September was a pretty good month for me both personally and for my blog. My blog stats are up, and I’m constantly researching ways to increase my traffic and income. It feels so good that all my hard work and dedication is finally showing proof.

I also celebrated my 4 year anniversary with my boyfriend by taking a week-long trip to Tennessee. We went to Dollywood (one of my favorite theme parks ever), ate vegan food, and played old-school Sega. Plus, I had a week off work, which I can’t complain about.

I’ve grown so much from in the past few months. I’m excited to share my September Blog Report: Traffic, Income, & Monthly Favorites:

For some reason there is still a huge misconception that video games are bad for you. They make you violent. You’re irresponsible and lazy if you play them. For me, that is the complete opposite.

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.
