Why to Read EveryDay: Unmasking the Ludicrously Epic Low-Key Superpower!

Let's face it, we live in a world where binge-watching Netflix and swiping left and right on dating apps are considered noteworthy hobbies. But there's an irreplaceable, crazy charming hobby that's been entertaining us for centuries: READING! If you're wondering why to read every day, get comfy while I present to you "Reading: The Unappreciated Rockstar of Hobbies."

Why to read everyday

Why To Read Everyday?

First things first, reading doesn't require a charger (unless you're team Kindle, then I apologize). Those thrilling cliffhangers aren't held hostage by the dreaded 'Low Battery' sign. Reading is an all-weather, anytime-anywhere friend. Stuck in a traffic jam? Read. Awkward family reunion? Read. Bank queues that seem longer than a Monday? Read. Had a fight with wife. Read (Haha, just kidding)

Secondly, for a hobby that involves sitting and staring, it's amazing how it effortlessly takes you to different worlds, times, and even dimensions. It's like having a VIP backstage-pass to anywhere (and anytime) in the universe, without even worrying about sucking in your gut!

Next up, characters. You might never dine with Sherlock Holmes or follow Harry Potter (buy this asap if you still have not read Harry Potter, shame on you) into a wizard duel or have a chit-chat with Jane Eyre, but that doesn't stop them from becoming your lifelong friends. They stick around, long after the last page has been turned, making your mundane mortal life seem a tad more magical.

Oh, and here's a fun fact: reading can boost empathy.(So, says Prerna .. According to her I'm the least empathic person ever born, so let me see if I can do better) Every time we veni vidi vici with a character, we are walking in someone else’s shoes, seeing the world through their eyes, and probably itching to throw a shoe at their enemies. It's like having an unlimited empathy top-up card that never expires.

Lastly, reading is self-care. It's like yoga for the mind, a mental detox that calms your brain and heart rate. In a world that is running faster than Usain Bolt, reading is that chill mate reminding you to breathe. Its like the finally reaching the deadlift PR (btw 200 Kg is my goal by end of year)

So, why to read every day? Well, it's a bit like asking why to breathe every day, drink coffee every day, or scroll memes. It's addictive, life-giving, eye-opening, and honestly, who doesn't love the suspense of what the next page will unveil?

To wrap it up, reading isn't just about leisure or knowledge; it is about being part of a broader narrative that goes beyond our own lives, and that's a delightfully humbling thought. So, read on, my friend, because every page, every line, every word is a chance to live a thousand lives in one.

Now that you have got the answer to why to read everyday, letss reaaddd...
