Taking A Break From Social Media, Can Help Improve Mental Health Reports New Study!

Could you stay away from social media for a week?

Results of a study that asked participants to take a week-long break from social media find positive effects on wellbeing, depression and anxiety.



The study, carried out by a team of researchers at the University of Bath (UK), studied the mental health effects of a week-long social media break. For some participants in the study, this meant freeing up around nine hours of their week which would otherwise have been spent scrolling Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and TikTok.
