Why is reading so important?
I read since i know about reading. My father always encouraged me to read. Ever
since i read books, it is my hobby. A door of joy and possibilities opened for
me. Reading makes you an amazing person. Reading opens a window to other
worlds. Imagination and creativity are both improved trough reading. Reading
teaches you about different cultures and different ideas. When you read about
different characters involved in different scenarios you become better at
understanding people and situations. In this blog i want to explain what
are the benefits of reading. By reading you do not only learn anything you want
to, but also experience, imagine and it is entertaining. You can solve your own
problems. There are hundreds of people and they have shared their experiences
and life lessons in books that you can read in a few hours. Reading connects us to
Reading makes you smart
The best way to learn is to read. There are hundreds
of books that will teach you anything you want to learn. With reading you can
self-teach and self-discover. Just like any other muscle in the body, the brain
requites exercise to keep it strong. and healthy, so that's why we have to read
everg day. Everything you read fills your head with new information. The more
knowledge you have, the better prepared you are to tackle any challenge you'll
ever face. With endless amount of perspectives and lives we can read about,
books can give us an opportunity to have experience that we have not had
opportunity to have ourselves, and still allow us to learn the life skills.
Life is too short to keep repeating the mistakes that
people already have made in the past, in order for you to reach the results
that someone might already reached. If you read you have a more varied range of
words to express how you feel and get your point across.
It gives you a higher level of
vocabulary to use in everyday life. Reading will improve your focus and
concentration. Reading a book takes long periods of focus and concentration,
which in first hard to do. But over time reading will strengthen your attention
span. Reading also reduces stress. A study has shown that reading
slows down the heart rate and eases tension in the muscles.
The world described in books
as well as other peoples views and opinions, will help you understanding of
what is possible. By reading a written description of an event or a place, your
mind is responsible for creating that image in your head. If you watch
television the image is placed in front of you.
You are, right now, the
results of the words that you have heard or read and believed about yourself.
What you become in the future will depend on the words you believe about yourself
now. If you want to develop a good self image then reading is fundamental. If
you read you can do your own research and thinking. Reading books has really
changed my life.

One idea that can change your life
Hello dear reader,
Imagine yourself doing everything that you need to do without self -doubt and fear immediately. Think how your life would improve for the better. You would be in control of your own life. You would feel happier, healthier and more succesful. Do you ask yourself why it is so hard to take action? What is stopping you from taking action? Why don't you exercise when you know it is really good for you. Why are you eating all this unhealthy food, that you know is bad for you. Why is your thinking so negative all the time?Yet knowing so much about what we should or should not do, why is it so difficult to take action? Beacause our brain wants to protect us. We have to push ourself to do the things we must do that are good for us. I am really excited to write about this new 5 second Rule to help you change your life. This is the five seconds rule of Mel Robbins. Every time there is an great idea in your head, the moment you have an instinct to act on a goal you must psysically move within 5 seconds or your brain will stop you. 5-4-3-2-1-GO!
Why does this Rule really work?
Robbins studies show that if you wait more than five seconds after that idea in your head, you probably never act on it. Why? Because your brains main job is to avoid trouble and risk, so in less than five seconds it will persuade you to not act upon your idea. Your brain starts asking different questions. What if i look like a fool? What if i can not do it?Most what we are doing is out of habit, research has shown that 40% of your day is spend in autopilot. These habits are most of the time, not serving us. Our brain wants to protect us, it want to keep us safe. Every time we do something for the first time, our brain is keeping us from doing anything that feels scary, hard, or uncertain. In our comfortzone we are safe and staying this way is also easy. Second most of our decisions are taking out of emotions and feelings.We will never feel like to taking action. This rule allows you to beat your brain in its own game. It is a crucial trick for outsmarting your brain. By counting 5-4-3-2-1-GO! you are distracting your brain from the idea's that will stop you to take action. The countdown pushes you out of your habitual thinking why should not take action. Pay attention to your ideas, stop thinking of why you should not do it and take action within five seconds.
Feeling in control of your life
Mel Robbins describes in her book "The 5 seconds Rule": by taking actions that make you feel in control of your life, you will literally begin to change in every single way. As you use the Rule, you cultivate what researches call an '' internal locus of control'', which means that you believe you have control over your outcomes and future succes. Research shows us that those with an internal locus of control are happier, in better health, more likely to achieve at work, and have lower levels of anxiety and depression. And the more often you use the Rule, the easier it becomes to keep using it and keep feeling a sense of control over your life. So, every time you feel yourself shifting into autopilot, count 5-4-3-2-1 to bring awareness to your mind-and immediately act, shifting you into control, lowering your stress, and empowering you to keep making positive decisions.
