Reading is a hobby that has been well documented to support cognitive health.

It is just as beneficial as doing crossword puzzles and playing a musical instrument in terms of habits brain experts recommend people do to keep their minds sharp.

According to Dr. Willeumier a brain scientist, she said that "Reading is a cognitively engaging task that requires higher-level cognitive processing, integrating written information and language comprehension".

She also said "A consistent reading practice strengthens your ability to communicate and will improve your vocabulary, reasoning, concentration, and critical thinking skills while enhancing brain network pathways".

Reading has been shown to promote empathy social perception and emotional intelligence which are cognitive processes that lead to greater longevity.

While the study focused on physical books and did not include audio, Dr. Willeumier alluded to the fact that both processes required similar cognitive processes.

"Ultimately whether you prefer to acquire information through listening to an audiobook or reading a written text it is the content of the information that requires higher-level cognitive processing in the brain" She said.

Reading takes time and requires your attention. With audio, you can get the same information while doing other things. Listening is the natural way that we received information as children. It requires less mental strain.
