Magic #9

Reading relaxes the body and calms the mind.

This is an important point. These days we seem to have forgotten how to relax and      especially how to be silent. When we have time to ourselves, we have a tendency to veg out in front of some sort of screen. I have to admit that I am guilty of this. It is actually quite stressful for our brains and can interfere with our sleeping. Reading, in silence, black print on a white page is much less stressful for our eyes and brains. That is why a bedtime story has always been such a good idea.

Peaceful magic.

So, you see, reading very definitely IS important and magical. It is important for you now, and it is going to be an important part of your futures.

 

I am going to finish with a quote from author Mark Haddon.

 

He said. “Reading is a conversation. All books talk. But a good book listens as well.”
