Sometimes learning a new skill can seem like a daunting task. I remember when I was in school, the things I learnt quickly, were the things which were presented in a fun manner. To this day I am amazed at the song lyrics I remember from more than twenty-five years ago which were performed at a school function. Yet I am at a loss to remember certain math equations. When new information is acquired in a fun manner, the results last longer.
I never played much card or board games when growing up and now realize just how beneficial they could have been. Certain games like chess, domino and poker help you develop critical thinking. Others help you increase you vocabulary, learn more about a particular topic such as real estate, investing or being an entrepreneur.
Games are a great learning tool because they inform while they entertain. They allow individuals with like minds to come together and have fun as they increase their skills. Games that families can play together and which can be used by parents as a tool to aid their children and young adults acquire useful life skills are a plus.
Telling some one to think before they act, my not get through but teach them chess or some other game which requires thought before action and that skill will most likely translate to other areas of their life. Some one who does not like math suddenly realizes how important it is when taught a game in which buying, selling and making a profit is important. Let us not forget how playing word games help build vocabulary, and confidence.
Some of the best games I ever played, reprogrammed my thinking to look for the opportunities life constantly offered. As with most things, doing them once had little effect but playing them often changed my thinking. I began to realize I was developing new skills which were translating to other areas of my life.
Consider adding a game night to your life because learning can be fun!
