Reading is an integral part of my life. I never leave home without a book in my bag. Over the years, various studies have emerged on the benefits of reading and MedicalNewsToday.com published an article that summarized how reading can improve your health! Below are three ways!
- Reduce Stress – Stress is linked to many health conditions, including cancer, lung disease, fatal accidents, suicide and cirrhosis of the liver. Reading reduces stress as shown in slowed heart rate and reduced muscle tension.
