3. Brain Development.
One way to live longer is to increase the overall health of your organs. This is especially true of your brain, which is improved and exercised with reading. When you read a book, your mind is learning new words and expanding the overall knowledge of vocabulary that you use, which has been shown to be associated with an increased longevity. This exercise for the brain is ideal for improving your communication skills, which can also lead to a happier, healthy life with the relationships you have. Consider reading a book every day for at least 30 minutes, just as you would do with physical exercise.
