Should Students Play More Video Games To Overcome Stress And Isolation?

British students are currently struggling to cope with loneliness, as a survey has revealed that one in six students say that they have no real friends among their peers. Moreover, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused young people to grow increasingly isolated as global lockdowns have been put in place to enforce social distancing rules. Social isolation can cause a host of health issues that include chronic stress, anxiety, and depression, and it may even increase the risks of developing cardiac disease. Taking some time to de-stress and communicating with loved ones can help young adults to cope, but studies have shown that playing video games can also help one to overcome negative emotions brought about by isolation. When done in moderation, playing video games not only enhances one’s real-life skills but it may also contribute to improved mental health and happiness.
