Some people may find reading very boring but there a lot of benefits which can help make your life better. Reading newspapers, books and magazines does not only give you knowledge, it also has a lot of other health benefits.

Reading can make your vocabulary very strong and make you smart. It also relaxes you and reduces stress as the mind does not focus on anything but the material that you are reading by that time. This will help you forget the things that stress you and maybe help you come up with a solution of your problems. The more you read, the more you learn and the more things you know, which will also help writers to be able to write. According to, not only does regular reading help make you smarter, but it can actually increase your brain power. Just like going for a jog, reading exercises your cardiovascular system and regularly improves memory function by giving your brain a good work out. Social media has also played a part in helping the youth who are in social media to also be able to read. There is no longer the need to buy books as you can buy or also read them online. There are also articles that are posted on social media and reach a lot of people. Social media doesn’t really help in strengthening the vocabulary as a lot of people use social media language to write their posts.

Social media has made it easier for a lot of youth to read as they can access e-books and blogs on their phones. Reading keeps the mind strong and develops you intellectually. Try to find something to read at all times in order to be smart and improve your vocabulary.
