Help Us Help You Help Us

writing infographicAre you laughing yet? You should be. The title is a blatant attempt to get you to read this post, but there certainly more to it that that.

According to Psychology Today, “Neuroscientists have discovered that reading a novel can improve brain function on a variety of levels,” and, “researchers found that becoming engrossed in a novel enhances connectivity in the brain and improves brain function. Interestingly, reading fiction was found to improve the reader’s ability to put themselves in another person’s shoes and flex the imagination in a way that is similar to the visualization of a muscle memory in sports.” The article further states that passive activities, such as watching television, don’t help people to visualize. The work is done for the viewer, and he merely watches the action.

Athletic reading. I like it. That’s my kind of a workout.

Smart people read, and reading actually makes them smarter. Take that big word “Neuroscientists,” I already knew what that meant. Impressive, huh?

Are you ready for another fun fact? The Daily Infographic says that “writing can serve as a calming, meditative tool. Stream of conscious writing exercises, in particular, have been identified as helpful stress coping methods. Keeping a journal, for example, or trying out free-writing exercises, can drastically reduce your levels of stress.”

Stay with me here. Conclusion: Reading our books will benefit you in several ways, and it will encourage us to write more books for you to read. Writing those books will help us to reduce our stress levels, leading to longer, happier lives. You can feel good about taking some time for yourself, because you’ll know that you are being a true humanitarian, ministering to others.

And love will be showered all around. God bless us every one.
