Stress Relief Tool – Read A Good Book

This activity can help reduce your stress by as much as 68 percent.

What do Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and Elon Musk have in common (other than tons of money)? They all find time to read and improve their knowledge.

And reading is not just benefitting your mind – research shows that it can help reduce your stress level by as much as 68 percent!1

Now, you might be thinking “when do I have time to read a book?”

The key is that you don’t have to spend a long time reading. You could just read ten pages a day. If that proves challenging to your schedule or environment, consider listening to an audiobook on your commute. Whatever solution you choose, the fact that you are reading a book for your own pleasure will help with your overall stress level, and improve your knowledge in the process!

And if you are looking for an easy and helpful new book to read, please consider LIGHTEN Your Day.
