The Benefits of Tetris

bg-tetris-10You may get gamer thumbs doing it, but you’ll look better. You can lose weight playing mindless video games. You have to make sure it’s the right one and Tetris is it. A study (by researchers at Plymouth University) found playing for three minutes can reduce your food cravings. It can also keep you from drinking alcohol and smoking. Basically it’s replacing addiction with distraction. Among study participants with cravings, 24% said they were weakest when playing Tetris. Their need for a Xanax prescription went through the roof.

Brent Lee

QMIX Afternoon Guy, Brent Lee, grew up near Greensburg -- where he started working on the radio at age 14. Growing up as an only child may have been lonely at times, but it led him to be the creative, fun guy we all enjoy on the radio! Brent graduated from North Decatur High School and Ball State University. His first summer during college, Brent actually filled-in as the QMIX Afternoon Guy all summer, when there was a full-time opening on our staff. Little did he know he would return to that job many years later. Brent has worked in radio all over Indiana (and a bit in Illinois too), claiming to never have had a real job. And he’s has been back at QMIX since 2011. We hope he’ll be here for a long time to come! Some of Brent’s favorite things are IndyCar, movies and good food!
