4 Motivational Tips You Can Learn From Clash Royale Game

4 Motivational Tips You Can Learn From Clash Royale Game

Clash Royale is as a new game that brings the style, theme, and characters of Clash of Clans to a different genre. It is a strategy game where you’ll be using a collectible card game with a single screen approach that moves at a lightning fast pace. Clash Royale as a game has more tips and tricks for any level of player, whether you are a new player, an intermediate player, or an expert player of the game.[1] Oddly enough, I have learned a lot from this game, a lot of which I feel I should share with you. A game is not just for fun, you can actually learn useful tips and lessons from them. In this article, I will explain the beneficial aspect of this game that can serve as a source of motivation for you in an unlikely way.

How to Play the Game

The playing field is divided into two sides, with each team defending their own castle from the opposing player. Both players will also begin with two additional towers that can help to defend their castle should a player fail to muster the needed troops to launch a proper defense. The game is won when one player destroys the castle of the opposing player or when the time runs out. This gives the win to the player who has destroyed the most opposing buildings.

If things remain equal at that time, the clock will be extended for an option called “sudden death” play. If things remain the same after the extended period, then, the match will end in a draw.

Four Ways This Game Provides Motivation To Its Users

It motivates you to stick with your objectives.

One of the lessons I learned from the Clash Royale game is that you have to stick your goals. The game is all about sticking with your deck. In your deck, you will have cards to counter the troops of your opponent. From this, you will learn that your objectives are long-term things to achieve. It takes time to realize your set objectives.

However, the opponents in one’s life are the obstacles or challenges we face in life. You need to stick to your objectives and stay firm in order to make your dream objectives come true.

It motivates you to maximize your opportunities wisely.

In the Clash Royale game, there is a component of the game that is called a “gem”. Gems are hard to get in the game so you can’t just waste them by using them needlessly on random chests. These gems need to be spent wisely.

The motivational lesson from this is that, you should maximize your opportunity. Opportunities in life are hard to come by, therefore, maximize any opportunity that comes your way. As the popular saying goes, opportunity comes but once.

It motivates you to avoid making many mistakes.

What gives an opponent the ability to defeat you in any contest are the mistakes you make. Many people lose games, not because they are bad at them, but because they make many mistakes. This same principle also applies to life. The act of committing a lot of mistakes has caused many people to lose out on their dream. To err is human and we are bound to make mistakes, so give yourself a break the first or second time. Laugh at your mistakes and learn from them – just don’t make a habit out of making mistakes.[2]

It motivates you to be patient.

Everything in life requires patience. Whenever you rush into anything, you will surely rush out. In the Clash Royale game, you have to learn to wait and be patient. This allows you to see the movement of your opponents. If you rush in with your troops, you will surely lose your chance at winning the game.

i learned this lesson day one of playing the game. No matter how big your dream is in life, you need patience in order to achieve it.

Conclusion

Playing games are not just a fun mindless pasttime. Sometimes they come with actual lessons that can be learned from it. As explained above, we can all see that the Clash Royale game has a motivational and inspirational message behind it to move us forward in achieving success in life.

Overcoming The Pain Of A Breakup: 3 Suggestions Based On Science

Overcoming The Pain Of A Breakup: 3 Suggestions Based On Science

We thought that the expression ‘broken heart’ was just a metaphor, but science is telling us that it is not: breakups and rejections do cause physical pain. When a group of psychologists asked research participants to look at images of their ex-partners who broke up with them, researchers found that the same brain areas that are activated by physical pain are also activated by looking at images of ex-partners. Looking at images of our ex is a painful experience, literally.[1].

Given that the effect of rejections and breakups is the same as the effect of physical pain, scientists have speculated on whether the practices that reduce physical pain could be used to reduce the emotional pain that follows from breakups and rejections. In a study on whether painkillers reduce the emotional pain caused by a breakup, researchers found that painkillers did help. Individuals who took painkillers were better able to deal with their breakup. Tamar Cohen wrote that “A simple dose of paracetamol could help ease the pain of a broken heart.”[2]

Just like painkillers can be used to ease the pain of a broken heart, other practices that ease physical pain can also be used to ease the pain of rejections and breakups. Three of these scientifically validated practices are presented in this article.

Looking at images of loved ones

While images of ex-partners stimulate the pain neuro-circuitry in our brain, images of loved ones activate a different circuitry. Looking at images of people who care about us increases the release of oxytocin in our body. Oxytocin, or the “cuddle hormone,” is the hormone that our body relies on to induce in us a soothing feeling of tranquility, even when we are under high stress and pain.

In fact, oxytocin was found to have a crucial role as a mother is giving birth to her baby. Despite the extreme pain that a mother has to endure during delivery, the high level of oxytocin secreted by her body transforms pain into pleasure. Mariem Melainine notes that, “Oxytocin levels are usually at their peak during delivery, which promotes a sense of euphoria in the mother and helps her develop a stronger bond with her baby.”[3]

Whenever you feel tempted to look at images of your ex-partner, log into your Facebook page and start browsing images of your loved ones. As Eva Ritvo, M.D. notes, “Facebook fools our brain into believing that loved ones surround us, which historically was essential to our survival. The human brain, because it evolved thousands of years before photography, fails on many levels to recognize the difference between pictures and people”[4]

Exercise

Endorphins are neurotransmitters that reduce our perception of pain. When our body is high on endorphins, painful sensations are kept outside of conscious awareness. It was found that exercise causes endorphins to be secreted in the brain and as a result produce a feeling of power, as psychologist Alex Korb noted in his book: “Exercise causes your brain to release endorphins, neurotransmitters that act on your neurons like opiates (such as morphine or Vicodin) by sending a neural signal to reduce pain and provide anxiety relief.”[5] By inhibiting pain from being transmitted to our brain, exercise acts as a powerful antidote to the pain caused by rejections and breakups.

Meditation

Jon Kabat Zinn, a doctor who pioneered the use of mindfulness meditation therapy for patients with chronic pain, has argued that it is not pain itself that is harmful to our mental health, rather, it is the way we react to pain. When we react to pain with irritation, frustration, and self-pity, more pain is generated, and we enter a never ending spiral of painful thoughts and sensations.

In order to disrupt the domino effect caused by reacting to pain with pain, Kabat Zinn and other proponents of mindfulness meditation therapy have suggested reacting to pain through nonjudgmental contemplation and acceptance. By practicing meditation on a daily basis and getting used to the habit of paying attention to the sensations generated by our body (including the painful ones and by observing these sensations nonjudgmentally and with compassion) our brain develops the habit of reacting to pain with grace and patience.

When you find yourself thinking about a recent breakup or a recent rejection, close your eyes and pay attention to the sensations produced by your body. Take deep breaths and as you are feeling the sensations produced by your body, distance yourself from them, and observe them without judgment and with compassion. If your brain starts wandering and gets distracted, gently bring back your compassionate nonjudgmental attention to your body. Try to do this exercise for one minute and gradually increase its duration.

With consistent practice, nonjudgmental acceptance will become our default reaction to breakups, rejections, and other disappointments that we experience in life. Every rejection and every breakup teaches us great lessons about relationships and about ourselves.
