Reading is More Important Than You Might Think

Books
I came across the article “Why Reading Books Is Important for the Brain” today and found it very informative.

There is a growing trend among Americans to read fewer books. Reading is good for your brain because it uses “a highly variable set of skills that are deep and complex“. This is good for your brain health. There is also evidence that reading fiction helps people to “improve their ability to recognize and empathize with feeling sand viewpoints” of others.

Several other benefits that come from reading are mentioned in the article. We should all encourage those we know to take a little time and read.
