Sometimes books and their stories tend to take you into a whole another world. This might lead an individual get engrossed in imagination while still reading ahead. In such cases the person has to go back and read the things he did not focus on. So such kind of habits can be avoided by focusing on the sentence that we are reading rather than on the previous topic or paragraph.

  1. Reading in bad Lighting

This is the basic requirement. Reading books in a bad light might affect your eyesight.

Here’s another basic practise that should be followed. Having a correct posture while reading is very essential for your back to avoid back aches and other back and neck related issues. Be it an adult or be it kids everyone needs to maintain a proper posture to prevent back aches or craning of the neck. This also causes problem in concentration where it makes you tend to forget what you have read.

  1. Wrong Assumptions and end reading

You should never judge a book just by looking at the cover. Try and read the front and back write ups to get a clear idea of what the book is about. Also while reading the book try not to read the end first, this might spoil the whole fun process of reading the whole story.

  1. Folding pages

Never fold the pages of a novel. It’s not a right thing to do. Instead use a book marker.

  1. Great Experience

At the end of the day the things that you do, ideally, you do them for happiness. Writing a book and pouring out thoughts on paper also does the same.

Writing continuously always brings out the best in you and you manage to have the time of your life.

You learn to observe and relate things better. Everything you observe you put it down on the paper.

4 Ways in which Reading Uplifts Mental Health

We at Bookhungama have always endorsed reading. It is one of the most important habits to possess. Reading helps you become stress free. We would always recommend that never read anything because you have to or as if it is one of the tasks you need to accomplish. Read because you would love to, read because reading helps you to travel in a world other than yours and helps you to forget the worries and difficulties of your existing world.

Reading has a great effect on the mind of an adult as well as a child. This great habit proves beneficial for the mental health of both adults as well as children.

Here are some of the ways in which the habit of reading helps to maintain a sound mind and boost the mental health

  1. You become very understanding

Studies have proven that reading helps you to become very empathetic towards others. Reading various stories and going through many characters helps a human being to become very perspicacious. In this way they become more inclined and open towards how others feel especially the ones who are not in the same situation as theirs.

  1. Reading helps you to deal with your difficulties

While reading a self-help book or any book by some great thinker or philosopher you tend to get answers to many of your own problems. While reading any story or a novel at times you are able to relate to certain characters and are able to deal with your situations by reading the journey of the characters.

  1. Increased intellectual capabilities

Reading definitely assists you to make your memory sharp and increase your knowledge. Informative books prove to be great knowledge boosters and novels prove to increase your vocabulary. Good vocabulary is always an indication of great intellectual capabilities.

  1. Great stress buster
