Hello my darlings!
Today, I have decided to take a day off from life from all the hustle and bustle… Today, I am on a gamer binge. Sometimes, we just need a moment to escape and just forget all the stress that life can put us through. To me, the best medicine is a game that I cannot get enough of, a game that allows me to get lost in another world, someone else’s story. I love that I can pretend to be someone else for just a little bit. Now, that’s not to say that I don’t love who I am because trust me, I love my life and wouldn’t change a thing but, putting yourself in the shoes of your favorite character can be an awesome thing! Who’s with me here??
Do you ever feel like you use gaming to simply get away? I suppose some people prefer to take a vacation these things but, let’s face it, not everyone has the funds nor the time. There’s nothing easier than popping in a game and letting your creativity take over. I am an artist so, creating art is another way for me “get away” without actually “getting away.” I can get lost in drawing a portrait or in a painting for hours but, today I felt like getting lost in a game instead… I’m sure plenty of you can relate.
I love that I can get so into a game that I don’t even notice that I’ve been playing it for hours. I think we all need that at times… we all need to just let it all go and submerge our brain in something that has our full attention. Gaming really is to me, a sense of therapy. How many of you agree? Do you feel like gaming is a good stress reliever? I know I do, for sure. I mean… there are those times that your brain just won’t stop… you know those nights when you lie there in bed exhausted, and you’re flooded with thoughts of what went wrong that day or what you need to do tomorrow. Sometimes we just need something to keep all these thoughts at bay for a minute and gaming, in my opinion, is perfect for that… I know many of you would have to agree.
Honestly, I think more people should game as a way of relieving stress. Not that I think everyone has to be a “gamer” but, even games like Candy Crush or Bubble Witch, both games I actually love myself. I’m even quite the champion on my UNO game… LOL. I use those daily as a way of escaping even if it’s only for a few minutes at a time. I think anything that gives you that release is a good thing. Gaming is my absolute favorite stress reliever as I mentioned in the title but, it’s my only way of finding some much-needed relaxation… I even love losing myself in a good book from time to time. Truth be told… it best be a really good book to hold my attention until the end… My imagination can seem very real sometimes and I love it when a good book allows me to create images of a character or a scene in my mind… I’m super lucky to have a good friend, Didi…(a name I actually gave her in kindergarten and it just kinda stuck, yeah we’ve been friends for a long time!)…But, she happens to be an avid reader and she reads all the time, so she is my go-to girl when I’m in need of a good read. Close friends are great for these things. Our taste is very similar so, I know if she loves a book I will too. She’s also my Netflix junkie twin, for lack of better words, but..that actually really does sum it up pretty well!
I have to admit days like today are my absolute favorite. I can be whoever I want in a game and actually pretend to be as hardcore as I feel I am in real life… LOL. You just can’t beat that! I can fight off a hoard of zombies or play as my favorite superhero’s… yeah, I’m a nerd like that way and I am so okay with that! Life can be so overwhelming at times, I don’t know about y’all but, I need days like today. I can sit in my room and hide away from the world and explore places and stories that I may never have been able to otherwise.
What are some of your favorite ways of relieving the stress of daily life? Do we have similar ways of de-stressing? Maybe it’s Yoga or working out… whatever it may be… let me know. This gal is always up for trying new things! I will surely take your advice to heart… I promise!
As always… I am OH SO HAPPY you decided to stop by Ky’s Korner today! Let’s chat again very soon my friends!!
