If you want to improve your skills and to become a better person in a short time, start reading.

The more you read, the better you become.

1. It is a cheap, portable, and easy to handle form of entertainment

Among other forms of entertainment, books are cheap, do not require electricity, and do not require complicated maintenance treatment. When we read a book with a specific theme (recipes, interior design, clothing, beekeeping) we can learn certain skills, which will help us save the money we would have used to hire a person who would have fulfilled one of us. from tasks. The books are portable, do not weigh much and you can take them with you whenever you go on vacation, travel, or before bed.

2. It motivates you

Life is full of challenges. We go through different stages, we develop and sometimes we need someone or something to motivate us. If we read inspirational books about life experiences or biographies, our lives can change. Such books encourage us, give us advice, and help us reach our personal goals. It inspires you to become a better person.

3. You become much more empathetic

According to several studies, "getting lost" in books, especially in fantasy ones, increases your level of empathy. In a study conducted in the Netherlands, researchers showed that people who were "emotionally transported" by a fiction book experienced empathy. Reading a book, we begin to be part of the story and feel the emotions of the characters. These emotions allow us to be aware of how different things affect other people and will ultimately improve our ability to empathize more easily with other people. So let's keep reading because a world full of empathetic people is a better world.

4. It increases your self-esteem

By reading many books, you communicate better and become more informed in different areas of life. All this leads to high self-esteem. Since you trust yourself and your ability to convey and relate, you become more productive and generally a much better person. Books also teach us how to distinguish good from evil. We learn about different approaches to life which help us to apply them in everyday life, to realize if something did not work and why. And we will make better decisions.

5. It helps you sleep better

A few hours of sleep lead to low productivity of both body and mind. Researchers recommend that we be calm, quiet, and have a clear mind before bed. Instead of watching TV or sitting in front of the phone, reading a book is one of the best ways to calm down before bed.

6. It teaches us about history, people, cultures

By reading books we will create a panorama of other places, people, and cultures. Books expand our horizons and allow us to see other countries, other people and a lot of things we never imagined. It is a perfect way to visit a strange country in our minds. Speaking of history, it is important to know our past and to know who we are, who our ancestors were, and how society evolved. It is a great way to review the past and appreciate the present.

7. Develop the ability to socialize

We can always share what we read with family, friends, or colleagues. All this increases our ability to socialize. People are social beings, and in the world of smartphones, this capacity is diminished. Reading has always created book clubs, conferences, and places where people met to interact with each other.

8. You learn at your own pace

Another benefit of reading is that we can learn at our own pace. Since we always have the book, we can always go back to a section that we feel we don't understand. We can read a chapter again as many times as we want, without worrying that we will miss an important paragraph or quote.

9. You have a choice

There are so many books that we will not have time to read in a lifetime. Whether they were written a few centuries ago - surely someone is writing a book right now - or they will be written in the future, there are books for every personality type and every emotion type. All we have to do is take some time and choose the right book.

10. There are no side effects of the digital world

We spend a lot of time in front of the TV, mobile phones, and video games, and this can affect our eyes in the long run. The books are safe and light, plus no one went blind reading too much. There are no dangers if we read too much, there are only benefits.

11. They are better than movies

A lot of movies are made after books. But if we read the book and then watch the movie, we will certainly notice that the book is almost always much better. The book contains a unique, special part that the film will never be able to play.
