Distance from social media, necessary for health…! Make distance from the phone for 15 minutes, you will get many benefits – study
A research suggests that not using social media for 15 minutes a day can improve your health significantly.
Social media has become very important for most people nowadays. Most of the information related to what is going on in the country and the world is available through social media. Some people are using it for publicity and some are using it to earn money. But do you know how bad social media can affect your health? Many times we go into anxiety, stress and depression because of this even without wanting to. A research suggests that not using social media for 15 minutes a day can improve your health significantly.
According to a study published in the Journal of Technology in Behavioral Science, ignoring social media for 15 minutes showed an average of 15 percent improvement in immune function, including colds, flu, warts, and verrucas. The study also claimed that it improved sleep quality by 50 percent and reduced depression by 30 percent. Professor Phil Reid, from Swansea University’s School of Psychology, said the data suggest that when people reduce their social media use, there can be many improvements in their lives. His physical health and psychological health can also get a lot of benefit.
Connection of social media and health!
Phil Reid said that it is yet to be confirmed whether social media actually has a deep connection with health or not. The social media platform sometimes becomes an addiction for some people and can lead to anxiety, depression and even many diseases. The less the use of social media, the better it is for health. Many times on social media, seeing the achievements of others, we go into inferiority complex or a feeling of jealousy arises. It has a bad effect on our health. Our mental health is badly affected.
