On today’s episode we talk about how to quit playing video games in 60 seconds. Hey, what’s up guys. Cam here, and today I’m coming at you from Moab in Utah. Here’s how to quit playing video games in under 60 seconds. There are five different steps you need to take. First, you need to understand why you play games. And there are four reasons. First, they give you a temporary escape. They help you deal with stress and they help you get away from your situation, whatever that is. Next, they’re social. They’re your sense of community, they’re how you hung out with your friends, and how you meet other like-minded people. Third, you see constant measurable growth. This is a feedback loop. This is all about instant gratification, and you get to see your progress. Finally, they’re a challenge. They give you a sense of purpose, a mission, and a goal to work towards. So now that you know why you play, you need to find those needs in other activities. You need to find new activities to give you an escape, help you make friends, give you a sense of progress and to give you a sense of purpose. Next, you wanna plan ahead. Make sure you follow a schedule, have a daily agenda. This will help you not sit around and feel bored all day long, which is when you’re gonna wanna play games. Next, you wanna distance yourself from games. Don’t follow gaming news, unsubscribe from streams, and find new ways to interact with your gamer friends. Finally, make sure you join a support community. That could be to StopGaming subreddit or the GameQuitters forum. Finding other like-minded people going through the same journey as you is really important if you wanna quit. So I hope that helps you guys out and if you’re looking for more information on this, that dives a lot deeper into each of these concepts, make sure you grab a copy of my guide called “Respawn”. Respawn will teach you a lot of different stuff but one thing that it will teach you is three different types of activities you need to replace gaming with and other important steps to take to avoid a relapse. Thanks for watching, I’ll talk to you guys soon. Peace!
