Shut off your television and your computer and go read book. Perhaps you haven’t done so in a while, but it’s never too late to start again. Pick a book you know you’ll enjoy—it may be difficult to read with all electronic distractions (television, music, Internet), but well worth the effort.

To some, books may seem dead—silence your mind and words on a page become more real than anything else. You chose your own pace and expand your brain and imagination while reading.

So read a book for your brain’s sake.
