How to Develop our habits of Reading?

Reading has ampules of benefits including improving our memory and vocabulary, helping us learn new things, and improving focus and concentration. Do we try to develop our habits of reading? Our reading habits develop in schools. It means, we should try this habit of reading at school, but unfortunately, this never happens in our schools. In schools, the classroom is dominated by a teacher and this is one-way traffic. We ask the students to finish reading two pages but more than 90% of students don’t even try to read. They feel the burden of reading syllabus books. We should develop these habits of reading among students by providing literature of their interest. Teachers should give 25 % of the class for the purpose. Try different methods, take the students to the library where they can read the literature of their interest like reading comics books, stories books and Newspapers. This should be started at the primary level in our schools.

Books can develop confidence in students

Reading books IMPROVE OUR CONFIDENCE because confidence comes from knowledge. We gain knowledge by reading books. When we read a book, we learn about the struggles and hardships of various characters. We relate those situations to use the present and start imitating the characters of the story. Therefore, our confidence level increases. Sometimes we even relate those situations to our personal lives. Understanding the situations of the characters of a book and how they overcome difficult times and challenges give us courage and confidence to deal with our problems. Also, a well-read person will always have more knowledge about various topics that will equip that person better for social situations and for holding conversations with groups of people.

Books help us to Grow Mentally and Emotionally

We read books to increase our knowledge and knowledge always makes us PSYCHOLOGICALLY strong. People are becoming mentally and emotionally weak due to their unwanted situations in their daily life. Reading can expand our vocabulary and communication skills which can help us to interact better with people. Also, reading is an effective way of boosting our memory and enhancing our focus. Reading books makes us empathetic. We understand peoples’ situations, it leaves a strong impact on our capacity to have empathy with people. Reading makes us psychologically strong.

Reading helps in our mental exercise

Reading is great fun for many people, but some people also feel burdened if they are compelled to read the books which are not their interest. reading also has many benefits for our mental health in the form of thinking and understanding. It helps to do mental exercise through words of difficult level and sharpen our mind. It improves our brain functions after getting new information and analyzing different words or sentences. Reading REDUCES STRESS from our mind and helps us to come out of depression and anxiety.


Therefore, we can say that “Read to Learn” is the right tagline, the more books you read, the more you will excel in your life. This process will make you more comfortable in handling your intellectual zeal to learn.  I have been teaching for a long time and put my maximum effort to convince the students to put more concentration on reading in any form. So, we can say that books help increase our vocabulary, reduce stress, and mental exercise, improve our personality, make our minds strong, develop confidence, and improve reading, writing, and speaking skills. Thus, in conclusion, we can excel in our life after reading books. It means that BOOKS are assets in our life. Read the following BEST EVER BOOKS to excel in your life:
