Quiet Library

Woman reading a bookReading can be a wonderful (and healthy) escape from the stress of everyday life.  Simply by opening a book, you allow yourself to be invited into a literary world that distracts you from your daily stressors.  Reading can even relax your body by lowering your heart rate and easing the tension in your muscles.  A 2009 study at the University of Sussex found that reading can reduce stress by up to 68%.
