Reading fires up your brain. A study at Emory University in the US found that reading a book causes heightened connectivity in the brain and neurological changes that persist even after you’ve stopped reading.
Researchers also found that reading can prevent or reduce 29 % of mental illnesses such as Alzheimer’s.
Another benefits of reading are:
- help improve concentration;
- improve social awareness and empathy;
- help you sleep well;
- help dealing with depression, and
- help to relieve stress.
Keep reading and keep your brain young.
