The Heavy Mental Podcast

Game Over: Gaming & Mental Health

Episode Summary

So, we're back for our second series gang! We thought we'd kick things off with something that Rhys and I have talked about A LOT over the past eighteen months or so, and that's GAMING — specifically, what it does to our minds. While we know that there’s dark and light in every situation in this weird life, we personally find that gaming — on the whole (ooo-err) — isn’t great for either of us…and yet, we STILL find ourselves diving back in every couple of months. We’ve recently just resurfaced from the "gaming haze" (as we like to refer to it) and after inspecting both our behaviours while in the midst of it, we’ve learned a fair bit about what it does to our brains...and we'd like to share that with you!
