Essay on why reading is important


In a world where entertainment is right in our hands, you may ask yourself what's the point of reading? In today's fast paced world, reading is becoming a dying habit because there are faster alternatives to consume on social media. I read about a book a month so I'm gonna give you


My top 10 reasons on why reading is important and why you should reading


1. Reading is food for the brain. In my opinion, this is the biggest reason why reading is important. Just like how our body needs food to sustain itself and function optimally, our mind needs to keep on learning new things to operate at peak performance.

The best part is that you can read fiction and non-fiction to get this benefit. Studies have shown that reading has the capacity to change your brain structure which makes you more empathetic and enhances cognitive processes.

By studying more, you become smarter because you're consuming a lot of information and you keep your brain in top form.

There's this quote from Game of Thrones that sums up this point nicely.




"My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer, and I have my mind... and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its advantage."

~  Tyrion Lannister


2. You become better in conversations. Novels help expand your vocabulary that you may then use to express yourself .Your address will then be more refined and intelligent. 

Also, since studying widens your knowledge, you are empowered to participate in an interesting conversation. With the knowledge you gained from reading, you may add a unique perspective or sustain your argument.

In cases like this, reading non-fiction can be better because you can learn about subjects that appear more often in a normal conversation like technology. But there are also cases where reading fiction can be better like when there is a new popular movie out based on a book and you read the original source material.


3. You can get mentored by a successful person for a very inexpensive price. Consider how much a successful individual's knowledge is worth. People are willing to pay millions to have lunch with Warren Buffett. If you're a normal person like me, you do not have that kinda money. But with books, you can get mentored by a successful individual for less than $50.


A publication is literally the exact words, ideas, mindsets, advice, as well as the experience of the writer put into a group of papers. It is almost like if the individual is right there alongside you speaking to you. 75 percent of self made millionaires reported they read at least 2 books a month. The knowledge you can get from studying is irreplaceable.


4. Reading improves your focus and concentration. In our fast paced world today, our attention spans are really short. Reading a book can help fix this because when you read, your attention is only focused on the story and you may be fully immersed.

You might even achieve a flow state where you're 100% concentrated and forget about the world around you. Try reading for 10-20 minutes before work on your morning commute and you may find yourself more focused and productive at the office.

5. Reading opens your mind. As a reader, you will interact with different stories from different people with different ideas and beliefs. This helps open your brain and be more accepting of others as well as improve your ability to judge other people's character.


6. Reading helps relax you. When you're reading something good, your mind is more relaxed and the topic you are reading about might even bring inner peace. If you're reading fiction, as you may not be fed the pictures and sound like when you're watching a movie, you can experience the pictures and sound with your imagination. The feeling you get from finishing a book can be better than the feeling of finishing a Netflix episode.


7. Reading helps improve your memory. Whether you're following your favorite character through their journey or remembering tips on the best way to make more money, you will be using the memory area of your brain and keep it active. When you should remember something important, it will be easier. Every new memory you create generates synapses or brain pathways and strengthens existing ones so memorizing will get easier.


8. Reading helps you make decisions better. When you are armed with all sorts of knowledge, making a choice can be easier since you find all possible options. It is possible to make educated guesses on how each choice will play out and pick the one you like best.


9. Reading can help you sleep better. It can be tough to sleep when there's a lot of things happening in your mind. Reading for a short time period can help push away what is bothering you internally. Also, we often use electronics late at night that don't help us sleep better because bright lights indicate our brain its time to wake up. Reading a book instead can help but be sure to put it down once it's time to sleep.


10. You become who you are supposed to be. This is somewhat cheesy but by studying, you can change your character or beliefs. Books open up completely new worlds for us to grow and develop as a person.
