Most of us live in a fast-paced world were we’re not able to spend time doing some things that we enjoy. I’m sure you can name at least three things you used to enjoy and now you don’t have time for. Some of those things may be reading and if not, it should. Why? Because reading besides letting us learn, has a lot of other benefits. So, let me tell you why reading is good for your career.
Helps your knowledge
Yes, as we all know, reading helps us learn a bunch of stuff, it doesn’t matter the topic. When you read, you start archiving information that will come handy sometime, yes, it will…and guess what? The more information you have, the better prepared you will be to overcome challenges and roadblocks in your life and career.
Stimulates your mind
Remember, your brain is a muscle and like any other muscle, your brain needs exercise to remain strong and healthy. Studies have proven that reading brings neural pathways to life. Reading decreases mental decline for the elderly by up to 32%.
It strengthens your analytical thinking skills
As I commented before, when you read, you archive information. All that information lets you analyze more in depth how to solve your daily challenges. It will also let you have more creative ideas to complete your tasks or create new processes.
It doesn’t matter how much stress you face daily. Once you engage with a good read, it all disappears. Reading will take you to other realms. It will make tensions drain away, allowing you to relax. Studies have demonstrated that reading can reduce stress by around 68%.
This is an easy one. The more you read, the more words and meanings you learn. Being well-spoken and articulate will help in any, yes, any profession. How? It will be easier to explain yourself and to understand terms other people don’t. Also, it will help you deal with higher ups with confidence.
Better writing skills
This, as you thought, this goes hand to hand with vocabulary expansion. When you’re exposed to published, well-written work has a noted effect on our own writing, as observing the cadence, fluidity, and writing styles of other authors will invariably influence our work.
