Hello you fellow Medicinalizer! Welcome to the blog! Today, in this blog, I will talk about why I think it is important to read books for our mental health.
Growing up, I have to admit that I fell into the trap that mostly “nerds” read books. That is something that I look back on and shake my head and wonder what I was thinking back then.
Then after my school career ended, that is when I started to get into reading books. I wished I got into reading books earlier in my life. The positive thing is that it is never too late to start a good habit!
Now let’s get into some benefits of reading books regularly! The first one that comes to mind is that it exercises your brain. Our brain is like our muscles and our immune system. If you don’t train those three regularly and get them stronger, then they will get weak over time. If your brain is not in shape, then you won’t be informed, thus leading to you making unwise life decisions. Having low brain power also affects your mental focus and your productivity levels as well.
The next benefit that comes to mind from reading books regularly is that it’s peaceful and boosts your mood. There is something tranquil about sitting in a quiet room and enjoy reading a book! It helps slow things down in a world where things are moving at record speeds! Having some time to find a peaceful hobby like reading books is always good for your mental health.
The third benefit that comes to mind is that you can get lots of knowledge and wisdom from books! When I’m reading a book, I like to have a pen and underline things that stand out to me. Daily at https://gab.com/medicinalwithprinciple I post quotes from books that I read in the “Books of Gab” group that are very insightful. It always feels good to gain knowledge from reading books and getting multiple authors’ perspectives!
Those are the top three benefits that came to mind when dealing with reading books.
