I am a busy mom. With three kids and two dogs in my home to care for, my day is very eventful. The stress and anxiety of handling a household of six, sometimes gets the best of me. I end up with a headache. There is so much of cooking, cleaning, and grocery shopping that I barely ever think about doing anything else. Still, I manage to end my day with a smile. Do you know how? I play a game of solitaire.
I do not play cards in real life. Life is often very busy and I prefer to talk to my friends and enjoy a nice meal at a restaurant instead of playing cards. But solitaire is still my preferred game. I play classic solitaire and spider solitaire on most occasions. However, the classic version is still my favorite. It is a great way to kill time and I love the way it helps me concentrate as well. It is almost like meditation.
How did I learn about solitaire?
I first learned about solitaire when I was looking for an educational game for my kids on the Apple store. I came across a cool puzzle game that my youngest loves to play with. I saw a contact Mobilityware option and realized that it is developed by one of most trusted mobile game developers in the world. Out of sheer curiosity, I checked out the other games available through them. I fell in love with their great repertoire of games and thought that it was cool to try one myself. I downloaded solitaire from the store and immediately started playing with it.
It wasn’t very difficult to understand. I learned the game quickly but it took some time for me to become a pro. I think I play at least 3-4 games of solitaire every day. Sometimes I do that while my kids are playing around the house too. In fact, this game has become a daily routine for me. I play it every time before going to bed.
Why do I love solitaire?
This game helps me concentrate a lot. At the end of the day I am too tired to think about anything. My mind is racing and there are a hundred things that I must care about. But when I play solitaire, I am able to concentrate a lot. It is like meditation before going to sleep. After playing a couple of solitaire games, I am usually very relaxed and it even helps me sleep. We all know that sleep is necessary for a busy mom like me. So, if solitaire does the trick, so be it.
This game is available as a free Android solitaire app as well as a free iTunes solitaire app. You too can download and enjoy the game. If you have not played it yet, I suggest that you play it right now and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere, just like I do. I am a solitaire fan and trust me, casual card gaming never gets better than this app. Download it and let me know what you feel about it. I am sure you will love it.
