When you’re trying to get writing done and you need a break, the best thing to do during your break is play a mindless game on your phone. Here’s why.
-If you read a book or watch a movie instead, you will start to see your breaks as end goals instead of seeing the end of your story as an end goal. You will become so desperate to read that you will think only about the book you could be reading during the times you should be writing. At least that’s what happened with me. Since mindless phone aren’t very engaging and don’t offer grand stories, they avoid that problem.
-If you play on Tumblr instead, you will end up wanting to update your dashboard “just one more time” instead of going back to writing. Since most mindless phone games don’t constantly update and get boring after a few minutes, the smartphone is once again a better choice.
-If you do other work instead, you aren’t really giving your brain a break and you will burn out. Mindless phone games are relaxing.
My personal recommendations: Any Flappy Bird clone, Spikes, Geometry Dash, Unroll Me, and Bitcoin Billionaire.
