Why do you read publications? Is it a form of entertainment, a hobby, for educational purposes or is it as a fact that you are left with no option? Let’s say you are at the bus or train station or at the airport waiting for your departure. Skimming through these pages may have something remarkable in your life without you getting to know it. There is something said that whatever you sow, you reap. Thus what you put into your mind as input, you get back from your character as output. Be careful with what you read. It has even been said people get initiated into cultic association from reading what they should not have read. There are magazines that educate, especially those that tell of “how-to-do’ topics. With such publications you can sit at home and learn a trade or hobby. Think of publications that tell of ways to cater for a garden or pet, publications the offer first aid tips, publications that provide homemaking arts. There are many things which you will never have the time to gain knowledge of if you were to attend lectures. The magazines have these for you to exploit. You must not let your reading or leisure time waste away. Read something that will leave footprints in your life. Most of our training will be easily available when we have left school are when we are already implanted in another profession. Things of practical value cannot be only learned in schools. We learn everyday from our environment and the little things we find around us. If you could get it later, it might even be costly or you might even be working with people who might have littlie or no interest teaching you. Why not take the opportunity to look for periodicals that will teach you some of these things. We must bear in mind that studies through magazines may not seem to be much of a useful importance, but they help to widen your point of view and can help you in other ways. For example, history geography and culture of other people enables you to use your mind to travel to other places or talk to other people. Magazines are something like a muscle in your body. They exercise your mind in either a positive or negative way, they develop or contract your way of doing things. Whatever you do is that which your mind tells you. When you read educative publications, you will find that your intellectual efforts steadily build up and become more creative. It all depends on you. You can be that which you want to be form what you choose to read.
