The Healthy Approach to Gaming
Have you ever imagined being able to game whenever you want?
What if we told you that gaming never had to cause you any problems again? Would you believe us? If you answered ‘no’, we wouldn’t blame you. However, we are here to show you that it is possible to Gamewell.
Gaming does not need to have a negative effect on your life. In fact, gaming can actually improve your life. If you are a gamer, you know how many benefits it has. It can improve cognition, teamwork skills, and is also a great way to spend time with friends.
However, you might also know that there is a dark side to gaming. Some people let it get in the way of their schoolwork, their household chores, and some retreat into it completely to forget about the real world. If you are experiencing these downsides to gaming, we want to help you.
We’re not going to tell you to stop gaming. In fact, quite the opposite; we want you to game. By completing our course, you will not only know how to perfectly balance gaming with the rest of your life, but also how to negotiate with your parents about it, and we even include some tips on how to become a pro gamer!
Our course was designed by leading pro gaming psychologists with you in mind. Join us, and learn how to be the best gamer you can be!
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then this course is for you. Through us, you’ll understand why gaming might be a problem, how to solve that problem, how you can negotiate with your parents or carers about gaming, and how you can increase your chances of going pro.
