Another way to treat yourself, yet it makes you happy at the same time. If you're not a big reader why not give it a second chance. Surprisingly, some adults don't think it's important to read so I gathered up the benefits which might surprise you!
Why Reading as an Adult is Important
Having an extensive vocabulary at your disposal can come in handy when you’re giving a presentation to business colleagues or boss or having extended discussions family and friends. Rather than reading words straight from a dictionary or thesaurus however, you can add plenty of new words to your vocabulary simply by finishing a portion of a book a day. When you improve your vocabulary also achieve the following:
Become a more eloquent speaker
Gain confidence speaking with others
Gain even better comprehension about a variety of topics that come up in formal and everyday conversations
Enjoying a book on a regular basis can keep your mind active and alert, helping you to remember things better. Maintaining a stable learning capacity and sharp memory can keep your brain at its optimal performance as you age.
Making your way through a book can require significant attention to details and allows you to enjoy the story line more fully. When you read, you can realize more focus in other aspects of your daily life, as well as the books that you are enjoying. Being more bound to notice minute details and nuances is a perk that can benefit you at work and at home.
A good book can take you on a journey away from the daily grind. When you want to relax without taking a vacation, picking up an engaging novel can offer you that and much more. Upon completing a book, you may find that you are reinvigorated and even motivated with a new outlook on things.
If you can't find a book to read choose one from our BOOK LIST.
