A new study finds that the internet is good for our mental health.
That’s because it can make us feel better, and it can also help us avoid stressful situations.
New Scientist spoke to scientists to find out why.
1:15 New Scientist: How does the internet help you feel better?
Peter Jones: One of the things that makes us human is that we’re constantly feeling anxious, and the internet gives us a way to keep that anxiety in check.
So the internet can help us reduce the pressure that we feel, because we can turn to the internet and we can talk to others who are feeling anxious about their lives.
2:00 New Scientist (Video): How do you think the internet will help people feel better about themselves?
Peter: The internet is so accessible, it allows us to be vulnerable, to explore ourselves, to get help, and to find people who are there for us. 3:00 Alan Dershowitz: What are some of the positive effects of the internet?
Peter : We are seeing that we can use technology to improve our mental and physical health.
This has happened over the past 20 years, and I think it’s great.
We have a better understanding of our mental illnesses.
We are becoming better at self-regulation.
And this is going to continue to change.
4:00 Peter Jones, PhD: The way we think about mental illness is that there is this continuum of symptoms, and each of these different symptoms can be diagnosed, and then it is possible to have treatment, and that treatment is available to all of us.
The internet gives people a way out of that.
It allows people to explore themselves.
5:00 Dan Delucchi: Can the internet make us happier?
Dan: We all want to feel good, and for people to feel better they need to be on the right path.
They need to take care of themselves.
They also need to get the right kind of treatment.
They don’t need to feel hopeless, that’s just the way things work.
6:00 Professor Daniel Gershenfeld: We have to get over the idea that we need to live like we live.
We don’t have to live in a certain way.
Dan: The more we can explore ourselves the happier we will be. 7:00 Prof. Dan Delucca: When you see a story of someone who is having a difficult time, what do you do?
Dan : I don’t feel like I have to feel sad for that person.
When you’re experiencing that emotional pain and you can’t see it, then it’s probably not worth it. 8:00 The study of the psychology of the Internet article What makes the internet different?
It is a form of communication, so we can see each other and talk to each other.
It can be more accessible than a phone or email.
It’s not so expensive.
It doesn’t need a subscription.
It isn’t tied to a specific company.
The data we see on it is open.
It has a community, and we know that people who talk to other people, they feel happier, they have more positive feelings about themselves, and they have a stronger sense of self-worth.
And the most important thing is that these positive feelings are not tied to one particular person.
What makes us happy?
It’s the same as saying, “I’m happy when I meet other people”.
That’s what makes us feel good.
So we can share that with others.
And if you look at a person’s Facebook status, they can see a lot more about themselves than just about a face on the screen.
It is more than just a photo.
