Yes, you hear it from time to time, however, now research even backs it up. Reading as little as a half an hour a day will impact your longevity significantly in a positive manner. Becca Levy, Yale professor of epidemiology, led a study which supported that a benefit of reading, and not just any reading, but the reading of books, grants an individual a “significant survival advantage” over those who don’t.

This is powerful information! The researcher reports that by spending as little as 30 minutes a day with your nose in a book, you can increase your life as much as two years compared to someone who is not a reader. And indications are longer periods of reading per day are better. Do yourself and your loved ones a favor; encourage time spent off electronics and on page turning!
