  • READING TIPS

    • Slow reading helps in better retention is a myth.
    • Reading is a process that involves seeing, recognizing, relating & understanding words in a particular context.
    • Discovering ones reading speed helps in self-motivation for developing reading habit.
    • One can develop reading habit at any age.
    • Dyslexia is a gift of speed readers to consider it as a disorder is a myth.
    • There is a science of reading and when one learns it one can easily improve ones reading habit.
    • Our brain can understand two or three or more words at a time and our eyes can see and recognize two or three words at a time. By developing a habit of reading two or three words at a time enhances speed of reading.
    • If one reads any text with 100% concentration one can remember entire text.
    • Eye movement exercises are helpful in eradicating habit of regression and improving reading speed with retention.
    • Reading is one of the powerful tool to develop concentration.
    • There are various styles of reading which can be used for various kinds of subject matter and texts.
    • Teaching how to read with phonic method will help in developing public speaking skills and pronunciation only but it damages the natural power of reading with speed.
    • Average reading speed is 200 words per minute with 80-100% retention.
    • With practice one can read with the speed of 500-1000 words per minute with 80-100% retention regardless of any text matter or subject.
    • Children have the natural and best ability to read faster with better retention and they learn the science of reading they will marvel in developing reading habit.
    • Keeping back straight while reading is more effective.
    • Taking 15-20 deep breaths before reading can help a lot in retention.
    • Reading as an activity sometimes gets boring depending on the text we have selected but more often it gets boring due to speed of reading. The more slower the speed the more are chances to get bore.
    • We have two types of vision peripheral and tunnel vision. While reading our tunnel vision gets activated as we were taught to see one word at a time in school. Nevertheless with tunnel vision you can see & read more than 2-4 words at a time and can improve your reading speed.
    • Reading can become a fun activity if reading habit is cultivated. Parents play major role in developing reading habit of children by creating a reading culture at home.
    • To create a reading habit in children parents must create a good collection of books at home and create a home library for children to read. If parents sit with children for reading that cultivates powerful read habit in children.
    • Reading cultivates new brain cells that helps in development of creativity.
    • Reading a book stimulates more brain cells then watching movie or television. Watching TV or movie is more of a passive activity while reading takes you to the creative zone of mind where variety of thinking styles are ignited.
    • Cultivated reading habit removes fear of examination from children’s mind and adds greater confidence.
    • Reading not only improves IQ but it also triggers EQ and MI (Multiple Intelligences).
    • Reading rejuvenates mind and fills mind with an energy of thoughts that can bring greater change in ones entire personality.
    • To develop reading habit one must find out books, articles, stories related to ones own interest on every day basis.
    • To develop reading habit one must find out books, articles, stories related to ones own interest on every day basis. Reading with speed is a skill just like drive a bike with speed. The way our focus and attention span increases with the increase speed in the same way during reading with speed process our focus and attention span also increases which in turn helps us to retain faster and for longer time.
    • One can learn the skill of reading with speed at any age. Nevertheless due to preconditioning of eye-brain coordination pattern it may take some time for elders to adapt with the new system of reading but children adapt much more faster than adults.
    • Children are the fastest learners on the planet earth and they can learn the science of reading with speed much more faster then any adult.
    • A juggler can juggle more than 2 balls with 2 hands in the same way our 2 eyes have the capacity to see and our 2 sided brain has the capacity to retain more than 2 words at a time. If we practice this ability we can become the fastest readers with greater retention.
    • Reading variety of subjects creates a special kind of flair in your personality. It not only enhances your knowledge, intelligences but also adds greater value in your life.
    • You are what you read is as much true as you are what you think and you are what you eat.
    • When one does physical exercises it enhances body cells and recharges it in the same way when one reads a book or a story or anything it enhances brain cells and recharges mind.
    • One of the biggest hurdle in improving reading speed with retention is old belief system that slow reading is the only way to understand any text. Replace old belief with new belief that “I can read and retain 100% with speed”.
