Finding Balance in Life and Gaming

As a 41-year-old man dealing with ICD 11 gaming disorder, I have found myself struggling to find a balance between my love for gaming and my overall well-being. It’s been a challenging road, but I have come to realize that moderation is key. I’ve started setting limits for gaming and incorporating other activities into my daily routine. Whether it’s exercise, spending time with loved ones, or pursuing new hobbies, finding a healthy balance has made a significant difference in my mental health. I’ve also sought support from friends and professional counseling, which has been immensely helpful. While it’s an ongoing process, I am determined to prioritize my mental health and find joy in all aspects of life. If anyone else is going through a similar experience, know that you’re not alone, and there are ways to navigate through this challenge and find a sense of balance and well-being.
