Did you know that May is National Get Caught Reading Month? Grab a book, Kindle, or even listen to an audio book to participate. Here are some interesting facts we want to share with you about reading. 

  1. Reading has a beneficial impact on your physical and mental health: it reduces stress by 60%, slows heartbeat and relieves muscle tension. *
  2. Listening to a fluent reader helps improve reading skills and become proficient readers. *
  3. Those who read more than 3.5 hours per week live nearly two years longer than those who do not read at all. **

If you’re looking for a new book to read, my latest book The People’s Retirement Handbook is available on Amazon. I draw on decades of experience in financial planning and real-life stories to offer practical guidance when preparing for retirement.
