Did you know audiobooks can help your mental health?

Do you ever feel like you don’t have time to read? Audiobooks may offer a more flexible way to relieve stress.

In a new study, adults who regularly listen to audiobooks have been proven to be less anxious.

“This new study reveals that of adults who listen to audiobooks:

  • More than 7 in 10 (72%) felt that audiobooks helped keep their brain stimulated
  • Over half (55%) said that audiobooks made them feel more connected to the world
  • Nearly 2 in 5 (38%) had listened more to audiobooks during the pandemic
  • 3 in 10 (30%) said they felt the wellbeing benefits of audiobooks more keenly during the pandemic.”

Whether it’s during your commute, workout, or making dinner, just because your busy doesn’t mean you have to give up the joy of a good story!
