Read a Book

Did you know that your brain needs exercise just as much as the rest of your body? Although physical exercise like running or biking can be good for your brain, it’s just as important to give your brain mental exercise, like reading a book or doing a puzzle.


If you’re a student, reading can also help your memorization skills and your vocabulary. According to educators Peggy Gisler and Marge Ebertsm, teens who read are more successful in school and are better able to handle complex issues. Reading is also a great way to learn without the stress of having to get good grades. Studies have shown that reading something you enjoy can actually be a stress-reliever! Reading on your own can be much more enjoyable than reading at school because you can choose to read something you’re interested in!

Step It Up

Make it a goal to read at least one book a month. Make a list of books you'd like to read and one by one, start to conquer that list. Ask friends and family to give you recommendations based of their favorite books. If you really want to step it up, consider starting a book club! You'll be doing your mind a favor!

Keep It Simple

Make reading a book an alternative to playing video games or watching television when you’re bored. You’ll find that reading can be just as much fun!
