Though video games have earned a largely negative reputation thanks to their depiction of violent acts and addictiveness, many are actually helpful rather than hurtful when it comes to mental health. In fact, one 2017 study published in Human Factors found that people who played casual video games to destress during the workday felt better than those who just sat silently.
So, which video games are best when it comes to relaxing and unwinding? We’ve rounded up five calming video games to play when you need a calming escape.

TSA’s “Travel With Ease” campaign promotes safe distancing at airport checkpoints.
WASHINGTON, D.C., USA — The Transportation Security Administration launched a new “Travel With Ease” campaign to encourage air travelers to enroll in the TSA PreCheck program if they plan to travel over the upcoming holidays.
The campaign points out why TSA PreCheck benefits may be more helpful than ever as travelers experience convenience and less physical contact.
“TSA has made considerable changes to its checkpoint processes to make commercial air travel more safe and secure for everyone during the pandemic,” said TSA Administrator David Pekoske in a media release aboout the new campaign. “Obtaining TSA PreCheck is something that each traveler can do to make the checkpoint experience even more efficient, eliminating several contact points, which in most cases, includes the need for a bin.”
TSA PreCheck allows an approved passenger to pass through checkpoints wearing shoes, belts and

U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman was in plain sight when he held up a weapon Monday morning at the Omni Louisville Hotel.
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is one of the most damaging, one of the most threatening and dangerous items in your home,” Coleman said, with a smartphone in his hand. “This is the means by which doors are open to the world to come into our home.”
Coleman was joined by Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron and a number of other law enforcement officials to announce seven arrests had been made as part of Operation Gabbi Doolin, an effort to target child predators in the commonwealth. Four of the men arrested live in Louisville, but Coleman stressed this is an issue that plagues the whole state — suspects from Adolphus, Elizabethtown and Rineyville
KALAMAZOO, MI — Students at Western Michigan, who will now pivot to online learning a few days earlier than they planned, are hopeful they will be able to return to campus in January.
On Monday, Nov. 16, as a line of cars grew at a drive-thru COVID-19 testing site set up on campus, students prepared to leave campus. Their departure is a few days earlier than expected, after a public health order announced by state officials Sunday canceled all in-person learning for colleges for a three-week period, amid rising coronavirus cases.
Griffin Reifsteck, a freshman at WMU, said he struggles more with virtual classes and prefers in-person learning.
“It does make it a bit harder, but it is what it is,” Reifsteck said. “We have to do what we need to do to keep safe.”
The state’s order, which takes effect Wednesday, will only affect three days of classes for
It’s late at night and you’re coming down with something: itchy throat, watery eyes, pounding head, aching stomach. Do you push through the pain until morning, when you can see your primary care physician, or rush to the emergency room where you? And in times of crisis like the , do you risk contagion by sitting in a waiting room to see your nurse practitioner or doctor for an in-person medical care appointment?
In either scenario — or any other situation where you might not want to or can’t travel to a doctor’s office — you can pick up your phone and, in a matter of a few taps, explain your symptoms to an online doctor who can immediately advise you on the best course
If you’ve ever stayed at a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, you’ve no doubt been welcomed with one of their signature chocolate chip cookies. Served warm upon check-in, the cookie is consumed by more than 30 million guests every year and was even the first food to be baked in orbit during experiments aboard the International Space Station!
But now, you no longer have to go on vacation (or to space!) to get your hands on the sweet treat, because for the first time, the hotel chain is sharing their official bake-at-home recipe so you can create the comforting cookie in your own kitchen.
While copycat recipes have been published online for years, this is the only official version directly from Hilton. Because it is from scratch, you will need your standard baking staples, like butter, sugar, eggs, flour and baking soda. You’ll also need rolled oats, cinnamon, chocolate chips and
As opposed to a regular savings account, a high-yield savings account features a higher interest rate and generates more returns. In some recent instances, the interest rates of high-yield savings accounts can be up to 25 times higher than the national average for standard savings accounts.
What You Should Know:
- The main difference between traditional savings accounts and high-yield savings accounts is that the latter will allow you to earn much more interest. If you’re planning on setting money aside for long-term financial goals, a high-yield savings account will help you get there faster with better returns.
- While an annual percentage rate (APR) takes into account how much your savings account will earn during the year, it doesn’t take into account compound interest, which is any interest you’ll earn on your accrued interest. An Annual percentage yield (APY), on the other hand, gives you
