It is vitally important that we do what we can to reduce stress so we can become healthy enough to enjoy our lives and achieve our goals. Games are an excellent way to do this. Just because we get older doesn’t mean we should stop playing!
We can do a great deal to relieve stress by playing games and should make time in our life for the things we enjoy. Stress is one of the biggest health risks we face and poor health reduces overall feelings of happiness in life. We find friends and develop our “tribes” of friends and fans by playing games together.
Having these networks of friends has been shown to be a key component of happiness and good mental health! So find friends to play games with. If possible get out of the house and find groups you can meetup with for game nights.
