We often hear from others that "Reading" is a good habit . Well fed up of the constant reminders i searched the world wide web for the answers and i came up with reasons such as :
1. Increases Concentration Power
Reading is one of the most enjoyable hobbies a person can have Since you must concentrate in order to read, this requires you to focus and think about what you are reading. If you want to break the monotony of an uncreative and uninterested life, go and grab an interesting book
Our mind needs regular exercise to develop and reading is the most effective way to do that. Reading the written word and developing an understanding of it is a skill that is cultivated overtime by the habit of reading. Reading books also help to develop one’s listening ability which is very important to succeed in every aspect of life
Reading is one of the best ways to give a creative orientation to one’s mind. When you read a story, you are constantly wondering what will happen next. This often makes you imagine a sequence of events in your mind on how the story will unfold further. Gradually, when your power to imagine develops, you are able to make better guesses and determine the course of the stories or fictional novels you read.
Friends as suspicious as i was of the idea "Reading " in the beginning, the more confident and sure of it I have became after following it for a year So it's a chain reaction. When you are well read, people will look to you for answers. Then your feelings about yourself only get better. Even more confidence!
Its never too late , so go to a bookstore grab anything you like , its worth giving a shot !
