Who Answers?

Are you feeling permanently stressed and overworked? It could be due to your social media consumption. Reducing it by as little as 30 minutes a day makes a difference.

If you feel overworked and stressed, you’ll be less committed to your job and perform less well. Many companies are aware of this problem and, therefore, spend money on professionals to look after the mental health of their employees. And yet there’s a much simpler and more cost-effective way to increase satisfaction and efficiency: In a one-week study, just 30 minutes less social media use per day improved the mental health, job satisfaction and commitment of the participants. Associate Professor Julia Brailovskaia and her team from the Mental Health Research and Treatment Center at Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, and the German Center for Mental Health published their findings in the journal Behaviour & Information Technology on December 8, 2023.

A recent study underscores the transformative potential of taking a one-week break from social media, revealing substantial benefits for both job satisfaction and mental health. The research highlights how temporarily stepping away from the digital realm can lead to increased job contentment and improved overall well-being. Participants reported reduced stress levels and enhanced mood after the brief hiatus, emphasizing the importance of mindful technology use.
