3 Tips To Effectively Increase Reading Speed!

While many new ways of acquiring knowledge have came up in recent times, reading still remains the best way to stay updated.

Below are the 3 tips to become a voracious reader:

1. Rapid Devouring:

It is all about the concepts. Everything works around ideas. Once you get an understanding of ideas, the implementation gets very easy. Devouring text content can be done at a very fast speed. You need not read every word slowly and wait for yourself trying to mug up. Instead, you can implement rapid reading (like Swami Vivekananda did), in order to get the gist of the matter written in the text.

2. Effective Visualization:

Imagination rules the world. Our brain is truly limitless in its potentials. Simply believing you can read faster will help you master the art. Reading becomes more effective if you can actually visualize matter at the pace at which you are going through pages. This also helps improve creative powers of brain to an amazing extent.

3. Big Target:

If you place a small comic book in front of yourself and give yourself a day to read, you will never improve your reading speed. Our brain loves challenges. In order to force it to adapt reading at a faster pace, you need to place giant books in front of  yourself, and giving yourself relatively shorter time to finish off.

The more books you read, the more you evolve! Whatever you go through in your day to day life is stored in your brain. The wonderful thing is, you can access it anytime you need this knowledge for application!
