10 Reasons Why Adults Who Play Video Games Are Happier!
1. They’re more connected to their inner child.
Few adults really get to do anything playful after work and family life set in, which makes it pretty understandable as to why so many American adults are depressed and bored with life.
Unlike adults who don’t play video games, however, gaming adults have a daily chance to engage in playful behavior, similarly to how many of us used to play when we were younger. This stronger connection to your inner child can help you be happier and enjoy life more fully.
2. They have an easy escape from the stress of life.
As we get older, we’re continually faced with more pressures in life. We now have student loans to pay back, jobs to succeed in and bills to pay for. I don’t know about you, I often feel like all of this adult stuff is kind of overrated.
Playing video games is a great way to de-stress from the demands of everyday life and do something that you enjoy just for the sake of enjoying it.
3. They are exposed to greater creativity and imagination.
Anyone who has played any video game can attest to the fact that you’re exposed to greater creativity when gaming.
Whether it’s a realistic video game like Call of Duty or a highly imaginative video game like Pikmin 3, using your imagination to put yourself in the mindset of your character and their world is a highly stimulating, creative exercise for your brain.
