Unleash Your Inner Bookworm on World Book Day on April 23rd!
Know the 5 Benefits of Reading a Good Book
Bookworms and bibliophiles consider every day of the year as a good time to read a book. On a particular day, however, book lovers get to profess their love for literature on a bigger scale as people from various countries come together to celebrate World Book Day on April 23rd.
Declared on April 23, 1995, by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the event commemorates the death of one of the world’s most renowned writers, William Shakespeare, and also that of prominent Spanish chronicler Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, who both died on April 23, 1616.
World Book Day is observed in over 100 countries around the globe and is intended to celebrate books and reading.
Why Read? Know These 5 Reasons
Whether using a printed book or an e-book, reading offers certain benefits that cannot simply be replaced by watching videos or any other hobby. Book lovers will agree to this in a heartbeat. The five benefits below are just some of the joys that reading a good book brings.
- Reading stimulates your brain function.
When you are absorbed in a particularly interesting book, you develop and enhance your vision, language, and associative learning all at the same time.
- Reading helps you deal with stress.
If you’re having a particularly challenging day, reading provides you a relaxing break from your normal life as you focus on an interesting subject, a particularly endearing character or an out-of-this-world adventure. Studies have also proven that reading reduces stress levels by as much as 67 percent.
- Reading broadens your vocabulary.
You learn a lot when you read, and it exposes you to words you don’t typically use in a normal conversation. Both early learners and long-time book readers understand words better when they are used in context.
- Reading enhances connection.
As you connect with the characters in a book, you empathize with them, opening yourself to a variety of emotions as you place yourself in the characters’ shoes. Reading books about people in different situations also make you better understand what those people are going through.
- Reading inspires adventures.
When you are inspired by the characters in a book, you are also spurred into action. When you learn about different cultures and create bucket lists based on the places you want to see or things you want to experience, these are positive signs that you are broadening your horizons and setting loftier life goals.
