If you are reading this line that means you are not scrolling Instagram, not playing games, or not watching any kind of videos on YouTube or any other site. So first of all a big clap for you all. Like doing your office work on time and taking your meal on time as same taking out few minutes from your day maybe a half-hour or one hour for reading is also important for your mental and as well as physical health.

Reading is important whether it is book reading, newspaper reading, article, or blog reading it can be of any kind.

When you read, you exercise your analytical abilities and brain recalling power. Reading can change the way you think and help you to be a better version of yourself.

If I talk about myself I studied in a government school and as many of you know that for a government school student English is like “kale akshar bhes barabar”

. It is very difficult for us to clear an English exam and because of the low marks in English daily, I got to read a new story and learn words meaning as my tuition homework.

In the starting few days it was a headache for me but when I used to do it on the daily basis it’s become a habit for me and maybe after completing 15 or 20 days, I start loving reading. I realized reading brings a positive kind of confidence to me.

Books teach us a lot and at the same time entertain us. Books are an essential part of life. Reading not only increases our knowledge but also gives us the means to think the way of others.

Reading helps or is beneficial in many ways like it Increases your ability to empathize, reduces stress, empowers you to empathize with other people, increases your vocabulary and comprehension, and lots more.

Challenge yourself by stepping out of your comfort zone, and you may even surprise yourself with a newfound passion. You’ll be amazed to see the places reading can take you.

So in the end, I just want to say that try or start reading just for 10 to 15 minutes in your day.
