🙂 it’s all around very peaceful.
Reading widely allows you to explore different topics from different perspectives and discover links between issues in the world or life. Allowing oneself to develop empathy whilst expanding one's horizon
Reading non fictional books could also teach us skills and facts that are usually not taught to us in school such as communication skills
Reading fictional books could teach us morals and fills our life with the wonders of imagination and fantasy, keeps us from thinking all day long about things that stresses us out( homework, projects, your laundry). Basically temporary respite from modern life.
Lastly, reading widely could allow you to avoid falling into 'echo chambers' online where your social media feed just keeps sending you the articles that you want( or supports your particular believes even though it could be wrong) and not articles that brings you other perspectives and alternative forms of thinking. Over time, this 'echo chamber' effect could strengthen prejudices or unhelpful habits. Making an individual to be more single minded and intolerable to people who hold different perspectives.
Hope u find this useful! Reading is a really good habit to have. Keeps your mind active!
