What the world’s healthiest people have in common
15 of 18
They spend less time on Facebook and more time face-to-face
The more time you spend on social media, the less happy you are, according to a study published in Depression and Anxiety. Looking at pictures and reading updates from friends leads you to compare your worst self to their best selves, leaving you feeling sad and left out. Healthy people limit their time on social media and prioritise spending their time with loved ones in real life. Sure, you may miss out on a few baby announcements or birthday pictures but you’ll be happier and healthier.
