One of the best discipline of successful people is that they always read books on different subjects. One important point to always remember, fast reading is the process of training the brain to read content faster.
- Keep your body in the right position while reading. Sit up straight in a chair. Keep your feet on the ground.
- Hold the book tilted in front of you.
- There should be a distance of at least one and a half feet between your face and the book.
- Don’t hold the book too close.
- Choose the right time for this and read for about 15 minutes at the same time every day.
- Set reading time limits. Use a watch, digital clock or stopwatch for this.
- Set the right goal. Aim to read two or three sections of a lesson in an hour.
- Keep the book with you so you can take notes or write special words.
- Don’t read with a stressed mind. Try to read with concentration.
- Read slightly faster than comfortable.
- Feel that you are reading a little faster than your normal speed. But the reading you are still doing should be understood.
- Move the eyes fast. Your eyes read in groups of words at the same time (usually three).
- Try to increase the group of words from three to six at a time. Use a pencil or your pointer finger as a guide.
Check the assessment. There is no point in speeding up reading if comprehension is not happening. Reads at a speed of 70-80 percent. If the comprehension is high, it may read faster than that.
