5 Reasons why Mobile Gaming is ideal for a Busy Lifestyle

Rugby Editorial 19th Jul, 2022   0

Life is almost always busy! Modern life is hectic, especially if you’re always hustling and have more than one job or hobby. We have either work or university to attend, and then possibly homework or extra work after hours. Your job might require you to work longer hours than a regular 9-5, it might require you to be out and about running errands or even doing physical labour, which can really tire a person out. You’ve got to get to the gym or go for a run, you might have a family to drive around and feed, or maybe you have lots of papers to grade that will keep you busy for hours. Finding time to relax, however you prefer to relax, can be difficult. Whether you relax by closing the door and having a little nap, whether you play mobile roulette for a half-hour after work to de-stress or whether you like to do yoga in the park, relaxation and fun time are essential for a balanced life.

You need something fun to fit your schedule. We have the perfect solution for you: mobile gaming. It’s the perfect hobby for someone who needs to make a little time to chill. Let’s find out why mobile gaming might be your ideal hobby.

It’s an any-time hobby

Luckily, mobile gaming is an on-the-go, wherever you find yourself hobby. Unlike PC or console gaming, you don’t need a huge setup, a desk and a chair to play mobile games. All you need is a mobile phone that fits right into your pocket, handbag, or backpack! You can jump into your game whenever you have a few free seconds. A perfect way to maximise your time usage on a commute (as long as you aren’t driving yourself!) is to get a few minutes of chill time in. As long as you have a connection to the internet, you’re ready to go! You could get a round in on your afternoon work break or maybe even in between classes if you have the time.

Games are good for socialising

If you are a very busy person, you likely don’t have much free time on your hands for socialising. Gaming can be a way to have a hobby and socialise at the same time. If you play team sports, you’ll be able to spend time with your friends online, in the game world, while also getting all the other benefits that mobile gaming offers you.

Mobile games train your brain

The great thing about training your brain with games is that you’re having fun and don’t feel like you’re putting in any “real work,” but the training is happening anyway. Mobile gaming, along with all other types of gaming, is an excellent way to train your brain and improve specific skills without you even realising it. For example, playing team games will automatically strengthen your delegation and teamwork skills, which can help in various aspects of your life. It might make it easier to work in a team with that one person at your job you don’t like so much. Gaming can also help with your spatial awareness skills. Let’s say you need to stay alive through a very intense battle, and there are soldiers all around you: you have to be aware of how far away they all are so that they can’t reach you with their swords or spears. This can help a lot if you are studying art or are in a job where you need to be aware of the three dimensions around you at all times. Playing games can also help improve your attention span, even if you have what you feel is a naturally short attention span.

Games are a mood booster

Games are a lot of FUN; it’s simple! Having fun is the best way to boost your mood, and being in a good mood makes everything about life a little easier and more enjoyable.

Mobile gaming is affordable

This is a plus for anyone with any kind of lifestyle, but especially if you lead a hectic life. This is by far the most affordable form of gaming. Both PC and console gaming require big setups that take up a lot of space and often cost a lot of money. If you don’t have lots of time on your hands, it feels a bit wasteful to spend that much money on a setup you hardly ever use. All you need for mobile gaming is the phone in your back pocket!

Wrap Up

Mobile gaming is an excellent hobby, and it’s perfect for you to try if you like the idea of gaming but don’t want to commit to something that will take up too much time and money.
