We have been living in a pandemic for a very, very long time. Never in my life could I have imagined such a world. Never seeing smiles, not hugging people, all of these things have had a massive impact on people in general. I remember the first time I wrote about the pandemic, I wondered how long it would even be relevant for. I thought that in a few years, it wouldn’t be something on our minds anymore. Boy was I wrong!!
I’m not sure if you guys remember but several months ago I wrote about some online games I was loving. 9 Online Games I’m Loving
Now it’s November 20, 2021 and this is still life. We still hear the case count every single day. The vaccine didn’t end it. Not yet anyway. Sometimes living in this version of the world gets heavy. There is so much very serious stuff going on. Between climate change, natural disasters, racism and more, is there even time for happiness anymore?
The effects of the pandemic I now understand are much bigger than this. Between the economical factors, mental health, physical health, social networks and more, the effects feel never-ending.
Some symptoms to pay attention to are:
anything out of the ordinary
changes in sleep pattern
changes in appetite
feelings of anxiety, irritation, etc
unexplained physical problems
What can you do?
Talk to your doctor
Work on stress management skills
Reach out to loved ones
Plan happy plans so you have something to look forward to
Listen to your body
Do things you actively enjoy

There are A LOT of games.
It’s fun and fun is good!!
Benefits of having fun :
Better ability to cope with life and unsatisfactory things
Klondike Solitaire is basically the standard version of the game we all know and love. There is an option at the beginning for an easy or normal game mode. A few things I noticed while playing was it has a clear time display, and an easy to see score board.
Hidden Kitchen is super fun. I loved this one and will definitely be playing more of it. This game had very clear instructions. It also had an easy to read time, score and level board. This game basically had a busy kitchen setting with a lot of stuff out and then you try to find specific things. Theres also hidden castle, hidden garden and hidden pirate.
