VIDEO GAMES
ADDICTION
Video game addiction is an
excessive or compulsive use of
computer
games
or
video
games, which interferes with a
person's everyday life. Video
game addiction may present as
compulsive game playing and
the exclusion of other life events.
Of course, all gamers are not
addicts; many teens can play
video games a few hours a week,
successfully balancing school
activities, grades, friends, and
family obligations.

THE NEGATIVE
EFFECTS OF VIDEO
GAME ADDICTION
Preoccupation: Some notes say that it may be a sign of an
addiction if your child is constantly thinking about his next video
game session, or declining social events with personal interaction
because he's spending time discussing video games on the Internet.

Health Problems: If your child spends all of his free time


playing video games and skips meals or loses sleep because of
excessive game play, a video game addiction can negatively impact
his health.

Poor Performance: Long hours playing video games can


negatively affect your child's performance in school if he's
preoccupied with video games. He can fail to work at his optimum
level because he's exhausted from a late night of video game
playing.

TIPS TO MINIMIZE VIDEO


GAME ADDICTION
Record how much you play a particular game or
games for a week. Not shocked by the number of
hours you have been playing for? If you are a true
video games addict, you could be playing for
upwards of 24 hours a week.

addictive video games ever that should make you
realize all the brilliant other things you could be
doing with your time.

IMPORTANT WAYS TO
DEFEAT THE VIDEO
GAME ADDICTION
An important tip is that once you have read a
step by step guide on how to beat the game,
the fun of discovering new things and finding
what happens next is completely finished.
And once there are no longer any challenges
to a game, it will become boring faster when
you can artificially boost your health.
Another important way is to play with
friends is the best help to minimize video
game addiction, for example, play a Wii
game Michael Jackson The Experience is
a multiplayer platform consisting get
points just for the dance and movement
of the player.

PHYSICAL
CONSEQUENCES OF
GAMING ADDICTION
Migraine headaches is an important physical
consequences typically start in one spot and
slowly spread, getting more painful as they
progress.
In severe cases, the pain can be so extreme that
it causes the sufferer to vomit. Light and noise
can cause excruciating pain. Someone who plays
video games for extended periods of time is
more prone to migraines because of the intense
concentration required and the strain put on the
eyes.
The term sleep disturbances cover several sleep
related
disorders,
including
insomnia,
narcolepsy, sleep apnea, nocturnal myoclonus
periodic leg or arms jerks during sleep, night
terrors, sleepwalking or talking, and nightmares.

ANOTHER
IRREGULARITIES
Eating irregularities are caused by gaming
addiction simply because most addicted
gamers don't want to take the time to eat
properly.
Rather than eating healthy, balanced
meals, they eat food that is quick and
usually unhealthy. In extreme cases, the
gamer may choose not to eat at all.
An addicted gamer is not going to take the
time to properly care for himself. Showers,
face-washing, and brushing hair and teeth
all get put on the back burner. It simply
becomes less of a priority, if it's a priority
at all.

HYGIENE CARELESSLY
These physical consequences will occur
in varying degrees from one gamer to
another. A gamer that is already in
poor physical condition will be more
susceptible to these effects early on.
The video game addict, depending on
their degree of addiction, takes place
the toilet with irregularity because he
does not care personal care, or health
and that he thinks should only eat if
necessary and bathe the slightest as
maximum wash face with a little water.

CONCLUSI
ON
I tell you that the video game addiction is when a
person of any age plays a game for a lot of hours by
any reason. For example Adventure games in this type
of game the player has an obligation to collect money,
gold, find treasures and level the player character
created before.
There are many reasons to start playing at the age of 5
years is not uncommon nowadays is easy to play
online. And ways to prevent and moderate video game
addiction is very simple, but for this there is only one
problem that just needs to know that your child its
having a changing of her normal habits.
