It seems that maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the new trend nowadays.
More people than ever before are putting a higher priority on exercise and eating a balanced diet, but when it comes to mental health, the topic seems to be kicked to the curb.
Don’t get me wrong, I think this new attention to physical fitness is great; however, I also believe the two should equally coexist.
If you’ve been following Natural Cures, you’re already on track to improving your body, but wouldn’t you prefer to strengthen your mind as well?
If so, I’ve discovered a simple trick for doing just that and it happens to be hidden in plain sight.
Actually, by reading this you’ve already proven that you’re capable of improving your mental capacity.
Believe it or not, reading is the key to unlocking the full potential of your brain. Not only can I personally vouch from the results, but the facts themselves don’t lie and the benefits of reading are more important than you may think.
Let me explain.
Technology has influenced people to develop unhealthy multi-tasking habits and the non-stop attention that people give to their smartphones inherently cause stress levels to rise.
However, studies show that incorporating reading into your daily life can reduce this stress by as much as 68%!
It’s EASY and the best part is that it doesn’t necessarily matter what you read just as long as you’re actively engaging your mind in the act.
Reading is a time consuming process that requires attention to detail and contains elaborate explanations of concepts which can dramatically improve your focus and concentration… especially in today’s day and age.
Reading trains your mind to stay on task rather than juggling five things at once. It’s basically a workout for your brain!
Look at it this way: if physical activity strengthens your heart, muscles, and bones, then mental activity strengthens your mind. It just makes sense, and like anything else that’s a part of your body, if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.
So why would you treat your mind any differently?
Active readers are known for their well-spoken traits and extensive vocabularies, each of which correlate to personal confidence and self-esteem. But it doesn’t end there…
Reading is scientifically proven to promote mental stimulation that can slow the progression or even prevent certain diseases, such as Alzheimers and Dementia.
It’s true! People who regularly read have a 32% lower rate of mental decline in comparison to those who don’t.
There’s really no argument against it. Almost everyone is capable of reading yet so many people remain unaware of the true benefits that it has to offer.
But not you!
Unlock the secret to strengthening your mind today. It’s simple and if you’ve read through this article then you’re already off to a good start.
