I read many studies every day about mental health and anxiety. Some I read and think that sounds a bit farfetched or think well, that study is a bit specific and maybe not accurate.
Yesterday I read a study just like that. It stated that playing video games can make you anxious. Its reasons were that it is because you are sat down for a long period of time. On reading the article, I thought to myself, well actually, it probably isn’t the video game making you anxious then, it is the sitting for so long, you could just as well become anxious sat reading a book for a long period of time, or binge watching Orange Is The New Black on Netflix.
New data has shown Chrysalis Not For Profit that the amount of teenagers that have been admitted to hospital for eating disorders has nearly doubled in the last three years.
Challenges of teenage life
A young person will face many challenges as they enter their teenage years. This can cause them to develop mental health conditions such as stress, depression and eating disorders. Statistics quoted by mental health charity the Mental Health Foundation, show that 1.6 million people in the UK have an eating disorder.
I have just read a very interesting study which I wanted to share with you all. The results may just surprise you.
What is this study I hear you asking, well, I will tell you! You may be familiar with some symptoms of feeling anxious, whether that is sweaty palms or a racing heartbeat. But, it turns out there is a less obvious side effect, and that is that anxious people are less empathetic. I know, I’m as surprised as you are, but it actually makes a lot of sense.
