Gaming excessively is the opposite of getting in shape.

Addiction to video games can contribute to depression, anxiety and low self-esteem in players, affecting them both psychologically and physically.

Playing too much decreases concentration and self-control, and increases impulsiveness.

Meanwhile, daily exercise boosts self-esteem, happiness, and confidence.

Fortnite and Steam tracking will be added in the near future!
