Animal Crossing New Horizons has become my new therapy. I just get lost in it and completely relax. I feel bad when I don’t accomplish anything here in the “real” world, but I’d rather just get lost in my video game than to be faced with the world and unknown stressors that will trigger an explosion.
I am so thankful my love got me my Nintendo Switch and the game for Christmas. What a way to distract myself and use my replacement therapy techniques I have learned. Replace the stressor with something I enjoy.
