Why reading is important for the Brain

Do you know that reading is really good for your brain?

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to your body.

You don't need to read a masterpiece to reap the benefits of reading? If you like poetry you can read that or even crossword puzzles would do the trick.

Reading involves several brain functions, including visual and auditory processes, phonemic awareness, fluency, comprehension and so much more.

Did you know that people who read fiction, nonfiction or poetry for as little as 30 minutes a day over several years were living an average of two years longer than people who didn't read anything at all?

Beyond enhanced brain function and longevity, reading can help you destress after a long day, keep your memory sharp, and so much more.

So pick up a book today and share with us what your reading, we are always looking for the next good book!
