Reading: The Pleasurable Escape

It can take us to exotic lands with sandy beaches and clear blue skies. It can take us back in time, even in prehistoric times, or back to the world of the big brother of the 25th century. It can fill our eyes with tears or make us laugh out loud. Reading opens a window to the world, giving us a glimpse of things we had never done before. But even if you don't realize it, reading can reduce your stress levels. For one thing, reading can help solve problems, which can automatically relieve stress. Suppose you are overweight and this helps with your stress.


Reading is a great source of hope and can help relieve stress. Through biographies, you can read about celebrities and learn how they overcame their struggles. These winning stories can inspire you to find ways to overcome the challenges of your own life. Inspirational books elevate your spirit and allow you to achieve things you never dreamed of. Of course, reading can increase your stress levels. For example, if you are studying for a test or reading about a disaster in a local newspaper, you may find that your stress levels are skyrocketing. Therefore, it is important to choose when it comes to reading material. If you're feeling stressed, take a relaxation book, such as a travel book, cookbook or poetry book. Simply resist the urge to read something that bothers you the most.


If you find that you don't like reading, you can start with graphic novels. You may like creations like this comic for its interesting images. Or you can start with glossy magazines. In the long run, it doesn't matter how much you read how much you read. Read on as you pedal to the store line, the bench, or your exercise bike. The more you read, the sooner you will find that you want to read more, and the less stressed you will feel.
