Parents and teachers try to inculcate the habit of reading among students. It exercises the brain in countless ways and is equivalent to what regular physical exercise do to our bodies. The brain remains active and more functional apart from strong and healthy. Losing yourself to a story or well written novel may transport you to a different world all together. The tensions may gradually drain away which allows you to relax comfortably. With more knowledge, you’d well equipped to face stiff challenges. The memory power gets a boost and so does your analytical thinking skills. Reading also improves your focus and concentration.
