Join Paul Nowak for an in-depth discussion in this video Using your hand as a guide, part of Top 5 Speed Reading Tips.
- The simplest way to improve your reading speed is to use your hand as a guide. Now, you can use your hand, your finger or a pen, whatever you feel most comfortable with, but the reason why it's helpful is because your eyes are naturally attracted to motion. Now, if you're using your hand, this is also a very good way to improve your concentration, and if you have better concentration, you'll read a little faster and you'll also have better comprehension. Some people notice an instant boost of 20 to 30 percent in their reading speed just by using their hand while they're reading on the page. So try this out for 15 minutes and I think you'll find it to be a very helpful way to improve your reading speed and your comprehension.
