Bibliotherapy is a form of therapy that utilizes books and literature...
...alongside other treatment methods, to support mental health.
It can help broaden perspectives, shed light on your own past and symptoms, and boost self-esteem, empathy, contentment, and more!
When you start to read a really good book it is often hard to put it down, the story captivates you and time disappears as you become absorbed. It's a magical feeling!
Choosing to read can provide a vast number of benefits.
So what are the mental health benefits of making reading a regular habit?
If you’d like to try reading more often, choose books that are of interest to you.
No matter what type of book you choose, simply reading a few pages when you can is what counts.
When was the last time you read a book to enjoy the benefits or for mental peace?
