Studies show that reading has a wide variety of benefits. Non-fiction improves your general knowledge while fiction can make you more empathetic. There are health benefits too! Adults who read find it’s a great way to relax and destress. Reading before bed can also improve sleep. Mental stimulation is key in slowing the progress of dementia and it increases your focus and concentration.
