‘Second screening’ may lead to depression
‘Second screening’ may lead to depression.
Do you surf on your tablet or text on your phone while watching TV? If so, how’s your mood? A new study asserts that the more you multitask using multiple screens, the more likely you are to feel depressed or anxious. The question is: why?
Cognitive psychologist Mark Becker at Michigan State University said that the question remains whether “second screening” is the cause of the psychological stress, or whether people who are anxious and depressed tend to use multiple screens at once.
