1 in 3 Smartphone Notifications Make Your Mood Worse

posted by Drew -

It's time to limit our notifications. 

We're like Pavlov's dogs every time our phones buzz or beep.  We grab them IMMEDIATELY to see why they notified us.  Could it be a text?  An email?  A Snap?  We can't WAIT to find out.  And then . . . we're bummed. 

 

 

According to a new study by Nottingham Trent University in England, one out of THREE notifications we get on our smartphones put us in a WORSE mood.

 

 

And the notifications that are most likely to bum us out are phone or app software updates . . . WiFi issues . . . and work emails or messages.  Group texts from friends are the most likely to put us in a better mood.
