The Effects of Games on Your MentalHealth


In today’s world, video games have become commonplace and are now enjoyed by adults just as much as they are by kids. The average age of gamers has increased tremendously over the past twenty years. More people are now exposed to video games than ever before.

That much you’ve surely noticed yourself, but have you ever wondered how video games could affect your mental health?

Video games can help you stay focused

Researches have conducted studies looking at how video games can affect your brain and behavior. The results suggest that playing video games can affect the parts of your brain responsible for attention and visuospatial skills. Video games seem to be able to make your brain more efficient in these areas. The researchers also looked at the parts of your brain associated with the reward system. They wanted to see how it is related to video game addiction.
What researchers have learned is that playing video games can change how your brain performs. Playing video games affects your attention. Some studies suggest that you’re likely to show improvements in several types of attention. The parts of your brain responsible for attention can be more efficient and help you sustain attention on longer tasks. They also suggest that playing video games can improve your visuospatial reasoning skills.

Other benefits of video games
Among other benefits, studies have found that video games can improve the physical and mental health of patients. There’s evidence that video games can be effective at reducing anxiety or pain. Patients with chronic illnesses or those who have to undertake painful medical procedures found that they feel better from playing video games.
Studies have also found that playing certain action-oriented games can help treat dyslexia in young kids. Studies suggest that kids who play video games see the same improvement as with traditional treatments. However, traditional treatments tend to be more time-consuming and are not as fun for children.

The risks of video game addiction
However, video games can also be addictive. Video game addiction is most often found in players of multiplayer online games and online gambling games. The two are rarely categorized together but are quite similar in nature. Researchers have discovered that video game addiction can cause changes to your brain’s reward system. They have found that video game addicts experience cravings similar to those experienced by sufferers of most other addictive disorders.
Researchers have found that video games can trigger your brain’s reward system in much the same way as gambling can. Playing on slot machines, such as the norske spilleautomater, can give a similar rush of adrenaline as playing fast-paced or luck-based video games. Because of this, it is important that you play in moderation.
Can video games and gambling help stave off old age?
On a positive note, studies have shown that activities such as gaming and gambling can help keep your brain fresh for longer in life. As you age, you use certain parts of your brain less and less. In turn, those areas of your brain become weaker, and you become senile faster. But, there are things you can do to help slow this process down. Things that can help keep your brain strong as you age.
Researchers have discovered that people who busy themselves with a lot of stimulating activities tend to retain their faculties better in old age. Activities that involve concentration and thought seem to slow the aging process.

Gaming and gambling can be two such activities. Strategy games, for example, involve a lot of concentration and thinking. Puzzle games do this too. Poker is another game that seems to help keep your mind fresh in your old age. There’s no shortage of people in the latter years of their life who play poker regularly. Not only does poker require a lot of concentration and thought, but it also serves as an opportunity for you to socialize with other people. A game of poker will often involve you talking and making jokes with the other players. Socialization seems to do wonders for both our short-term and long-term mental health.

Another card game that can help stimulate your mind is blackjack. Your short-term memory is most used when playing blackjack. Good short-term memory is very important for staving off senility. Blackjack requires a good knowledge of odds and memorization techniques.
However, if you have problems with social anxiety, then playing poker or blackjack in person can be a tough task. Thankfully, because of the Internet and the growth of online casinos, you can exercise your mind from the comfort of your own home. Playing casino games, such as the casino games at GemSlots, can have the same positive effect on you as playing them in person. If you’re having trouble finding a casino, there are also websites that compile online casino reviews. These can help you choose the right online casino for you.

  1. Menyaksikan film di layar lebar kini sudah menjadi gaya hidup bagi sebagian besar masyarakat Indonesia. Banyak yang rela meluangkan waktunya beberapa kali dalam satu bulan hanya untuk datang ke bioskop dan menyaksikan film-film terbaru baik dari dalam dan juga luar negeri.
    Banyaknya film box office yang tayang di Indonesia menjadi salah satu alasan rajinnya orang-orang mendatangi bioskop. Agar menonton bioskop terasa lebih nyaman dan menyenangkan, berikut beberapa tips yang bisa kumparan (kumparan.com) rangkum untuk Anda.
    1. Beli tiket online

    Seiring berkembangnya teknologi, kini Anda tidak perlu lagi harus langsung datang ke bioskop hanya untuk membeli tiket. Lewat fitur reservasi online yang kini tersedia di beberapa jaringan bioskop Indonesia, Anda bisa mendapatkan tiket bioskop hanya lewat sentuhan jari.
    2. Pilih seat yang asyik
    Ketika menonton film di bioskop, banyak orang yang menghindari bangku di deret depan. Pasalnya, selain kurang nyaman untuk mata, posisi ini juga akan membuat leher Anda pegal. Jika masih kosong, pilihlah bangku di baris tengah agar posisi layar dan suara dapat tertangkap dengan baik.
    3. Pilih jam tayang yang sepi

    Malas mendengar orang berbicara satu sama lain atau anak-anak menangis di tengah pemutaran film? Lebih baik pilihlah jam tayang yang jarang didatangi oleh para penonton. Misalnya, untuk Anda yang bisa mengambil waktu di tengah pekan, Anda bisa memilih waktu di tengah pekan tersebut dan menonton pada siang hari. Dijamin, satu bioskop serasa milik sendiri!
    4. Beli camilan sebelum masuk teater
    Daripada mulut diam saja saat menyaksikan film favorit, jangan lupa untuk membeli camilan seperti popcorn dan juga minuman supaya ada yang bisa Anda nikmati saat film berlangsung. Tapi ingat, setelah selesai sampah makanannya jangan lupa dibuang ke tempat sampah, ya!
    5. Manfaatkan berbagai promo menarik

    Bagi Anda yang gemar menonton film di bioskop, Anda perlu mengecek berbagai promo menarik yang diberikan. Contohnya, digibank by DBS memberikan penawaran menarik berupa bonus saldo M-Tix sebesar Rp 200.000, hanya dengan memasukan kode promo DIGIMTIX saat melakukan pendaftaran digibank.
    Tidak hanya itu, untuk setiap pengisian ulang (top-up) M-Tix sebesar Rp 200.000, Anda juga berhak mendapatkan saldo tambahan sebesar Rp 50.000. Menarik, bukan?
