The other day I wrote a blog talking about, how if you’re reading this blog you are on the right track as you try to improve yourself( you can read the blog here). However in that blog I didn’t talk about the benefits of reading even though I mentioned reading. So here are the benefits of reading!

  1. Reading Strengthens Connections In Your Brain

Now, this might seem a little confusing at first. What do you mean: “Strengthens Connections”?

Well for that let’s take a quick look at how the brain is formed. If we were to do so we’d see that the brain is basically a link( or rather a spider web) of neurons(information messengers). This is important because when there’s something we do repeatedly( weather that’s a thought, feeling, etc.) get’s “hard-wired” in our brain( i.e. the easier it’ll be for neurons to work in a certain way).

( Disclaimer: Everything I said about the brain, could very well be false. I’m no doctor so take everything I say with a grain of salt. These opinions are formed from research I did on my own : ) )

Now what does this have to do with reading? Well, if we constantly read, parts of our brain, specifically parts of our brain where we take information, control language processing, etc., get “hard-wired”!

Here’s a 2013 Study where this is proved!

  1. Improvement In Memory And Concentration!

Here is what had to say about this:

When humans read, we create a “mental map” of written text. This mental map helps us process words we are reading and aids in knowledge recall and memory. Romanoff says a regular reading routine helps the brain “practice” mental processes that contribute to memory functioning.

  1. Builds Your Vocabulary

This is a no-brainer. I don’t think I need to provide any research for this.

But why is this important? Well, for one you don’t want to be a 50 y/o with a 12 y/o vocabulary. You also don’t want to sound non-educated. You also want your paperwork( emails, essays, etc.) to sound, sophisticated.

I truly think there are only pros to having a bigger & better vocab!
