I love this quote of Charlie Jones. Reading is good for our brain. Sir Richard Steele said that reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. Studies have shown that reading stimulates your brain, allowing your mind to remain sharp even into old age. If you fail to exercise your brain, your brain will begin to fail. You’ve heard that if you don’t exercise your body, your muscles will decline. The same goes for your mind. If it isn’t exercised regularly through reading or studying, it, too, will begin to deteriorate. Learning something new, such as a foreign language, will challenge your brain and force it to create stronger links between memory cells. Reading, also, causes your brain to work harder, which builds stronger brain cell connections.
We know that reading has many other benefits. Reading can increase your vocabulary and your writing skills. It also increases knowledge, creativity, and your ability to think analytically. For me reading is the opportunity to learn and grow from other people experiences.
The latest book I read is entitled “The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work” by Shawn Achor. If you haven’t read it yet, I definitely recommend it.
