Something all of us seek on a daily basis is to improve ourselves and our quality of life. Whether this be trying to eat better, get more exercise, enjoy more social time, drink less…maybe not so much this last one in Scotland! An incredibly easy way to improve long-term health, mind function, and make your days a bit more productive and exciting is, well, what you’re doing at this very moment: reading!
Some of the most renowned successes of this generation give credit to reading as a factor impacting their productivity! Elon Musk, Tesla CEO and paypal co-founder, claims he often read up to 10 hours a day in his youth. World famous Oprah Winfrey has called reading her “personal path to freedom”, and former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates decalred that he reads around 50 books a year – both fiction and non-fiction!
– as a side note, you can find a variety of both fiction AND non-fiction novels right here on the Ringwood Website!
Furthermore, reading has been scientifically proven to do all of the following:
- boost happiness and satisfaction levels
- increase life expectancy (wow!)
- reduce stress levels, by up to a whopping 68%
- alleviate insomnia
- reduce the risk of diseases like Alzheimer’s and Dementia by preserving brain health!
Would you believe that something we all enjoy this much can be so beneficial? Improving your health and quality of life doesn’t have to be all about forcing down leafy greens and attemting a jog in the harsh Scottish weather – just lie back and pick up a novel!
Reading results in all of these benefits by activating your mind, providing an escape from the difficulties of reality, and providing a fresh perspective on everyday problems.
So there you have it. If you don’t already have a wide range of Ringwood novels decorating your bookshelf and nightstand, get ordering, because you won’t only have an outstanding reading experience but will improve your mental health and consequent successfulness!
