Reading Can Change Your Life.


KARACHI -- When was the last time you sat down and read a book from start to finish? Does your daily reading center around Facebook updates or the back of a cereal box? If you haven't picked up a good book in a while you should! I just recently started reading again for fun and to my surprise there are quite a few benefits to daily reading. 1. Mental Stimulation Just like we have to exercise the body, we also have to exercise the brain. Reading helpsto keep the brain stimulated which can slow the progress of Alzheimer's and Dementia. Doing puzzles and playing games like chess can be just as helpful as reading. 2. Relieve Stress Reading is a huge stress reliever. A wellwritten book can sweep you away into another realm, which will allow your tensions to slip away so you can finally relax. 3. Gain Knowledge Everything you read fills your head up with more knowledge. You never know what you might come in handy. The more you read the more knowledge you will have to tackle future challenges. The best part is no one can ever take knowledge away from you! 4. Memory and mood I recently finished the book Wicked, by Gregory Maguire, and there was a lot to remember! Each chapter had new characters, towns, and events to follow.

Reading will help improve your memory and every new memory you create...
