Top 5 Tuesday is weekly meme hosted by Shanah and this week’s topic is Top 5 Reasons I Love Reading!
1- Fills my time
Before I started reading, I didn’t know what to do in my free time! Now between reading, blogging and socializing, I barely have any free time.
2- It Reduces my Stress
As someone who is in medicine school and the system here is nerve-wrecking, reading reduces stress immensely for me and that is scientifically proven!
3- Learning new things
I am always learning new things from reading in many different areas of life, from writing, to space, to medicine, to animals. Think about it and you will find it in a book!
4- Provides a Social Network
I have met many people who have become important to me through GR, twitter and my blog. I don’t know many readers IRL, so reading provided me with many friends that can understand me.
5- Helps me Sleep
I strongly agree with Shanah on this one. I am one of those people who have a difficult time sleeping. I used to stay awake many hours in the past. But now and almost everyday, I read in bed until I become sleepy which is both entertaining and helpful for me!
