At school from an early age, I could regularly be found in the library. I was mortified when the library closed during play break and only opened during lunchtime and before school. It was a relief to go to high school where the library was open extended hours. The local council library was also one of my favorite places to visit.
As a young adult, train, and bus rides to and from work gave me the ability to devour books at a great rate of knots. Once the responsibilities of adulthood, corporate roles and relationships came into fruition, reading quickly took a back step.
A commitment to myself and a new Kindle has reinvigorated my love of reading yet again. What I found is just twenty minutes of reading a day has such a positive impact, many you don’t think of. NO matter whether you are reading education books, romance, drama, a magazine or the paper, there are certainly benefits. Here are just a few:
- Transport yourself to another place with a few turns of the page
- Time to unwind from the day
- Time for you
- Self-help books can really help and give you a new perspective
- Inject curiosity
- Spelling improves
- Vocabulary improvements
- Positivity improves
- Concentration and focus improve
- Contributions to conversation increases
