Curious on how to live longer, here’s Billionaire Mark Cuban proofs backed up by research since he is reading 4 to 5 hours a day about national & local news, technology and his emails.
In a recent interview, Cuban said. “I tell my kids… ‘Somebody who doesn’t read lives one life, somebody who reads an unlimited number of lives.'”
Yale University School of Public Health researchers found reading 30 minutes a day helped participants with the age 50 and older live on average two years longer than their non-reading counterparts, regardless of their situation in life; health, wealth, gender and education.
Checking his children, all are readers when they were younger, both girls would be rewarded with “shoes or whatever they wanted” after they read a certain number of pages, Cuban said. Then, the family could have conversations about what they read to make sure they understand what they read.
But according to Cuban, he had to adopt a different strategy for his son, now 13, who doesn’t like to read. Cuban was worried his son’s ambivalence toward books would “hurt him long term” — until he realized his son was learning in different ways on Tiktok with the same result since nowadays, like in the Philippines, 75% of Filipinos in social media.
