Recently, I’ve been doing 12 hour or so gaming marathons. Hardcore? Maybe. Crazy? Yes. And so I stopped my marathons just to deliver a message to everyone. It might seem short, it might seem rather obvious, but you do have to admit that I’m right.
Play Healthy, Live Healthy.
Ensure that you have at least 7 real world hours of sleep everyday. Eat a nice breakfast of real world food. Engage in real world activities.
Gaming may nourish your mind, but it wouldn’t nourish your body. Unless you’re doing 12 hours of non-stop Dance Dance Revolution on a dancepad. But that’s beyond crazy.
And of course, have fun. Gaming is not supposed to give you undue stress. It’s supposed to be a past time. To relieve stress. Undue stress will affect your health. So don’t get so worked up about being unable to complete a level of your favourite game.
Peace. I’m off to Vana’diel.
