Video: You Are Incomparable - Research
If you don't want to feel lonely and unhappy after the New Year holidays, visit social networks less often. Researchers at the University of Copenhagen advise this for a reason.
The survey involved 1,300 Internet users who actively follow the events of friends and acquaintances on social networks. It turned out that they all feel especially sad and depressed after such family holidays as Christmas and New Years. The feeling of stress, depression, inferiority is associated, as the survey showed, with the fact that during the holiday period a huge amount of embellished information about family happiness and the well-being of acquaintances falls on fans of social networks.
The number of photographs of “ideal families”, “ideal vacations”, and “ideal holidays” is growing significantly. And the user of social networks involuntarily forms a completely unrealistic idea of what his own life should be like. Comparison of the real oneself with the virtual image of others is not in favor of the reader. This is where the roots of self-dissatisfaction lie, and as a result, depression and stress. The recipe for treatment in this context is simple: read social networks less, do not believe everything you see and do not compare yourself with anyone. You are you.
