Picking up a book is more than just entertainment for your mind. Reading is a workout for your brain, strengthening it in various ways.

Studies suggest that regularly engaging with text can improve memory by keeping your brain active and forming new connections.

It strengthens both short-term memory, used for following a storyline, and long-term memory, as you retain information.

Reading also expands your vocabulary and comprehension skills. As you encounter new words and sentence structures, your brain builds its capacity to understand and use language. This improved comprehension extends beyond just reading – it translates to better communication in all areas of your life.

Another benefit is enhanced focus and concentration.

In our fast-paced world with constant distractions, reading provides a mental escape that requires focus.

By following a narrative or absorbing information, you train your brain to concentrate for extended periods.

Furthermore, reading can boost your brain's connectivity. Different brain regions work together when you read, and this interaction strengthens the pathways between them.

This improved connectivity can lead to sharper thinking and faster information processing.

So, the next time you reach for a book, know that you're not just getting lost in a story – you're giving your brain a powerful workout.

At a very early stage I got to know that reading has a way of broadening your mind and makes you think sharper and deeper.

In fact, from information I gathered from researches, it also enhances your communication and makes you a better person.

The good idea is that, you can now analyse issues from different angles based on your varied experiences you’ve had through reading.

Armed with the above insights, I started reading very early. It was a very difficult exercise at first but I realize that if I have to make this as part of me, I have to figure out a way to make it not only easy but also convenient.

I device a common plan which assist me to complete about 5 to 8 books a month.

I realise that, having a book near me at places where I spend much of my down times will assist me to instead of staring in the air and waiting, to be rather reading.

So this is what I did.

I placed a book in my rest or wash room. I just realize that sitting on that pot every morning was just a darn waste of time, so instead, I converted it into reading time.

I placed another book in my car, I also realised from here that, as a sales man, I go to places where I have to wait on somebody, or may be a client is in a meeting and will be finishing in 15 to 20 minutes so I have to do nothing but wait. I quickly switch this time into reading time.

I also place a book on my bed. I don’t generally slump into sleep immediately I hit my bed, unless I’m pretty tired.

I realised that this tossing time before sleep comes could be used beneficially by reading an entertaining novel and that’s what I do daily.

Now, these 3 isolated places could help me finish 3 medium size books in a a short while. I also remember to fold the page so I can always come back to continue where I left off.

This method may not be for everyone based on your schedule and how you go about your day. But trust me, in each and everyone of us, our day may have pockets of time that we could carefully plan and put in some reading time.

In most offices, lunch breaks alone goes for about an hour. A 30 minutes reading time a day could take you pretty far to finish a book or two in a month. This lazy format may not look much but better than nothing at all.

If you are still struggling to read a book a month, adopt this lazy method to bump yourself up the ladder.

I hope this helps you. If it did, be sure to clap me a thousand times (joking, a few tens would do), leave me a comment (it will encourage me a lot — smiles), and share this with someone you know needs it (they say sharing is caring).
