Thought Experiment

It’s not easy. Finding the right words. How to deal with terrible images and news that may linger in our memory forever. Where do you, I, we stand on the scale between shaking and becoming numb? Is the moral compass still intact? How to support our conscience so it doesn’t lose its way? Many people are looking for ways to protect their mental health and cope with the pressure of our time.

What if a simple and enjoyable activity could help us better handle this? Sounds too good to be true? Science has amazing insights into how the computer game Tetris can help process distressing content and protect mental health.

 

More Than Just Pastime

The idea that a simple game like Tetris could play a significant role in trauma recovery may seem unusual at first glance. However, several studies have explored this and produced astonishing findings.

Research shows that the brain loses its ability to visually recall distressing images during the game. It is suspected that Tetris’ visual-spatial demands disrupt the formation of mental images that trigger flashbacks. This suggests that Tetris can function as a kind of cognitive shield, preventing traumatic memories.

 

Tetris as a Shield for the Soul

If you find yourself overwhelmed by information on social media or news portals, playing Tetris might be a way to reduce distressing memories.

The research results are promising. Who would have thought that a video game could help us protect our mental health?

 

 

I occasionally play Tetris. Would you like to join in?
