So i often think we as gamers need to remember its okay to go offline. You’re thinking okay Otome. What do you mean by that. Well let me tell you my dear reader.
I mean two things from that.
1. Don’t forget we live on this big ball with nature, and birds, and sunshine. Every now and then get out of your room, or house and see the outside world. Your mental health and eyes will thank you. Even if it just to decompress from that last boss battle, or that crazy round you just had in a shooter.
2. Also probably most importantly. Don’t forget to take time for you. Yes i know you’re thinking you game there for you already are taking time for you. Yes that is true enough but i mean more then that. Don’t forget your favorite shows or maybe that one anime you’ve been meaning to watch but you just haven’t had a moment to yourself when you get online to do that.
That is what going offline is for we gamers love our games. No duh, and we also love our gaming community we’ve built up of all our friends. However that said. I don’t know about you all but at times when i get online i go into the who is gonna invite me to their party first mode.
Don’t get me wrong it is wonderful to feel loved by my gaming friends but as someone who cut the cable cord and use my xbox to stream there are times where i just want a me day
If i join my friends later on great but i really want a day where i can binge watch some Downton Abbey or just get losy in a youtube hole and take a mental break from killing bosses or grinding that next level out.
Maybe you all can be in a party with friends who are gaming or doing their own thing while you are doing yours and if you can that is awesome. I know a few people like that but i would just remind you to take time for you.
Enjoy going offline and being in the moment as much as we all love going into our digital worlds of choice. 🙂
So here is my question for you all. Aside from gaming what is something you all do for you. Give me another hobby you like. 🙂 i can’t wait to read them.
