Why science says you should read books!

200322623-001

It is no secret that reading books is a good habit and now it has been scientifically proven that book readers have a lot of advantages over those who do not read.

The one obvious reason is that the more you read the more you evolve into a better person. This is regardless of the genre that you might prefer. Even a fiction reader gets inspired by the characters he reads about in a book. A research, for example, has shown that people who read fiction are more empathetic than others. Researchers compared the brains of people after they finished reading to those who did not and it was found that readers had a higher level of brain activity, specifically in the central sulcus of the brain which helps visualize movement.

Reading also improves your social skills and this was proved by a study published in the journal of Science. It was found that people who read literary fiction performed better on social skill tests than those who did not read. Reading is also good for your relationships. Apart from the fact that readers get inspired from the stories they read, reading a book is a great way to start conversations with your partner which paves the way for better communication.

Science has also shown that reading can prevent Alzheimer’s. In 2001, under a study conducted by Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, 193 people were questioned about their participation in 26 different hobbies. They found that elderly people who regularly read were two and a half times less likely to have Alzheimer’s.

There is of course the basic benefit of reading which is relaxing and de-stressing. Reading books, magazines or comics is a great way to relax because you get disconnected from reality for a while. Stress levels have dropped by 68% for readers, which is higher than even listening to music or having a cup of tea and coffee.

So, pick up a book now and start reading!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mothers day

Did you know that Mother’s Day has been celebrated for over two hundred years now? The first time that celebration of this event was recorded in history was during the years before the American Civil War. Ann Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia started a group which was called Mother’s Day Work Club. The sole purpose of this group was to educate women about taking better care of their children. During the days of the Civil War these groups became a unifying force in a country that was still divided. The first official Mother’s Day was held in the year 1868, organized by Jarvis, at which mothers gathered with the Union and Confederate soldiers to promote reconciliation of the war.

In 1990, Ann Reeve Jarvis’ daughter Anna Jarvis conceived the first Mother’s Day in 1905 as a way to honor the sacrifices of mothers who gave up their lives for the sake of their children. In 1908 she got financial backing from a local store owner named John Wanamaker and organized the first official

Mother’s Day in Grafton, West Virginia in a Methodist church. That same day thousands of people attended this celebration.Since that day, Mother’s Day has been celebrated in various forms across the world. In The United States, it has been declared as a holiday. Many people give flowers and gifts to their mothers or giving their mothers a day off.

Whatever the reason be behind the celebration, we salute the spirit of mothers.

Save your only home – The Earth

We are so often busy with our lives, wants and needs that we forget to give a thought or two about our one and only home – The Earth. This Earth Day here are some five easy ways to protect the our planet from getting damaged further.

  1. Turn it off – Once you are done with using appliances, lights etc do not forget to switch them off immediately. More often than not we charge our phones and leave the switches on even though we are done. Small and simple everyday changes will help save quite a lot. Encourage others around you to do the same. Use minimal lights in the mornings, try to soak in the natural lighting which is is good for your body and health.
  2. Every drop counts – We very often take water for granted. This is one resource which keeps us and the planet alive. With the current water crisis in the country, we need to make sure less water is wasted by us. Rain water harvesting is one way in which everyone can conserve water. Also in your daily chores like washing utensils and clothes make sure the water consumption remains optimal.
  3. Plant a tree – Plant more trees around you. We are cribbing about the scorching heat every summer and the temperature is ever soaring! The reason for this is lack of greenery around us. Keep small plants in your balcony near your window, this will keep the air fresh as plants release carbon dioxide. What’s more? The greenery and colorful flowers will your day a positive start.
  4. Food waste: Wasting food has become like a trend. Always cook enough to fill your stomach and not the garbage bin. Keep in mind to use vegetables and fruits before they start rotting. Food scarcity is one the biggest crisis the world is facing. Liking Facebook posts with pictures of hungry children will not help, but this definitely will!
  5. Carpool/Ride a cycle – Have you ever seen those people who drive huge cars and they are the only ones in the car? Well these people might think they are definitely living the ‘life’, but they fail to understand they are adding to existing damage already done to the planet. Try your best to carpool and for short distances use bicycles. Cycling will help you stay fit and your fuel money gets saved too!

Agatha Christie comes to Dailyhunt in style!

book

I remember some of the best times I spent during my childhood. Stealing cake from the kitchen or making a tent out of a bedsheet. But my fondest memories are of nights when I stayed up late because I was so immersed in a mystery written by Agatha Christie. That woman sure knew how to spin a tale and maybe that is why she is called the ‘Queen of Suspense.’ She had this uncanny ability to make characters come alive in the minds of the readers and the experience one had was less of reading a book and more of watching a movie reach its climax.

Well there’s good news for all those who grew up as immersed in and enthralled by the world of Hercule Poirot, Miss Jane Marple and Parker Pyne as me.

All the books and short stories written by Agatha Christie can now be found on Dailyhunt – The No. 1 mobile application for reading news and e-Books in all major Indian languages.

Some of Christie’s most famous books like The Murder at the Vicarage, The ABC Murders and The Murder on the Orient Express have been bought and downloaded by readers not just in English, but also in Hindi, Marathi and other popular Indian languages. In addition to these, you can also browse through a wide selection of other books like Death on the Nile (Parker Pyne short story), Peril at End House (Poirot Mystery), They do it with Mirrors (Miss Jane Marple Mystery) and many more. Amongst these titles are some of the rare publications that are probably not very well known but are as gripping at the others like The Jewel Robbery at the Grand Metrolpolitan (Hercule Poirot Suspense), Hercule Poirot and the Greenshore Folly.

While reading these books is an absolute pleasure, owning them and having them at one’s disposal to open and start reading at any time is an even bigger delight. That is why we would recommend buying these e-Books to all Agatha Christie fans! Get your e-book here.
