FOR A HAPPIER LIFE, GIVE UP FACEBOOK

FOR A HAPPIER LIFE, GIVE UP FACEBOOK

Always envious? Got a non-existent social life and struggle to concentrate? All this might be down to Facebook if you believe a study showing those who go a week without using the social network feel happier than others.
Carried out by the Happiness Research Institute, the study involved a sample of 1,095 people in Denmark who were divided into two groups, half of whom continued using Facebook while the others stopped. “We focused on Facebook because it has users across age groups,” Meik Wiking, HRI’s chief executive said.
After a week, those people who hadn’t been on Facebook said they were more satisfied with their lives, with 88 percent of them describing themselves as “happy” compared with 81 per cent from the second group.
Some 84 per cent said they appreciated their lives compared with 75 per cent in the other group, and only 12 percent described themselves as dissatisfied, compared with 20 percent among those who continued using Facebook. (AGENCIES)
