Get Lost in a Good Book on September 6th!
Everyone has different hobbies in life. Some are into sports, others into dancing, and some just can’t put down a paintbrush because of their love for painting.
Some individuals, however, find that their happiness lies inside the pages of a good book. On September 6th, we celebrate National Read a Book Day. It’s a day that encourages everyone to read while raising awareness of the benefits associated with reading. Just as physical exercises make your muscles stronger, reading acts as a mental exercise that improves your concentration, memory, and vocabulary.
Studies have shown that book readers tend to have a slower cognitive decline compared to those who rarely take the time to read a book.
Don’t worry, no one expects you to finish reading a book in a single day! Even most avid readers prefer not to read a book in one sitting, taking their time to digest the content of whatever they’re reading.
On National Read a Book Day, take the time to read even a few pages of a nice book. You can read only your favorite parts in a book you love. You can also read to your kids. Try reading some poetry or inspiring quotes as well,
Make time to sit down, shut off everything else, and lose yourself in the world of whatever book you’re reading. Your mind will appreciate the break from a good read. It’s an escape from the usual stress brought on by work and life’s responsibilities.

For instance, don’t close your eyes to the struggles being faced by many of our veterans and their families. Some of them may be living in your local area.
