Here we are going to talk about the sworn enemy of self-care; self-sabotage. It isn’t that easy to see what is getting us down, preventing us from reaching goals, or even preventing the desire to achieve. We all have areas of our life that are 80% good most of the time. For instance, some of us are comfortable with our work and friendships but don’t really have a dating life. For others, we are really good with friendships and relationships but are afraid to make big moves to start our own business. Self-Sabotage is universal, because everyone has areas of their life they prevent themselves from improving.
Playing video games for the first time? Trying to get someone else into them? If you own a PlayStation, then this is a guide that breaks down some of my favorite games for beginners. Beginners may not like combat, so I include a section of non-combat games they can try. You may also not like playing kids games, so I include some games that are good for all ages. Some games are multiplayer in-person games, but others are only multiplayer online, or not multiplayer at all. This should help you get started, and I've linked each of these games to their trailers for you.
Porcupines hide in trees - did you know that? Look up. Go into the woods near your apartment, and wander. The first time I discovered this I was hiking in the winter. I looked up and thought I saw a great bird's nest. Nope - that scruffiness was a big ol’ porcupine. They are rarely in a tree, but you may catch them in the act of looking for food or just hanging out in a nest they made.

A Link to the Past: Original Hyrule Castle Theme
A Link to the past brings us the original Hyrule castle theme. I know this isn’t a boss fight but the fact is it builds up to each of the Ganondorf boss fights following this game because it is part of Zelda history. Entering Hyrule Castle signifies approaching the final boss: Ganondorf himself. It builds the anticipation as you eagerly anticipate one of the hardest fights of the Zelda franchise. It also means the end of the game is near, after all you have worked for.
You may have died so many times you think you suck at this game. You may also be mistaken. Every video game, much like every skill in life, takes quite a lot of practice to get good. More than that, you may have been missing out on having the basic skills down. The firing range will always be there for practicing how to shoot. This is especially true if you know how to turn the dummies into live shooters, making target practice much more realistic. Chances are, you have played so many games you have good aim but low confidence. Not only that but it is time to revisit the basics.
