Habits are the core formation of what you become. Good habits lead to good results and therefore make you successful whereas bad habits lead to bad results. Some of the most healthiest and greatest habits of all time include ‘reading’. Why?
Reading opens the door for several opportunities. The more you read, the more kind of knowledge you get to apply. But reading is not merely about knowledge. Let us know it all below-
1. Reading Improves Concentration.
Successful people require a peak level focus. It is only when we don’t focus, we tend to lose everything, including our own selves. Once you start learning the art of focusing, you tend to stay balanced in every situation. You are able to fix all kinds of problems and you are also able bring more opportunities with that. Therefore, its important to learn the skill of focusing. As reading requires you to focus at each and every word to understand, it is proven to be one of the most beneficial habits in the world.
2. It Enhances Sleep Habits.
A lot of people in the world today battle depression, anxiety, panic attacks and what not. Some of the solutions to these disorders include sleeping well. Quality sleep not only helps in fighting mental health problems but also helps in repairing other organs, tissues and even the cells of the body. Reading brings our mind to a balanced vibe and eventually also calms down the heart wonderfully. This relaxes the human body and he or she is able to sleep properly or much better comparatively. Therefore, develop a bed time reading habit if you want a great sleep.
3. It Helps in Avoiding Screen Time.
People living in the internet age are hooked to the screens all the time. We wake up to check our phone and sleep while scrolling our phones. We eat while surfing the internet and we poop while checking Instagram. Crazy it is! This is not only making us unfocused humans of all time but also difficult to achieve success with every passing minute. Reading helps us in avoiding all of this while forming a great habit on the side. Therefore, read as much books as possible.
4. It Improves Relationships.
People need people. Be it any profession, you will need people to let the cycle of the profession work. For example, in business, if there is a buyer, there also has to be a seller. Only when people have people, they can move ahead and prosper. This is exactly why communication courses today sell so good. But people don’t understand that some of the most simple and easy things can also build relationships well. Reading helps us understanding a lot of things in detail. You might have come across a large description of a single character in a book or an object, this is done to make us understand it properly. This builds our understanding ability and therefore, we end up understanding people too. This then eventually helps in building amazing relationships with people.
The above four points are just some of the many benefits that reading serves. But a lot of people still don’t make it habit because they either hate reading or they aren’t able to be consistent. This is absolutely normal and fine. Even the great readers would agree that most of them used to hate reading too or lacked consistency too. The solution to ‘hating to read’ is simply finding a book of your interest. You must go for the genres you really like at first. This happens in any kind of art. You like action movies, you end up watch it the most. This develops your love for movies on the side and then you head to watch other genres too. This also happens in music and even dance.
The solution to being inconsistent is simply reading 5 to 6 number of pages everyday. Don’t burden yourself with reading a book within a day or as soon as possible or any time limit. Enjoy the process. You can even start with just reading one page everyday. Some of the people also face the problem of not being able to understand heavy language. The solution to that is simply going for the basic language book in the genre you like. Every genre has classics and beginner level books. Some of the general light-language books are of the author ‘Agatha Christie’. They are even recommended in several competitive exams to build vocabulary while having fun in reading amazing thriller and mysterious stories that this particular author writes.
