How Online games can help in good mental health?

According to the 2020 research by Oxford University, they found that playing online games may improve your mental health and make you happier in life, and fade away tension and depression from life.

Mental Health is the state of well-being, in which an individual can realize his/her abilities and can perform them to the best of their capabilities.

Online video games are a space where a depressed, stressed, anxious, or lonely individual finds recreation and has time to socialize with the other team members.

Online games give individuals a sense of belonging that they are a part of a community and other people appreciate their participation in the game. This helps in building confidence in the individuals.

Apart from these, online games can also boost mood, give a pleasure of winning, build leadership, etc.

Nowadays, playing online games is no less than therapy for good mental health. If an individual cannot afford expensive therapies and medications, playing online games can be an excellent alternative for them sometimes.

Recently, I have been also feeling a little stressed in life because of huge loads of work, and I felt it has affected the peace of my mind and I realized I am getting little or no recreation in life nowadays.

So I thought playing some games on the internet could be a decent option for me as well as for my mental health, so I browsed through the internet and came to know about this interesting online gaming website, where I had time to refresh myself by playing some interesting and mind-blowing games.

Top 3 Games Which I Loved The Most

Solitaire Game

In this game, the participant has to arrange the cards in the sequence that is from ace, 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, jack, queen, king.

Hidden Object Game 

This game is one of the best games I have ever played in my entire life. If you want to test your concentration power and even increase it, I would highly recommend you to play this game.

In this game the participant will be presented a picture with some objects or maybe numbers, etc hidden in the image, the participant has to find those hidden objects.

There are a total of 10 levels in this game, at each level, there will be a timer, if you pass all the 10 levels in the specified time period, you won.

This game is very interesting, and it can really help you in increasing your focus.

Logic Puzzle Game

Logic Puzzle Game is yet another exciting game I loved playing on this website, the other name I would give this game is a mental exercise.

In this game, the participant has to make a letter by the numbers given on the screen and solve the puzzle by taking as little time as possible. I loved playing this game.


I never thought that this is going to be my stress buster, but playing online games on has been a mood booster and refreshing for me. Lately I was feeling so stressed and now I feel recharged again. The stress I had in my mind is all gone and I feel refreshed and energized.

I think it’s better sometimes we all should take some rest and play some games. It’s good for our mental health and it also gives us all a chance to spend quality time with our family too.
