Are you looking for something to occupy yourself with this summer? Well, as lame as it may sound, I would suggest maybe picking up a book. Hey, don’t knock it until you try it. Here are some ways that reading could positively impact your life:
First off, it helps young adults like us to make sense of the world around us, as well as our peers. It builds social and emotional skills and, of course, imagination. Reading can expose us to different voices and perspectives on life that we may have not considered before.
A big benefit reading has on high school students is that it helps our vocabulary skills and ability to write. So next time you have to write an essay for English class, maybe you can sound a little more sophisticated. Overall, reading is a great way to exercise your mind. Why not give it a try?
