Happiness Is Avoiding Smartphone

Who can resist the electronic temptation !!  Well, A new study by Kent State University shows people who can ignore texts or calls on their mobile devices are “more” likely to be content and “less” likely to suffer from anxiety.  Researchers studied 5-hundred test subjects on their daily phone usage to gauge how it affected their outlook on life.  They found far from making people feel more connected ....it only heightened their anxiety and sense of obligation.  Previous research claimed mobile phones improve social interaction and helped reduce feelings of isolation.  Now it turns out, the opposite might be true.
