BooksandTrees 4046 Posted November 9, 2021 Author Share Posted November 9, 2021 I managed to exercise for 1 hour and then play the drums for 30 minutes. I had so much fun. It was the first time I've played in a year and missed it. I stopped because I got stressed learning something new, a common issue for people who quit video games looking for a new hobby. But I enjoyed it. One of the other things that is a trigger for me is redundant tasks at work. If I'm doing something with load times it will make me want to play runescape or pokemon go because they're somewhat afk games. But I know that will be bad so I don't do it. I remember the brain fog and exhaustion it gave me and I enjoy the mental clarity I have. Solutions I've had are little exercises, stretching, podcasts, dancing to music, and partial journaling like right now. I don't read or anything that takes up brain power because I think physical movement provides energy and prevents tiredness and boredom which also are 2 huge triggers for gamers. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
