Impact of social media on health and heartbeat versus sense of time

According to the results of a study  by experts from Swansea University, among other institutions, reducing social media use by up to 15 minutes a day can significantly improve a person’s mental and physical health. People who were asked to reduce their time spent on social media for three months were less likely to get the flu and complain of cold sores, warts and papillae. Members of this group reduced being on social media by an average of 40 min per day and enjoyed a 50% improvement in sleep quality. They were also 30% less likely to have symptoms of depression.

People with elevated stress levels are 37% more likely to experience cognitive decline, affecting their ability to remember, concentrate and learn new things. As a result, Emory University researchers who conducted the study are calling for regular stress screening of patients in primary care clinics. This will help to minimise the risk of developing dementia.

According to experts at Cornell University, the experience of time from moment to moment is synchronised in humans with the heart rate and changes with the heart rate. According to scientists, the heart is one of the guardians of time for the human brain and plays a fundamental role in our sense of its passing. The link between time perception and heartbeat suggests that time perception is rooted in bioenergetics and helps the brain manage effort and resources based on changing body states, including the heart rate.
