A New Year is a time for resolutions—you resolve to eat better, exercise more, be kinder to one another, maybe be more organized.
But how about resolving to read more? Because, research finds, it's good for your brain. In fact, a book's effects on your brain can last for up to five days, increasing your brain's function, much like the effects of exercise last longer on your body than when you're actually exercising.
So resolve to read more! It's good for you!
