Day 8 – Can life’s problems be solved by Candy Crush?

candy crushHow many of you play Candy Crush? Come on, you can admit it. 93 million people play it daily around the world, so that means you and I are both playing it. It generates $800,00 in revenue every day.

You don’t have to say you have it on your iPhone because your kids like to play it. You can admit it. We’re all friends here. And it is okay. Candy Crush is good for you and I will explain why.

Now I know you may be asking me how this is possible, but it is true. Maybe not when you are procrastinating and not achieving what you should do because you have to just get through one more level. Or when you are timing everything you do in your day based on the 20 minutes until you get your next life in the game (for those of you who don’t play, stop reading now, you might be better off not worrying about getting a life in 20 minutes).

But I have found one really good use for Candy Crush. You know those days when you really really want to send out an email or make a phone call that you know you would be better off not doing. Well then take a Candy Crush break. Kind of like the 5 second rule when you drop something on the ground. Or the “don’t send out the email until the next morning rule”.

Because chances are, after figuring out how to make those candy rows work and those candy bombs go off, you will be so full of joy and happiness that you will have forgotten what your angry moment was about.

So I’m prescribing a Candy Crush Moment. Breathe and play.
