If you love to read, you know there’s nothing better than curling up with a good book at the end of a long day. But, did you know that reading comes with a number of benefits for both your mental and physical health? Here are some of the benefits of reading:

  • Reading before bed can help you to fall asleep faster and rest more soundly. Things like watching TV and browsing your phone before bedtime can actually make it harder for you to fall asleep. That’s why reading is a great alternative to help you relax and unwind before bed.
  • Regular reading can help keep your mind sharp as you age. Studies have shown that reading can strengthen your memory and keep your cognitive abilities sharp.
  • Reading also reduces stress and helps to combat symptoms of depression.
  • Reading also has physical benefits, as it can lower your blood pressure and heart rate.

If you’re looking for a new hobby, you should pick up a book. Not only is it a great pastime, it’s also a hobby with a number of perks for your mind and body.
