What are your favorite stress relief games? A surprise to some, confirmation for others.....yes, games can relieve your stress. This rings true whether you like a round of tennis or a game of solitaire.
Most stress relief games are quick and easy to access. In our highly digital age, online stress relief is easy to find.
The goal is to find a game that you enjoy.
SOME POPULAR GAMES...
These games can be played as offline or online stress relief options:
o Board Games (Monopoly, Scrabble, Checkers, Chess)
o Card Games (Solitaire, Hearts, Spades, UNO, Go Fish)
o Mind Games
o Puzzles (Soduko, Crossword)
There are two things you have to remember:
- Games you use for stress relief usually should not involve violence, or increase tension and anxiety.
- Balance, balance, balance is the key....too much gaming can create more stress from poor time management.
Why it works?....
Simply put, the game serves as a distraction and can provide stress relief laughter. It takes your mind off of your stress and provides an outlet. By focusing on something you enjoy doing, everything else for a moment fades to the background........sounds pretty good, huh.
This "moment of distraction" gives your body a chance to regain it's normal balance after experiencing stress.
Outdoor games like tennis or basketball help reduce stress in another way. The physical activity reduces the amount of stress hormones released into the body. This reduces your stress, as well as the symptoms it can cause.
