Books Stimulate Our Minds


eading is good for your brain. Whether you are young, old, or in between, there are plenty of benefits to sitting down with a good book. Let’s explore some of the ways reading can benefit our brains, shall we?

Books Stimulate Our Minds

Your brain on books is an amazing thing. Did you know that studies show that those who read test better on exams? There are also some who say that readers lead more fulling lives. Books are also known to stimulate creativity. When we read, we trigger parts of our brain to be imaginative. We can “see” the scenes and people in our mind’s eye. The theater of the mind can be a powerful place. Stimulating it can help us solve problems in other areas of our lives.

Reading to Children Is Rewarding for Both

Chances are, your mother read to you. And if you are a mother, I bet you read to your children. Not only is this rewarding for both as it helps bond the mother and child relationship, but it can be enriching for the child. In fact, neuroscientists often encourage parents to read to children because, they say, it can extend the child’s attention span while the brain is going through formative growth stages.

Reading Keeps Your Brain Young

As we age, our brains can be kept healthy through reading. Stimulating the mind and offering engaging and stimulating books to older individuals can keep them feeling young. Reading can also help battle depression as it releases endorphins in some people. That’s right, reading books can make you happy!
