Can Reading Reduce Your Stress?

Image found on Facebook.

Reading is for me a release.  It offers an escape, an opportunity to visit other countries, a means to develop my imagination and to build vocabulary.  Since I have quite a vivid imagination and can readily escape into the lives of the characters I read about, and have done since a child, I do find that reading releases some stress.  I'm not sure about 68%?  Perhaps I need to read more?

Does reading alter your perceptions, offer escape, reduce your stress?  Perhaps it's more about taking the time for yourself that reduces stress levels?  What do you think?

  1. I agree. I always read before going to sleep. Writing has the same effect too. I can get immersed in the story when I'm writing.
