Who says work and play do not mix? Even if you are at a job that you love doing, it can get a bit stressful every now and then and this is why you should alleviate such stress by:
- Taking a break from your desk.
- Talking to other colleagues about the ways in which you can deal with stress.
- Taking a vacation and
- By playing online games.
If that last point made you pause for a bit, then read on to find out how you can destress yourself in office by playing online games.
Choose specific games
The immediate and most obvious choice may be an action game that allows you to vent your frustration while you are at work. But this may not work for everybody. Thanks to the wonderfully well—populated world of online games, you can choose from options such as:
- Match 3 and so on.
Most of these games are quick to play.
It is great to get away from the real world and immerse yourself in an online game. Some of those games out there are capable of helping you relax in just a few minutes. It could be something as simple as a Match 3 game or a game that takes you into a fantasy world – it is your choice for sure. If you have a lot of work to do then treat the online game only as a momentary break. Otherwise you will find all that stress come roaring back because you have shaved off precious time from a deadline!
Try a different device
It may be useful (in many ways) to keep different devices for work and play. So if you are using an office PC for all your work, try and play games only on your smartphone. This serves two purposes:
- It helps keep your gaming habit a secret from a boss who may not appreciate it!
- It helps you leave the stressful PC screen and take a break on a separate device too.
Here is the thing though – playing games is not a way to cheat your boss or your responsibility towards your work! It is simply a way in which you clear your head, calm down and get back to being your usual productive self.
Use your breaks
Every office employee gets some break time. During this time, you can, once again, turn to your games to de-stress. The coolest online simulation games are at muchgames.com. It may just be enough time to play a level or two while you are having your coffee but it will work like a charm for sure. You can also create a group of playing members in your office itself. Imagine being able to connect for a few minutes every day with your office colleagues in a world which is anonymous and designation-agnostic.
Finally, you can always try and convince the top brass to install a gaming room in the office. If you can show them how it helps people de-stress, it can be a work productivity tool with a twist.3
