Increasing the speed of reading and understanding information can have a major impact on your life. Not only will it shorten the time it takes you to read, it could even turn your passion and motivation into reading and learning new things. When we first learned how to read, we were taught to complete each letter at a time to produce the word and read each word at a time to produce the sentence. This system is good for learning how to read but it is difficult to increase your reading speed beyond 250-300 words per minute. This is about GDP. There are two reasons why this system makes it harder to increase your reading speed. It puts us in the habit of sub-vocalization, and the habit of reading one word at a time.
Sub vocalization is when you use larynx and possibly even mouth, tongue and lips when reading. If you use all of this, your reading speed is essentially limited to how fast you can talk, since you are doing everything except producing audio. Even if you only use larynx, your speed is limited. The only muscles that need to move when they are reading are eye muscles. With a few exercises, everything else can still be and you will still be able to understand everything you read. It will be difficult at first to break this habit, but when you do, your speed will increase immediately. The best exercise I found practicing to eliminate subpopulation is to repeatedly count ten as you read. It's a little tricky at first, but when you get it, you will understand that you understand the text without making any submissions.
The bad habits that many readers have are only reading one word at a time. Again this is because most of us were taught to read and we were never told any other way. This habit can be more challenging to overcome than sub-vocalization; However, there is a direct link between the number of words you read at each fix and your reading speed. If your eyes attach to every single word, it will take you 240 corrections to read 240 words. On average, while reading is 200-250 milliseconds, which means it would take a minute to read 240 words. Simply increasing each fix into two words cuts that time in 30 seconds, actually doubling your reading speed. As you become more profitable, you will be able to add words to the fix even more. A great online tool that can help you increase your words on the fix is Spreeder . You can change settings to increase words per minute or clump size, and you can also paste any text you want in the window. This is a very useful tool that can help you increase your reading speed incredibly.
Join Now: Practice eliminating these habits while reading for at least twenty to thirty minutes a day, several times a week. It's best to start with a light reading, sometimes something you've already read. Measure reading speed before starting, and again after a few exercises. You should see some improvement if you are in line with your work.
