That’s why I like to create these monthly wrap-ups. It’s proof and encouragement that it is possible to earn money online. I’m always trying out new ways to increase my income, and this is a good way to look back on every thing that worked and what didn’t. Plus, if I ever feel discouraged, I can take a look back on my accomplishments.

Here is my July 2017 monthly wrap-up, where I talk about life updates, monthly favorites, blog report, and my goals.

Playing video games makes me forget my problems associated with my mental health. They calm my anxiety. They distract me from my depression. You can read more about how they help me here.

I got my first computer when I was 7 or 8. Ever since then, I’ve played The Sims. And even though I’ve played many games in my life, I’ll always consider Sims to be one of my favorite games of all time.

I own The Sims: Complete Collection, every Sims 2 expansion pack and 4 stuff packs, and the first Sims 3 game. I also have all The Sims games for PlayStation 2.

I’m looking to eventually get all the stuff packs from Sims 2 to complete the collection, as well as The Sims 3 and Sims 4 games and the other spin-offs in the future. Even though the first two series will always be my favorites!

As I’ve recently picked back up playing Sims, I found these 4 ways The Sims helps my mental health.
