My husband, like a lot of husbands these days, loves video games. He isn’t addicted to them like some people are (he isn’t addicted to anything, actually; sadly, he is perfect). He still plays a lot of volleyball and does other things. But every night after work when he has nothing else going on, he can play whatever he wants for hours, totally content.
It is a skill I have envied for a very long time.
Hobbies are great. Important, even. But hobbies that you can do right at home practically anytime you want? Definitely better than great.
Recently, I had a bad couple of days. I was working too much, I guess, and not having enough fun. So last night, I played Spider Solitaire for a couple of hours, and I’m glad I did. Today I felt much better. I felt ready to go back to work and get things done.
So: my happiness tip of the day: On an especially bad day, just give yourself a break; play video games!
P.S. I know there must be some video games out there I’d like more than Spider Solitaire. Maybe I should put a little more effort into finding them.
Any suggestions? Any video games you know of that aren’t made primarily for boys but aren’t too girlie, either? Let me know!
