I am not a fan of gaming but some games, which I fondly call stress-busting games, are a part of my routine. While I was a huge fan of action games when I was a kid, as I grew up, I shifted towards strategy games.
Many games bring back a lot of childhood memories and that is the reason that why I love playing them when I need a break. The games which I play are mostly physical games but sometimes I love spending my time on the screen playing games like solitaire and mahjong.
I read it once that things like collecting stamps is like a time capsule. Looking at them teleports you to the time when you collected them. Every piece has a memory and that is exactly why I love looking at things from the past. In fact, doing the exact things that I used to do when I was a kid is really heart warming.
Life is stressful and I take out some time to play these three games which are highly stress-busting for me.
We got our first computer when I was 12 years old. This was the first game that I started playing. My father would allow me 1 hour of computer time then and I would make the most of it by playing Solitaire.
I am not a huge fan of apps and then I came across this wonderful website https://www.solitaire.org/. Quick to load, this site has the simplest version of this age old game. Not just the instructions, the site tells about fun facts and history of this game – which I didn’t know earlier!
Stress-busting Games: Match 3 Games
I started playing these (Jewel Thief being my favourite) when I was introduced to the internet. They are addictive but I am always limiting my time like I did when I was young. You can check out some amazing match 3 games here.
I also loved playing Mahjong, Pin Balls and Pacman and you can even find games inspired by them here. Match 3 games
Block and Puzzle Games
When I am really cutting on my screen time, I love playing with Lego blocks and jigsaw puzzles.
I am a huge fan of games when played as a stress-busting activity. Do you have any favourite games?
