The Scientists at the University of Toledo asked North Americans about their binge-watching habits and the study is pretty interesting. For the study, binge-watching meant consuming two to five consecutive hours of television in one day. (Come on, binge watching is definitely more than 5 hours.)
Those who identified as being binge-watchers show higher levels of stress, anxiety and depression than those who aren’t binge-watchers.
Now there is not need to panic about this! The results don’t show the cause, just a correlation so it could all be a coincidence. However if you do feel you’re experiencing stress, anxiety, depression etc, please see a doctor. We care about you MP!ers.
