Over the past month, I have dicovered multiple ways that Kiect has helped me with my daily life. It has been quite exhilarating to be able to get so much physical activity, and stimming, while gaming. I have been discovering new games through the help of my friends.
I would like to share a few of my ongoing concerns, and how Kinect has helped me with those concerns.
Solution: Finding games that use motion, and can help maintain muscle and joint health, especially if I am unable to leave my home.
Kinect game example: Just Dance 3 & 4
Solution: Create an activity in which I can use my arms at different intensities and levels, in a fun, interactive way.
Kinect game example: Disneyland Adventures
Solution: Playing a game both friends can engage in, taking pressure off conversation, and creating a engaging, positive environment. Social activities that are physically active can be a great release of energy/anxiety/frustration.
Kinect game example: Happy Action Theater
There are activities, out there, for each individual, regardless of likes, dislikes, needs, wants, limitations.
Sometimes it's full-body video gaming. . .sometimes it's jumping on the bed with a friend. . . sometimes it's touching sand at the beach.
I am glad that I have another activity to allow me to feel more engaged in life, and overall happier.
I would love to hear what activity, or activities, create happiness in your life!
