It's easy to go through the day and forget to pause to realize what we're thinking. Video games have been part of the mainstream for more than thirty years, ever since Nintendo and SEGA revitalized a dying industry in the 1980s. However, despite polarized headlines and concerns about gaming addiction, there has also been a lot of research that shows that, if used wisely, video games become an excellent tool for reducing stress and improving cognitive ability. Specifically when you're a teenager, it can sometimes be difficult to implement daily self-care, especially with all the stressors that teens have in their daily lives.
Adolescents have also been heavily affected in recent times, and the rates of anxiety and depression among adolescents continue to rise, making personal care for adolescents and adults alike a priority.
