Knowing when to stop

With video games, it’s important to know when it’s time to put the controller down and rest your head. Frequent gaming can cause many long-term problems and these of course range in seriousness from sore wrists to hallucinations and obesity! That said, you only need to employ a little caution and common sense to know when it’s time to stop gaming.

If you don’t give your body time to relax and unwind, then you will certainly feel the effects. No matter how close you are to completing that next level, when you’re feeling fatigued from playing video games it’s time to stop.

We recommend you go out for a walk and take in the fresh air, or just hang out with some friends and give yourself a good few days away from your TV screen. It’s all about knowing when to relax, so don’t let video gaming become an addiction!
