Recently, the British Psychological Society found out and presented vital information about a teen’s pressure coming from social media networks or activities may actually cause anxiety, lack of sleep and depression. LiveScience also reported that another research conducted by University of Glasgow indicate that teens who are experiencing a great amount of pressure by constantly going online usually have issues with anxiety and depression. Study co-author Heather Cleland Woods, a Psychology Administration teacher at Glasgow, told via HealthDay that adolescence might be a period of an increase in vulnerability into an onset of anxiety and depression.
Cleland Woods added that parents and students must consider what they call “digital sunset”. This means that they should stop checking emails or go online, but instead finish the day and have adequate sleep. For more information regarding this post, go to the source.
