Reading is Like a Workout for Your Brain. Here’s Why:

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.
