Reading is a favorite pastime for many people. It is said to increase your knowledge and expand your vocabulary. From books to articles, magazines to newspapers, there are so many things you can read.

Coming back to the main topic, reading books is associated with many benefits. It is known to make you more intelligent and smarter. But does it make you a sociable person? Let’s find that out.

Reading Makes You A Better Conversationalist

Not everyone has good communication skills. It takes practice to develop these skills. Good communication includes many important things such as body language, pausing before reacting to a statement, and understanding a person’s inflexion. All these matter when it comes to communicating with someone you know or have just met.

Even a slight miscommunication between parties can create problems. Reading can make you calm and patient. It helps you develop communication skills that you lacked before. With regular reading, you can get better at handling conflicts. Overall, you can become a better conversationalist.

Reading Helps You To Understand Others Feeling

Reading is also known to enhance our emotional intelligence. It causes us to hold multiple points of view in our minds. A person who is an avid reader is more likely to empathize with fellow humans. This is because they can quickly shift to a third-person’s perspective to view a situation.

Reading helps us to develop our minds. It helps us to understand what other people are thinking. As a result, we can explain their actions better. This understanding of human feeling helps improve our overall life quality. In other words, reading enables us to empathize with people better. It trains us to accept and understand other perspectives.

Reading Improves Your Cognitive Intelligence

According to various studies, it has been found that reading changes certain areas of the brain. In the words of neuroscientists, it rewires the brain responsible for vision and spoken language. This in return helps improve your cognitive intelligence. Regular reading can enhance the functioning of your brain area that is responsible for filtering huge amounts of visual information that you see every day. The same change can be witnessed in adults who get used to reading in later stages in their life.

However, it should be noted that the effects of reading are not permanent unless you refresh them frequently.

Reading Improves Social Problem-Solving Skills

Both nonfiction and fiction books teach you how to handle situations appropriately. For example, a book on a soldier gives you a deep insight into the life of a soldier and how he prepares for war.

Every story you read has something to teach. You get to read about different situations and how you can handle them better if they happened in real life. As a result, you can improve your social problem-solving skills. This is why you should read more books.

The habit of reading books is beneficial to you in many ways. It not only changes you as a person but also mold your perspective differently. The more you read the better for you.

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!

Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.
