Raphael Lysander, a graphic designer and owner of Bluewolf Aleppo, has published an infographic on the benefits of reading.
We shared reading infographics many times before, but the new visualization brings new facts into the spotlight.
The benefits are grouped in chapters (health, brain, success, children, etc.). On top of what we already know, for instance, the fact that reading 6 minutes a day can reduce stress by 60% – there are other meaningful comparisons here. Reading reduces stress three times better than walking, and 68% better than listening to the music.
Reading is also an important factor in increasing empathy. 40% of readers volunteer for non-profit organizations. Only 25% of non-readers are willing to do that.
The entire infographic can be seen on Raphael Lysander’s blog, The Metamorphosis Journal.
