There are many types of cures for stress. Many people prefer to exercise, have a good dinner, or simply have a nice walk by the beach. Stress relief is often a personal therapy. Me, I have discovered the potential that video games have in the fight against stress. In the beginning, I did not understand the reasons behind it but after some research, I found that there are actually solid reasons why video gaming is an excellent anti-stress agent.

It is time spent alone
Spending time alone is certainly a good remedy for stress. Video games are usually played alone and are thus a great way to combat stress.

It diverts your attention away from serious matters
Since most games command your full attention, they are an excellent way to forget, at least temporarily, the tensions caused by professional and personal life. If the front of your gaming console, you can only focus on the game. Nothing else really matters at that point. This is a great way for the brain to let go of things.

It’s a good anger outlet
Shooting the head of a zombie when you are angry is a good way to let off the anger you might be feeling. It is in fact better to be shooting at the fictitious characters of a game rather than at your real-life companions.

It’s entertaining
This is the first and foremost reason why games are played. One can be in any type of world, doing virtually anything that one wants. It is the ideal escape route from your daily routines. It is like taking a daily vacation to a faraway world of your desire and coming back more relaxed and better able to cope with the difficulties of daily life.
