"很多职场人士都会在办公室里玩视频游戏,因为要长时间做项目,因此在工作时间更容易适应几分钟玩游戏。"

Many employees are taking their video game hobby to the office, as longer hours and project-based work make it easier to fit in a few minutes of play during the work day.

"心理学家和游戏玩家都认为,玩游戏并不仅仅是为了娱乐。很多人使用游戏来放松工作日的压力,应付无聊的任务,或者感受更多的控制力。"

Psychologists, along with the gamers themselves, say the benefits go beyond fun or amusement. Many people use gaming to find moments of stress relief throughout the workday, to cope with a boring role or as a way to feel more in control.

"游戏或许有助于提升创造性思维和解决问题的能力。专家认为,抽出几分钟时间玩游戏,暂时脱离棘手的任务,或许可以激发新的视角来看待商业问题,也有可能帮助你在举步不前的时候重新整理思路。"

Gaming might also help with creative thinking and problem solving. Stepping away from a tricky task for a few minutes of gaming might spur a new perspective on a business problem or help to reset your mind during an especially difficult day, say experts.

"能够短期从工作中抽离出来可以带来不小的帮助。弗格森称,虽然传统游戏都要在游戏机或电脑上运行,而且花费时间较长,但基于智能手机的新型游戏往往只需要几分钟便可获得乐趣."

It helps that it’s getting easier to play in short bursts. While games were traditionally played in longer increments on consoles or computers, new app-based games tend to provide a few minutes of fun without drawing you into an hours-long adventure, said Ferguson.
