We have heard our entire lives that reading is an important activity…but what makes it so beneficial to us?
For Courage Igene, reading is a pleasant workout for the mind. By keeping the mind strong and healthy, serious illnesses such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s are less likely to develop in old age. Forgetfulness is likely to be less of an issue. The brain needs a workout, just like the rest of the muscles in your body! With this, you end up retaining a great deal of knowledge as you read. The mind takes in what it has read and begins to take note of the new information. It is amazing what you can learn from reading a book.
