Ironically, there are a few online games that can cause a lot of stress to the gamers. For the most part, these stressful online games are social. Having that said, these games include the stress and complexities of social situations.

With these online games, gamers may forbid other online gamers from participating in some events. In addition, online gamers can make others as their targets for attacks. For the most part, an online game is a game of power struggle, and gamers will mostly feel frustrated whenever they are on the losing end.

In addition to this, some online games, such as Battlefield 3, DOTA 2 and Warcraft 3, may require a ton of hours from the gamer. What’s more, these games may involve perplexing stages that can annoy and inflict stress to you, as a gamer.

Fortunately, we have come up with ways to make these games less stressful and more enjoyable. Without further adieu, here are the 7 Zen-like practices you can do when playing online games:

1. Switch to games that are fun and less competitive

Avid online gamers usually prefer to play online multiplayer (CS: GO, TF2 and CoD) and MOBA (Lol, DOTA 2) games. However, there are times when you are not in the mood or the competitive aspect of these online games is too much for your standards. Also, you might be sick of dealing with the attitude of the other players of these games.

In these instances, you should to retreat to games that work as a stress reliever, such as Katamari Damacy, Little Big Planet or OpenTTD. Trust me, these games can lighten you up, and can make you more relaxed and focused, as you move on to playing the more competitive games.

2. Keep your PC in optimum condition

The last thing you want to do, when playing online games, is to troubleshoot your faulty computer system. Hence, before playing online games, do a thorough checkup of your computer, and make the necessary adjustments.

3. Look for gift codes for your game

If you are stuck in a particular level in your game, and you cannot find solutions to the problem, look for gift codes that you can use for your game. Apparently, gift codes may help you upgrade your account to premium service. Likewise, these codes may contain features and bonuses that may bolster your character’s performance in the game.

Getting a gift code for Minecraft, for instance, will help you get better patches, new gears as well as unlocked new levels. Well, that’s a great Zen-like practice that you can do as you play your online games.

4. Spend wisely

There are online games that involve betting, such as Texas Holdem and other gambling games. As you play these games, do not play with cash that you could not afford to lose. Keep in mind that gambling is rather risky, and these games do not guarantee that will recover the lost money.

5. Spend a few hours away from the computer

Spending hours in front of your computer can be distressing and stressful. Not to mention, it can lead to sleep disorders. Having all said, take some time away from your online game, and get a relaxing massage, bath or anything that can make you feel relaxed.

6. Interactive games

Exercise can help you relieve stress. As you exercise, you are releasing endorphin that provide a positive feel in your body. More importantly, these chemicals help reduce stress.

If you are an avid online gamer who thinks working out is boring, make your exercises more lively and fun by playing interactive games through a Wii console. If you do not have a Wii console, download a Wii emulator, so you can play these games on your computer.

These Zen-like practices will definitely help you feel relaxed and composed when playing online games. Follow these tips, and you will get a more productive and healthier life even when you are an online gaming addict.
