How many of you love reading? Sorry! How many like reading at least? Not many? Of course, I’m one among you. But why don’t people prefer to read? Isn’t it important for us to read something?
Let me give you a small example, China has arranged a summit with the authors from all over the world. One of the authors was curious to know, why was China organizing such an event and he went ahead and asked one of the board members. The reply he got is, “The countries which are excelling in the areas of technology and scientific research have the majority of the children with reading as a habit from their childhood”.
How is it related to reading something and becoming a scientist? Let us analyze it.
- The brain connectivity and it’s functioning
- Improves Creativity
- Improves Imagination &
- A Good exercise for the brain
How can reading do all these things to your brain? When you read something in another language apart from your mother tongue, you need to read it to understand by converting it into your mother tongue which is a good exercise for your brain.
With proper knowledge, a person can go anywhere in the world. They can communicate with a Politician, an adventurer, a model…or whoever it is. The possibilities are endless. When they read novels like thrillers… they develop imaginative power. It is proved that people who have a habit of reading has given a better ending to an essay when compared to non- readers.
Reading complex texts increases your mental flexibility through the process of reminding power with its meaning and the acceptance of new meaning.
Greater mental flexibility allows people to better adapt their thoughts and behaviors to the evolving situations – people of greater mental flexibility are more likely to find new solutions rather than just going blindly.
Hence, having a habit to read, makes you a better person in terms of decision making, also reading helps you go through various situations narrated by the author, so that would make you well exposed and matured.
