30 Days of Gratitude: Day 19

Do just one thing at a time.

I had a productive morning and found myself ahead on work and school fronts so, I opted to unwind playing some Zelda: Link’s Awakening. Usually, when I play video games, I have a podcast playing or the TV on in the background. This session was “distraction free”; just me sitting on the couch with the Nintendo Switch.

It was nice, concentrating fully on the game. I even had the volume on higher than normal, allowing more of the game music and sound effects to fill the room. I finished the game. Not necessarily because of my “distraction free” gaming session — I was already pretty far into the game — but, the added ability to focus did help me push through the last few final boss battles.
