Fabio Mendez is a highly sought-after infrastructure finance executive, experienced project structuring professional and public speaker who makes it a habit to read regularly, for both business and pleasure. The benefits of reading are many, and it should be a priority for everyone because of it.
People who read are more intelligent than those who don’t. Readers enjoy higher IQs, GPAs, and overall knowledge compared to non-readers. It’s a simple thing, but it make a big impact! Reading improves your crystallized intelligence (knowledge), working memory, and emotional intelligence, the three types of intelligence recognized by scientists today.
Reading can also boost your analytical thinking. As you read, your brain begins to pick up on patterns which improves the part of the brain that recognizes patterns, transferring that ability to other areas of life. Reading also increases your vocabulary by introducing you to new words and new contexts. Some studies suggest that reading keeps your intellect sharp, and will stave off dementia and Alzheimer’s when you reach an advanced age.
Reading is also a great way to relieve stress. Whether you are going through a tough time, have a demanding or stressful job, or just enjoy a break, reading can help take your mind off your current problems and replace them with information or evocative storytelling.
Another great reason to put reading in your downtime arsenal is that it can improve you focus and concentration, including for those who suffer from ADD or ADHD. Reading also improves your writing skills. The more you read, the better you write. Fabio Alberto Mendez Dangond has found his career has benefited from his regular reading.
