Pausing video games for 1 month

Yesterday, I played Battlefield 1 late at night and while I was playing something occurred to me. I play video games pretty often and for a good while now, I’ve been addicted to playing BF1 and haven’t really played anything else. The game’s mechanics, maps, and overall gameplay has kept me engaged pretty well, so well that I have it on both my PS4 and Xbox just so I can play on one if the other is updating.

I play most on the weekends but I have had a feeling that recently, the time I’m spending playing video games is too much of a waste and not so much relaxation or “getting my mind off other things”.

It has become its own problem altogether and I’m going to stop playing them starting today until at least January 17th, 2020.
