The Art of Gaming Intellectually

Gaming is Life (Except when it isn’t)

What do you do when you’re not gaming?

Sometimes, the answer is that we are doing things that we ultimately need to do to provide time and money for our hobby. Working, school, chores, etc. Sometimes, we have other hobbies that enrich us in other ways. For instance, I enjoy playing guitar and music in general. It’s often hard enough to find time to sit down for a decent gaming session, let alone a gaming session and time alone with an instrument. We have to work, then workout, then we want spend time with loved ones, then have time to do the things that fulfill us personally. Unfortunately, I find my days falling exactly in that order and by the time I have a moment to myself, I’m too tired to do anything about it.

That’s a lot to keep up with. I’ve been visiting a blog called zenhabits which details the habits and behaviors that may prevent us from doing the things we enjoy. Although the author lists gaming as a “bad habit,” I think the tips he gives for cutting out the unnecessary and the negative can help give us more time to focus on whatever we enjoy doing.

So, is gaming something you do out of boredom or is it an activity you actively try to make time for? And how do you do that?

  1. What the actual fuck? Please. I’ve turned drinking and being rude/angry/depressed into a full-contact art form. Also: I didn’t ask for your life story.
