If you are someone who enjoys solitude, then do try cozying up in the corner with a good book in your hands. A cup of coffee along would be even more wonderful! Reading fiction will help you de-stress. Studies also show that reading fiction will help you understand other people’s feelings and also teach you to empathise with them. A book can do what humans can’t but this doesn’t mean that you should turn into a book worm. It is good to have a few hours for yourself each day but you should not totally cut off yourself from the world outside.
