Games are great! They can provide opportunities to relax and unwind after a stressful day – but they can also increase our stress by taking up too much time, too much money, and more.
Are you addicted to Candy Crush?
First, you may not even realize it, but if you’re past, say, level 20, you’re probably addicted, so let’s just get that out of the way right off the bat.
Second, and more importantly, what you may not realize is the extreme cost of this addiction. Candy Crush, like so many other games, is costing you time, money andfriends!
Get help now!
Now, seriously, I don’t have a problem with games like Candy Crush, but I did notice that when I played them, I really did lose time, money and friends. So I don’t play any kind of game like that at all any more. I ignore invitations and am straight up with friends that try to convince me to play whatever it is they’re into. And trust me, they’re all into something. We have friends come over on a Saturday night and it never fails: at some point in the evening, everyone is staring at their iPhone!
So check out the reasons why I don’t play Candy Crush Saga or similar games, and be sure to watch the interesting clip in the article from ABC about how Candy Crush in particular is addicting the nation.
And if you’re playing (and I know you are), what level are you on, and how much time, on average, do you think you play each day? Be Honest!
Thanks, and have a great weekend!
