I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.
It’s Tuesday and Tuesday is usually the first day of my stress week…or at least what become the busiest time of the week – filled with various afterschool activities, class work and volunteering, in addition to our day-to-day life and my client work. I don’t know about you, but I often find myself in need of some relaxation by Tuesday or Wednesday night; rather than grab the ice cream or cookies, I tend to do one of two things, pull out the treadmill and run or pull out the video games and get my game on with my Jon.
I need the mental release that these activities give me. For example, when I run I give myself over the feeling in my body – to the peace that follows the rhythmic thumping of my shoes against the tread. When I game, I release by engaging within whatever alternate universe we’re inhabiting that evening – like with reading (another key destressor for me) – I am transported to another world, another life, another mission, one without so much actually riding on my decisions. I know it might seem weird for me to destress by playing an action packed video game, but it really does just relax me. Plus just about anything Jon & I do together is fun, because we have the ability to make each other laugh in those goofy secret ways married people have when they’re still speaking to one another. I’m really terrible at anything (video games included) that have anything to do with aiming or using my joystick in a rapid fashion, so playing with me is always an adventure for Jon…I guess it’s no wonder he won’t ever sign in under his gamer tag when we play…probably doesn’t want me to ruin his rep..
One of Jon’s favorite video game series is Far Cry; he loves the lush settings, varied arsenal offerings, and the first person shooter game play. If you enjoy the first person shooter aspect, great graphics and the ability to zone out in a game you’re in luck!! Far Cry 3 is available TODAY ONLY on Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day! I know!!
