If you grew up during the 90s, like me, then Solitaire (along with Minesweeper <-- remember that?) was probably one of your go to PC games back in the day. There has always been something so relaxing about playing Solitaire; it's almost like a tension relief ball for the mind. While the PCs of yesterday are long gone, that classic digital Solitaire game feeling is still going strong with the Solitaire App by MobilityWare! I’ve had this app for YEARS, and I can honestly say I play it at least three times a day. However, this holiday season I’m playing it more than ever. Here’s why:
#1 – Because Checkout Lines are Longer than The Lord of the Rings
I can’t STAND long lines (pun intended), they’re just one of those things that irk me whenever I find myself presented with them. But alas, the holiday season wouldn’t be complete without scores of mile long lines in every shop and market. So how do I maintain my sanity and keep the will to stay in place? Solitaire, that’s how. When faced with an hour long line at the checkout counter I whip out my phone and head straight for my Solitaire app. It’s the perfect app for killing time and having a little stress-free fun. I swear time seems to go by a little bit faster when playing Solitaire because before I know it, I’m next in line and genuinely a little bummed that my play time is over.
#2 – Because Holiday Travel is Never a Breeze
Long drives to the airport? Unexpected flight delays? Extended layovers? Yup, these holiday travel blunders are notoriously prevalent during this time of year, but fortunately, the Solitaire app can help distract from all the chaos. I find myself playing Solitaire constantly while I travel; on the plane, in the airport, in the Uber on the way to the airport, it’s just the perfect way to take my mind off of the stress that goes into holiday transit.
#3 – Because the Holiday Pressure Struggle is VERY Real
Last-minute shopping + food prep + gift wrapping + cookie making + house decoration + Elf on The Shelf relocating = holiday mania. When I start to get bogged down with my holiday to-do list, I like to take a few minutes for myself to just decompress by playing a quick game of Solitaire. For this, I typically play using the Winning Deals feature, which creates a game that deals hands guaranteed to have at least one winning solution. Frankly, I just love that feeling of accomplishment, especially when I have so many tasks left to do, it’s good to have a little winning moment before getting back to work on my holiday projects.
I’m sending out a MASSIVE thank you to the Solitaire App for helping me stay sane this holiday season. I’m sure my husband and kids are also pretty thankful for this as well!
