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.

Book Review: Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot

Book Review: Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot

CONTENT WARNING: This post mentions eating disorders, self-harm, and suicide.

This is a spoiler-free review.

For my second book review on my blog, I wanted to read Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot. I read so many mixed reviews about, but I wanted to give it a shot. I wanted to form my own opinion based on the content and the portrayal of mental illness.

Sad Perfect is a moving story about Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder. It’s informative, yet relatable. It’s heartbreaking, yet hopeful.

I do want to make a trigger warning before continuing with my review. I imagine this book can be incredibly triggering for those struggling with an eating disorder, especially ARFID. There were very descriptive passages of self-harm that triggered me greatly. I had to ground myself before reading on.

So to start my review, I say read this book at your own discretion. If you want to gain insight on less known mental illnesses, please read on.
