Benefits of Reading
Reading is "food" to mind just like rice and bread are food to body. Similar to any other muscle in the body, the brain requires exercise to keep it strong and healthy, so the phrase "use it or lose it" is particularly apt when it comes to your mind. Reading is helpful with cognitive stimulation.
As we all know, "Knowledge is power." And books are one of the cheapest resources of knowledge. Everything you read fills your head with new bits of information, and you never know when it might come in handy. The more knowledge you have, the better-equipped you are to tackle any challenge you'll ever face.
Books are inexpensive entertainment. What's the average price of a movie ticket these days? How much have you spent in concert? You can buy many books with that money and be entertained for much longer time. If you have a second-hand bookstore nearby, you can get them even cheaper.
Once you make reading a habit, you'll enjoy reading the books. It will help you combat pressure and give greater tranquility to your mind. Reading can soothe like no other.
Doubtlessly, reading will enlarge your vocabulary. More accumulation of knowledge will surely improve your memory and writing skills. That's why English classes in schools make you read "the classics".
