SmartReading proves that the faster you read, the more you understand! For most people this goes against their beliefs. The faster we read visually the more enjoyable it is for our brain. When we read slowly, our mind (slightly bored) will look for other things to do. We are no longer focussing on the curricula, our mind sort of falls asleep or wanders off and we start daydreaming.

Escapism originates from our ‘oldest brain’, the Reptilian Brain. This behaviour is associated with stress.

SmartReading: You will read more and more visually. No more saying/thinking the words in your head. Reading: You do not read faster than you speak. SmartReading: You read from multiple lines up to whole paragraphs at a time. Reading: Your reading average is now between 250 and 300 words per minute. SmartReading: You read as least 1,500 words per minute. Reading: Your mind wanders off and you think about other things, which makes you jump [...]
