How Playing Games On Your Smartphones Can Improve Your Productivity

Productivity is important in this idea-powered world, thus you should know about some games that increase this ability.


It is common knowledge that people can improve their productivity by using many apps available on their smartphones. Since productivity is visible most times via output, some limit it to using apps that make tasks easier to achieve and in lesser time as well.


While this is beneficial, it is a narrow view of productivity as regards smartphone applications. Because brain ability plays a major role in how productive a person is, it makes it important for everyone to train their brains to become more powerful.


One sure way to do this is by playing some games tailored to polish the way one thinks or approaches tasks. To get the best out of these games, it is recommended that you play them every day for at least 30 to 45 minutes. Break periods can be used more effectively playing these games while you relax.

How games improve productivity

1. Games that involve solving puzzles or some other kind of problems in innovative ways can build problem-solving skills. Popular games like Sudoku and other crosswords are effective and can be completed in short periods.


2. Strategy games can improve one’s ability to plan and be more proactive. However, since popular ones like Chess, Checkers and Draughts can take longer, you can download games that only require achieving shorter moves. Some even place players in positions and give them problems requiring two or three moves.
