Think of someone you love and read your favorite romantic poem, or song, aloud. Reading aloud increases your attention spans and ability to focus on what is being read. When you are reading aloud, you may find that all of your energy is put into the task at hand without the temptation of distractions. You get so focused that you won’t even notice that you are strengthening your mental and verbal skills. It also affects positively on your emotions. You may even find yourself laughing as you do this for the first couple times and that is great, because laughter itself is healthy for you.
