In today’s topic I have chosen a taught on. Is Gaming Healthy? – what are and are not the healthy benefits to gaming? So let us take a deeper look into this topic, and see whether gaming is healthy or not.
Hands are unique because of having thumbs. But it is the way we use them that sets us apart. So in the gaming world what is the health benefits. One benefit is eye hand coordination. If you are lacking in eye hand coordination this is the way to help improve that over all.
As for exercising, your figures are constantly moving. There are many buttons on a controller that you must use together, separately, or multi times. The downside to this is that after a while your hands become cramped, stiff and sore. This can lead to Carpal tunnel or tendinitis in the wrist.
Yes the eyes are a sensitive and delicate part of our body. In gaming our eyes must see all the surrounding area of the game. Your eyes are constantly moving giving them plenty of exercise. The down fall to this is after a long period of gaming your eyes get tired leading to eye strain.
The Wii system was created to get people up and moving while playing games. So in a sense for those who play Wii yes they are up on their legs and active. But for those with other systems I am sorry to say there is no good health benefit to this. Sitting for long periods of time can lead to many other health problems.
When playing a game whether people wish to admit it or not our bodies do move, especially when you’re playing a highly intensive game. But is it enough to be a health benefit. That would depend on if your an intense player or not. But as for the rest of us who are not intense players their is no health benefits.
The mind is a curious thing indeed, but as like within life the games we play will always be a health benefit. You see no matter where we go or what we do we are always using are minds. In gaming, we need to use our quick thinking skills, strategy skill, and always be on the look out for danger. As long as we can keep our minds active, then it will always be a healthy activity
