How long do you spend on Facebook?
A study suggests that spending less time on Facebook each day gives one a sense of well-being. By cutting down time one spends on Facebook or spending less than 20 minutes may lead to better health.
Researchers have advised that people should do more exercises like swimming and jogging instead of staring so long on the screen to check what other people are up to, news-feeds and updating status.
It’s been reported that less time on Facebook reduces feelings of envy, fear and has fewer depressive symptoms. For instance looking at people’s Facebook feeds may make one start comparing themselves with others and this may lead to envy.
On the other hand, Facebook can also be addictive and this may have a negative impact on one’s well-being with its obsessive addiction leading to stress, insomnia, depression and anxiety.
On the other hand, people are not advised to quit Facebook because this can affect their social life. However, they are advised to spend less time and use it more for physical activities and sports, which lead to positive emotions.
