You have been PUBGing your way through the weekend. The morning next, you wake up with a backache, heavy head and fatigue. While some sections make a case for it by saying, it builds analytical skills, improves strategic thinking etc, and gamification has been used as treatments in fields like physiotherapy and occupational therapy too, but the physiological and mental effects of gaming for hours on end are well documented, and we are not even talking about the emerging evidences of association between gaming and violence. Gaming from the couch for prolonged hours are known to cause strings of health problems like constipation, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, computer vision syndrome, obesity and fatigue. How about we offer some serious tips to take care of your physical body and mind for the gamers who invest hours in honing their virtual avatars?


Yoga is a holistic answer to the question that is what can gamers do to take care of their neck, muscles and eyes that are most impacted from gaming too much. Not just addressing the physiological stress, Yoga, when practiced with awareness and attention on the breath, it also helps to calm the mind totally. This is important because the most video games today are VR driven that can wreck the mind, overburdening it with virtual stimuli.

a)Upward facing dog (Urdhvamukha Svanasana) and Downward facing dog (Adhomukha Svanasana)

These stretches help lengthen your spine, circulate blood better and strengthen the limbs. When done with awareness and in alignment with your breath, it can have a very calming effect on your mind.

b) Warrior pose (Virabhadrasana)

This is ideal pose for letting go of the stress in your shoulders and arms. It helps build body balance and stamina while toning the arms, legs and the lower back.

Steps for Warrior Pose

Do not do this pose if you have spine injuries or high blood pressure. If you have a knee issue, you can use the support of a wall.

c) Bridge Pose (Setu Bandhasana)

Relieves tiredness from the back, improves digestion, reduces anxiety and thyroid related issues apart from relaxing your mind.

For Bridge pose, bend both your knees and place the feet on the floor, very close to your hips.

d) Superman Pose (Viparita Shalabhasana)

This is one of the finest stretches for your body when done well. It works up the muscles of the chest, shoulders, arms, lower back and abdomen. It gives a nice massage to your spine and back and aids blood circulation. Here’s how to do it.

e) Child pose or Balasana

This pose releases the stress and tightness from the body, leaving you feeling fresh and energized.

f) Camel pose or Ustrasana

g) Chair pose or Utkatasana

h) Tree pose or Vrikshasana

Here is the secret to hold this pose steadily. In this pose, if you look at one specific point in front of the body, you can easily keep your balance longer.

2.For The Eyes

Here’s what you can do to protect your eyes from damage and developing problems like computer vision syndrome.

3.Yoga Nidra or Guided Yogic Sleep

Having felt the stretch in the abdomen and all other parts of the body, now it is time to rest and let the body cells relax. It is very important that after doing asanas, we either finish the session with a guided meditation of Yoga Nidra (Yogic sleep). Without proper rest after the asanas, you miss out on the most important experience of Yoga which is a deep spiritual rest that your body gets, after having exhausted the Rajas Guna in the body through focused activity.

4. Muscle release oil for the stiff neck

The most common victim of your extended PUBG sessions are your neck and muscles that ache and stiffen up. Once you finish with your Yoga session or for that matter any other work out, it is a good idea to give yourself a full body massage using herbal muscle release oil that seeps into your muscular tissues, lubricating and rejuvenating each muscle fiber in your body.  It also releases the psychosomatic stress stored in your body.  For example, the Shankara Muscle Release Oil, a unique blend of eastern herbal essences and actives from the west like sunflower, almond, sesame, aloe vera, castor, jojoba, sweet birch, lavender, cedarwood, frankincense, devils claw, boswellia among others, is widely being used by those who are into sports, Yoga or some form of workout that works up the muscle tissues of the body.
