Can Reading Books Every Day Make Live Longer?

Books in a library shelf

We may be read books either some times or every day, but not all of us aware that reading activities have great effect on many things to us.

There are plenty of benefits of reading (books, newspaper, magazine, novel), just for few examples are:
- improve memory
- better health
- improve family relationships (parents and kids)
- better sleep quality
- boosting brain
- improving vocabularies
- lower stress level
- better in empathizing

Reading regularly is similar to do exercises (treadmills, jogging, walking, push ups and riding a bike) or eating quality diets such as fruit and vegetables every day.


A front desk library, just for illustration

Researchers from Yale University observed 3,635 people for certain periods, then divided in 3 groups:
- who does not read books at all
- who reads a book every day
- who read a book for 3 and half hours a week.

After 12 years observation, the researchers found that group of people “who reads a book every day” live longer.

Readers with at least 30 minutes to read a book every day have live two years longer compared to who does not read books at all.

Interesting fact shown that who likes to read everyday mainly come from people with following status:
- female
- higher education (college degree)
- higher income

Do you like to read books or other reading sources? How many hours you read per day?

  4. I read on and off all day, but do read about 30 minutes before bed at night. I have tried to get into the habit of turning off screens and reading an actual book right before bed and it does seem to help my sleep.

  13. I love to read. I try and encourage my little Granddaughter as well by going to the Library and letting her pick her own books to take home. I don't always read a book everyday but does the news count?
