Wherever you read, and whatever format you find, the information received changes your life whether you know it or not!
Signage on the road will save your life. When you unconsciously see a speed limit sign on a curve, you know you better slow down.
Some theorize that civilization progressed rapidly due to man’s ability to read and write. Notes could be delivered from one town to the next instead of relying on word of mouth. Warnings could be sent, history could be shared, and information could spread rapidly.
Reading is a part of many daily routines. We wake up, read the news, check the weather, rea our emails and go to our jobs where 50% of us spend a large amount if our time processing information by reading.
Reading for pleasure can enhance learning, imagination and creativity.
Starting with books, reading stories that take place in faraway lands can literally take you there. Finish the book, decide to see it for yourself, and book your travel plans!
Reading magazines can be a quick fix to gain information and be entertained. Here’s where you can learn to tie a fly or learn home remedies for ailments, or find a new recipe. The list is endless.
You control what you read so choose wisely. Beware of words that enter your mind uninvited like those you find while scrolling social media! Subliminal messages are powerful entities that will change behavior.
As a society, reading changes us for the better by providing information and inspiration to take action in positive ways.
