Speed reading : the eye gym

Here is a exercise that can be done for 5 minutes every day :
– Select a text.
– Read only (and quickly) the first and the last word in each line.

This exercise aims at maintaining speed of eye movements, even if you don’t understand the text.

When you will increase your horizontal vision span, you will be able to read and understand each line with the same speed.
