Stress is an energy that is either an external or internal force. It is a reality of life. A certain amount of stress makes us work faster with more focus. It encourages an ambition and has motivated evolutionary shifts. However, stress can also be very unhealthy. Dysfunctional stress is an internal process where the level of anxiety due to an external force becomes overwhelming to one’s system. This includes your physical and emotional well-being.
We write about finding the balance between doing what you like and what you need to do to survive. Sometimes what you need to do takes over and we forget to have a little fun. Fun is considered frivolous or a waste of time. We know that fun is needed to make the difficult times more bearable and yet we segregate fun to a few minutes a week and feel guilty for our enjoyment.
When our daughter was a very little girl, Lee would play a first person shooter game with our daughter on her lap. It was our daughter’s job to push the shooting button as quickly as possible while Lee aimed. So yes, we are game video game people. When we have problems with the games or some Gamer Questions then instead of de-stressing, we become stressed again. That’s not good, now is it?
