Here are some things you may not know about reading books.
No1. Reading stimulates the Brain. Keeping your brain engaged in a good book can prevent it from losing it’s natural power. Your brain is like a muscle, if you don’t use it, you will start to lose the use of it. People watch so much TV these days, their brain doesn’t have to think. Watching is not the same as thinking.
People watch so much TV these days, their brain doesn’t have to think. Watching is not the same as thinking. By reading and following the text, your brain is fully engaged, your imagination is in full flow.
In some cases, reading can assist in helping prevent Alzheimers and Dementia.
No 2. It reduces Stress. Reading can often combat the effects of modern living. It helps take your mind off stressful situations, thus reducing your stress. People who read tend to be more relaxed. You can get get lost in a good book whether it’s factual or fiction.
No 3. Increase your Knowledge. The most interesting people tend to be people who are always learning new things. You increase your knowledge by reading factual books. We don’t remember everything we learn but reading a book several times over can imprint it’s content on the brain and turn you into a very knowledgeable person.
No 4. Expand your vocabulary. One of the reasons that readers appear smarter than many non readers, is that they tend to have a much wider range of vocabulary. Books give you a chance to explore and use new words. Reading books can actually help you speak better, which is good if you are creating audios and videos, or just want to be a better speaker.

No 5. It can improve memory. As you read, your subconscious mind goes back and forth to find associations from your past. This helps improve memory. By constant reading, your memory will improve.
No 6. Improved focus and concentration. Many people suffer from ADD, Attention Defecit Disorder. This type of behaviour increases our stress levels and lowers productivity. Reading a book focuses on one thing, the book. Even reading on a crowded train or bus for 15-20 minutes a day will vastly improve focus and concentration.
No 7. Improved Writing Skills. Show me any top writer who does not read books. Reading can improve writing. Observe how top writers write and model other people’s writing styles until you develop a unique style all of your own. If you read regularly, you should never be short of content ideas. I often use books for ideas for my blog posts.
Tip. If a book has 12 chapters, you potentially have 12 blog post ideas. From each chapter, take the main topic and two sub topics. You now have 3 main points to write about in your blog post. Some books have 20 or more chapters.. keep buying books and you’ll never run out of ideas to create content about.
