Reading is a proven way to relax the mind, and reading literature can be effective therapy for some of the issues that ail us.
Although reading is often thought of as a spare time activity, maybe we would benefit from enjoying books the way we enjoy food. Food is pleasurable and energizes our body. Literature is pleasurable and energizes our self or soul.
Books can serve as teachers, validating and illuminating our inner lives, preparing us for obstacles and failures, and widening our reach of empathy.
