This year, tons of exciting new books are set to release. Be ready to spend more hours turning one page after another as you immerse in to new stories.

Why Reading is Good for the Brain

Constant reading shows to increase brain connectivity and strength according to past studies.

Using brain scans, researchers noticed that the circuits and signals in the brain get stronger throughout the reading period and the days beyond that.

Also, scientists believe that reading protects cognitive function and reduces age-related psychological decline.

In addition, researchers have found that reading at least 30 minutes can reduce any emotional and physical stress. However, reading the news can be stressful. So, adults in senior housing can opt to read novels, magazines, and short stories.

Reading regularly can also lead to improved memory and concentration. Reading is a form of exercise that aids in memory functioning, recall memory, and knowledge.

Lastly, regular reading may help you live longer. Based on a study published in 2017, it is said that reading is associated with a 20% reduction in risk of mortality.
