As reported by GIGAOM, games have proven to reduce stress from a variety of moods type such as anger and depression. The results of the study are overwhelmingly positive which is why giving gaming a try in order to reduce your stress levels is a great idea.
Stress relief at your convenience
The reason why specifically mobile gaming is a great idea for stress relief is due to the fact that you can get out your mobile phone anywhere you like and be playing a game within moments. So if you have a short break at work, or are waiting on the train then it is an ideal time to play a game.
In addition, most mobile games have very short load times, and use the type of gaming format where you can play for 5 to 10 minutes, accomplish something and then save your progress. With most games you won't have to play for 30 minutes or so in order to get a sense of accomplishment.
Don't worry about looking childish
Are you curious about opting for mobile gaming as a way to relieve your stress, but are hesitant because you feel like it is an activity mostly for kids and it could be too 'childish' to play games on your phone? This concern is somewhat understandable, but gaming is not seen as something that is 'just for kids'. Companies like Google are using games as a way for their employees to get brain stimulation and therefore increase productivity.
You will notice that a lot of the games for consoles such as Modern Warfare and Grand Theft Auto are not aimed for kids at all. They are some of the most successful franchises out there and are in fact aimed at the adult market. This goes to show that gaming is an activity for adults as much as it is for kids.
One of the more popular Nintendo DS Games is Brain Training, which is marketed as a game that can boost the ability of your brain. While the claim is yet to be verified, people are buying this game primarily because it is fun. And that is the main attraction of mobile gaming; it is fun and can achieve other objectives at the same time such as 'kill time', increase brain productivity, increase your creativity levels and reduce your stress levels.
In addition to stress you can alleviate boredom
Being bored is not fun, right? Wouldn't you rather be playing the latest football game against your friend than simply letting the time pass by when you are waiting on a train or queuing up at the bank? Mobile games are a convenient way to get rid of the boring periods of your day because you always have your mobile phone with you anyway. Just download a few gameson your phone for when you enter a 'boring' period of your day. Then give the games a try and you will see that the time will fly by.
Why good quality gamepads are important for successful stress relief
When mobile phones are designed the designer gives more attention to the convenience of using it as a mobile phone rather than a gaming device. For this reason there are mobiles out there which are very difficult to play games on because it is just too uncomfortable. Therefore, gamepads exist such as the ones found on the Sony Xperia that allow for smooth gameplay. However, it's a rather expensive and not very discreet solution. There is a cool new alternative that is about to hit the market called the Invisible Gamepad developed by Kickstarter. This innovative product is basically a set of differently sized and shaped stickers that act as the input devices. They can be left on the mobile for as long as you want, and will not get in the way of the normal operation of the phone.
While this innovation is somewhat unusual it does offer some advantages such as its relatively cheap price and compact nature. One great attraction is that it will not add to the bulkiness of your mobile phone, you will be able to fit it in your pocket just like before.
By opting for such a convenient and cheap gamepad that is compatible with any phone out there you will be sure to have the kind of gaming experience that will not leave you frustrated due to poor quality controls, and you will be able to have an enjoyable experience that will go a long way towards reducing your stress levels.
You won't know until you try
Are you still skeptical about the fact that mobile gaming will reduce your stress levels? Then you need to simply give the games a chance and see for yourself what all the fuss is about. Like most people nowadays you probably have a smartphone that is connected to the internet. And therefore you have access to hundreds of games at your fingertips. Try downloading a few of them, and play them in your downtime after a stressful day at work. I'm willing to bet that you will feel much more relaxed as you slowly begin to forget about your stressful day.
