Spreading the Word: Effects of Reading

Today I share with you an interesting short video by BBC Ideas on how reading affects us. The video covers both on-screen and physical book reading, offers some insightful data, and, finally, ends with an important takeaway message about our potential future depending in part on our reading habits. Enjoy! Link to the video: What does reading on screens do to our brains?

Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, every weekend, I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered to be inspiring and insightful. I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling. My weekends’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.   

keep exploring and storytelling!
