Use fun Games as a Mini Mind Vacation and Stress Reliever
My first instinct when I’m frustrated or need to calm down has never been to play an online game however, I have realized that it can be a very useful tool not only for some entertainment but for some stress relief.
It’s like a mini vacation for your mind from whatever is ailing you. You know what it’s like to get really entrenched in a book or your favorite television show, an online game will take you away the same way. It isn’t necessary to use an hour of your time like a television show would, even a ten minute game break can really get your mind off of your problems. Those few minutes of freedom your mind has from reeling can make a tremendous difference.
What kinds of games do you like to play? Do you feel like a puzzle game or perhaps a sport? One of my personal faves is bejeweled. I was a little bit addicted to this game. While it’s a simple concept, to align the jewels up by color so they disappear and give you points, it’s a great mini mind vacation.
Perhaps you would like a little bit more of an adrenaline rush, try bingo. Each time your number gets called you’ll feel that rush and anticipation for the next. Really, who doesn’t love a good old fashioned game of bingo! Get out your trolls and fluff up their hair cuz it’s time to play Party Bingo !
If it’s some silliness you’re after why not try flinging some penguins! Or birds! Angry birds has been a very popular game although if you get frustrated easily maybe you should opt for something a bit more calming like our good ol’ trusty friend, bingo.
Puzzle games are another one of my personal faves. Sudoku is my number one go to for a quick game fix with a good crossword coming in at a close second.
All of these are purely entertaining, fun games, and can take you away for however long you decide.
So next time someone pisses you off at work or you just need a few minutes to yourself, get a game going! When you’re done take a deep breath and tackle the real world once again.
I know you’ll go back for more.
