New Zealand sci­en­tists from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ota­go have shown that the ban on social net­works has lit­tle effect on the health and psy­che of the child, in con­trast to the qual­i­ty of sleep, which is real­ly worth watch­ing.

The study involved 132 uni­ver­si­ty stu­dents. Half of them used social net­works Face­book, Insta­gram and Snapchat for no more than 10 min­utes a day for one week for each appli­ca­tion.

Com­pared with the con­trol group, whose mem­bers used social net­works in the pre­vi­ous mode, the study par­tic­i­pants not­ed only minor changes in their men­tal and phys­i­cal health. Most inter­est­ing­ly, even these minor changes were asso­ci­at­ed with improved sleep qual­i­ty. By quit­ting social media, the sub­jects slept more and there­fore felt slight­ly bet­ter.

Sci­en­tists advise par­ents not to focus on the use of social net­works by the younger gen­er­a­tion, but to focus on ensur­ing that the child fol­lows the regime and gets enough sleep. That is, an impor­tant com­po­nent of sleep hygiene should be a ban on the use of social net­works in bed.

At the same time, researchers do not deny the pos­si­ble influ­ence of social net­works on ado­les­cents in terms of their increased sen­si­tiv­i­ty to cer­tain top­ics. For exam­ple, to your own per­cep­tion of your body against the back­ground of pho­tos on Insta­gram, etc.
