Rivvly's Summer Reading List 📚



There are so many benefits to reading outside of just a fun hobby- it can actually improve your health!


Reading can stimulate feelings of comfort and affection, much like you would feel in the presence of a group of friends. Paired with stress relief and heightened feelings of empathy, reading can provide a temporary “escape” from the real world. It can also reduce symptoms of depression, promote empathy, prevent cognitive decline, and improve sleep. It might even lengthen your lifespan!
