We have always heard the disadvantages of playing video games from our mom……like eyes will get weak…..or your body will be inactive.
But What if I tell you that you also can reap benefits from playing video games then……
So, the next time someone strongly recommends you to don’t play video games……you will have an answer for them.
Let’s get straight into the 5 most shocking benefits of playing video games: –
1.) IMPROVE YOUR VISION
YES, IT CAN……
HEY DON’T CLOSE THE PAGE……STOP…..LISTEN
Scientists are discovering games in moderation may actually improve—not strain—your vision.
In one study, 10 weeks of play was associated with a greater ability to discern between different shades of grey. Another had participants try to play games using only their “lazy” eye, with the “good” one obscured. Those players showed significant improvement in the affected eye.
But one fact is true, and that is, if you sit too close to your Television, laptop or mobile…..then your eyesight will get weak…..So, keep a good distance between you and the Television.
If you have a 1080p T.V, then we suggest at least 5 feet viewing distance.
If you have a 4k Ultra HD T.V, then we suggest at least 3.3 feet viewing distance.
So, play video games but at a good distance to improve your vision.
2.) KEEP YOUR MIND ACTIVE
We all know what it’s like:
You fail to notice road signs while driving; you find yourself in your kitchen, staring at the floor, not sure why you went in there in the first place. Even young people experience moments like these, but as we age, cognitive lapses become more frequent and problematic.
Video games keep your active and fresh all the time…..as you are playing “COUNTER STRIKE” so much…..HAHA….Some games promote a whole-body level of interaction, even those requiring a simple handheld controller.
So, you will be able to remember everything as your mind is active.
3.) SLOW AGING PROCESS
Researchers at the University of Iowa in Iowa City conducted a study, they found that people who played 10 hours of a specially designed video game that focused on improving the speed and quality of mental processing abilities were able to delay the natural decline of a range of cognitive skills — in some cases, by up to seven years, said Fredric Wolinsky, a professor at the University of Iowa’s College of Public Health and lead author of the new study.
So, video games can help prevent aging.
4.) MAKING FASTER DECISIONS
As we all know that an active person will make quicker decisions or react in a split second than other lazy people. Video games make your mind active and you will make faster decisions in life. Some have this ability inherited, but some need these video games to build up this ability.
In video games, players need to adapt quickly or make quick decisions in order to win the game…..so Gamers practice these things daily and end up enhancing ability.
In one study, players who were immersed in fast-paced games were 25 percent faster in reacting to questions about an image they had just seen compared to non-players.
5.) MAKING NEW SOCIAL CONNECTIONS
Gamers are always considered as introverts, sitting in their house and playing video games…..but they are not ones who make more social connections all across the world.
The rise of multiplayer experiences online has given way to a new form of socializing in which players work together to solve problems.
But studies have shown games can also be the catalyst for friends to gather in person: roughly 70 percent of all players play with friends at least some of the time.
So guys keep playing video games and I will play too.
