Most young people (especially Generation Z) would rather watch a video than read a book. After finishing high school, they avoiding buying or borrow books. To them, books are for nerdy people, which are boring people they don’t want to emulate.
They avoid books because books remind them of that English boring teacher who used to force them to read Shakespeare. Or a parent who always insisted that they should read Moby Dick. If only they knew how beneficial reading could be, they would be reading novels like those of authors like Daniel Handler voraciously. So if you are one of those people who hates reading with passion, here are some benefits you should consider reading more often.
Reading fires up your brain
Science has proven that reading books helps our brains to concentrate better. This study has found out that reading regularly strengthens your brain and makes it to be more sophisticated to handle daily challenges. Over and above that, people who read a lot tend to be knowledgeable, have a high IQ, and adapt to changes easily.
Reading improves your emotional intelligence
Have you wondered why bookworms are emphatic compared to people who shun books? People who read are likely to take part in charitable activities and they are not likely to be violent. In prisons, prisoners who read books tend to be well rehabilitated after serving their term than those who only watch films. Again, that goes to show how reading improves your capacity to think and control your feelings well. Still not convinced that you should read?
Reading lets you expand knowledge in topics you enjoy
Maybe you should start looking at subject matters that will be of interest to you. You can start with self-development books, then biographies, and progress to novels. Most people think reading a novel is a waste of time, but they still make the time to watch a film based on a novel. Not all reading needs to be educational; many like to read for the simple joy of getting lost in a good story. Consider reading the work of the best author Daniel Handler who has written plenty of compelling novels
