Smartphones can make your depression worse

New Delhi, Aug 27 (ANI): If you are someone who turns to smartphones when depressed, then you should know that it is not a good solution. A new study has revealed that depressed people, who look for solutions through electronic interactions like smartphones, often tend to make their lives worse.

Prabu David of the Michigan State University's College of Communication Arts said that using a mobile phone for temporary relief from negative emotions could worsen psychological conditions. In the study, the researchers examined two pathways for habitual use of a smart phone i.e.

to pass the time or entertain, or to alleviate feelings of sadness or depression by seeking out others. David said it was the second reason that could trouble.

The researchers agreed that using a mobile phone in moderation was not a bad thing but urged the people not to replace it with real human interaction. So, the next time you feel low, look for a friend rather depending on your smartphones.
