your time. This is a sad fact however, because reading works of fiction has several benefits for the person that chooses to spend time reading them. Today, let’s look at some of the reasons why reading is better than using gadgets on people’s free time. Someone will certainly want to read after reading all that he or she can get from doing so.
Someone who reads will increase their creative thinking, because words describe things, and he or she will have to use their heads to imagine exactly what these things look like. If you’ve ever read a book, you surely had to visualize the characters and things, you especially have to do this when reading fiction, because there may be several characters or things that don’t belong to our world. If you watch television instead, you will never get to improve your creativity because you’ll never have to imagine anything, television programs show you everything through the eyes of the producer and not through your imagination.
Have you ever had a hard time focusing on a task? Maybe you wish your focus was better. Well, reading fiction novels can actually help you take your focus to the next level. Today, a study showed that the attention span of people is decreasing over time. People who read can increase their attention span as well as their ability to focus on doing things. If ever you come across a description of some weird thing while reading, don’t skim over the text, focus on it, and try to imagine exactly what this creature looks like, it will help your focus.
Finally, reading can actually help improve your life in a certain ways. Stress can be relieved by reading, in fact, the study showed that reading just six minutes a day can greatly decrease someone’s stress levels. Studies show that reading will allow you to sleep better, have a higher self esteem, and it’ll be less likely that you’ll become depressed. Of course, this might not be true for all people, but this doesn’t disprove that everyone should read!
