Reading: Good for Your Brain…Good for Your Heart

Hi, Tutors,

Many of you have done with me the ice-breaker, Three Things We Have in Common.  And invariably one of those three things is, “We both love to read.”  Adrienne Marshall posted on the TLC Tutors Facebook page a link to an article that I hope all of you will take the time to read.  It speaks to the benefits of reading as discovered by neuroscientists and neuropsychologists, but it also reminds us of the sensation of becoming mentally absorbed by words on paper.  I encourage you to read the article thoughtfully…and then go lose yourself in the world you meet inside the pages of a good book.  It’s good for your brain…it’s good for your heart.
