(Time) Do You Use Your Cell Phone a Lot? It Might Be Making You More Anxious
Too much time spent on your cell phone doesn’t mean you’re more connected and happier.
New research from scientists at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio shows that the more time college students spend on their cellphones, the more anxious they were and the more their academic performance suffered.
Jacob Barkley, Aryn Karpinski and Andrew Lepp studied 500 Kent State University students, each of whom reported their daily cell phone use for the year as well as their level of anxiety and satisfaction with their life.
