In the late afternoon when I'm tired and a cup of tea seems like a good idea, I usually open up a book. My brief respite from the world may not last long, but it does refresh me.
Most nights, before I close my eyes I read a novel. I have found this practice usually chases away any nightmares. At least, it works for me.
When do you read? What was the last book you read? Do you read novels, or only non-fiction?
Reading novels is a good habit to develop. Several studies prove this. The following article offers a good overview of the results you can expect from reading fiction.
So open up a novel today. It'll do you good. :-)
