For many people these days, reading has reduced to news feeds on a social media platform such as Twitter and Facebook. However, there are several benefits to reading a whole book. You should always make it a habit to read a new book every week. That will improve your memory and assist you in performing well in the workplace. Below are the benefits.
Credible studies have shown that remaining mentally stimulated reduces the risks of disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. The opportunity to improve your brain is in your hands. You can either challenge it through reading or remain dull instead. A habit such as reading acts as a form of work out that helps your brain stay actively stimulated, and improves your memory.
Have you ever noticed how easy and efficient it is to get rid of a stressful issue after reading a good book? It is the best way you can de-stress yourself. Reading makes you forget about the challenges that you might be experiencing at the workplace. It has shown to be much better than listening to music as you engulf yourself in the imagination and thrill of the author’s scenes. Less stress ensures that you will be having fun and enjoying your roles in the workplace.
Reading books exposes you to different literature and more words. You will learn different words every time you turn to a new page or chapter. Within a short period, you will improve your knowledge due to the new vocabulary that you learn with each reading session. An improved vocabulary might correspond to a new promotion and a better salary. Besides, CEOs of leading companies around the world read around 60 books annually. That means five new books every month. With better vocabulary, it will be easier for you to communicate with clients and negotiate improved business deals.
