A Popular Question Jambites ask is how to start Reading for Jamb. It is normal to ask where to start reading from so long as Jamb UTME is Concerned.
One thing about reading is that when you leave a “book” for two months, it will leave you for six months. This obeys the law of Inertia which states that a body will continue in its state of rest unless disturbed.
Your brain will continue to be away from books unless it is used to Reading. After trying to read for a very long time, you will notice that the motivation to read is entering you gradually.
Reading is a bit like exercise for your brain. Just like when you stop working out for a while, your muscles start to lose their strength, the same happens with your brain when you stop reading.
If you leave a book untouched for two months, it might feel like the book has left you for six months. This is because the information you’ve read starts to fade away from your memory, and it takes a lot more effort to get back into the rhythm of reading and understanding the content.
This concept is similar to the law of inertia in physics. The law of inertia states that an object will stay at rest or keep moving at a constant speed in a straight line, unless it is acted upon by an external force.
In the context of reading, your brain is the object at rest. If you’re not used to reading, your brain will continue to stay away from books, unless you make a conscious effort to change that.
However, the good news is that just like physical exercise, the more you read, the easier it becomes. When you first start reading after a long break, it might feel difficult. You might struggle to concentrate or understand the content. But if you keep trying, you’ll notice that it gets easier. The motivation to read starts to grow inside you, bit by bit.
This is because your brain is adapting to the new activity. It’s like training a muscle – the more you use it, the stronger it gets. So, the more you read, the better your brain gets at processing and understanding the information.
This is why it’s important to make reading a regular habit. Even if you start with just a few pages a day, over time, you’ll find that you’re able to read more and more, and that you actually start to enjoy it.
