Did Animal Crossing Teach You a Lot About Self-Care?

The year-long pandemic undeniably affected a lot of us and our well-being. We are unable to meet our friends and families and are forced to stay inside our homes. It deprives us of the chance to unwind and relax in parks, nature, coffee shops, and more.

As a result, most of us feel that we lost control even in the tiniest aspects of our daily lives. Animal Crossing provided a paradise for most of us when things get a little challenging. 

It is a game that gives freedom to its players to do whatever they want. It does not have any final stage or concept of level-up. It simply provides people entertainment and a chance to interact with the characters, making it much more fun.

Hi, I’m Karen, a content curator and writer for Quote Ambition; I’m also a marketing and advertising professional. Beyond the keyboard and the screen, I’m someone who’s out to enjoy every bit that life has to offer!

Poetry, philosophy, history, and movies are all topics I love writing about! However, my true passion is in traveling, photography, and finding common ground to which everyone from different cultures can relate.

With the many places I’ve been to, I found that love, inspiration, and happiness are some things that bring people together. No matter how different we are on the outside, I’m a true believer that our emotions don’t lie; if you dig deep into our psyche, we’re all the same inside.

This belief was further amplified when I joined Quote Ambition. Through the quotes I’ve read, collected, organized, and written about, I found that humans are resilient, creative, and compassionate.

We take from each others’ hearts and courage, and it’s through our individual experiences that we learn how to rise above our challenges and pain. In so many ways, Quote Ambition is a platform that allows people from all over the world to gain the inspiration they need anytime, anywhere!
