Just six minutes of reading can reduce our stress levels by half, according to a 2009 study. Earlier research showed that half an hour of reading is as relaxing as half an hour of yoga, and another study showed that reading reduces the level of cortisol – the stress hormone – as much as Tai Chi. In fact, scientists have shown reading to have a physically and mentally relaxing effect for almost a century.
But what if you don’t know what to read? It’s hardly news that we’re overloaded with information and exhausted by decision fatigue.
With a Book Therapy session, you can share information with the Book Doctor and get back a prescription of books suited to your individual needs, tastes and problems. You’ll discover something new, get a different perspective and escape into a wonderfully unknown world, if only for a little while.
