Doomscrolling

Doomscrolling

This is a term that describes the habit of endlessly scrolling social media and news feeds full of doom and gloom on one’s smartphone screen, something which is eroding our mental health.

This self-destructive behaviour has become increasingly common in 2020 due to the dystopian stories and articles related to the pandemic available online and the fact that many people are jobless and sitting at home.

The Threat Cycle

One feels anxious and wants to hook the mind back to the doom and threat cycle, to gather more information.

The more time we spend doomscrolling, the more dangers and threats we stumble upon, skewing our perspective of the outside world.

Ways To Temper The Doom

  1. Set A Timer: Your social media and news feeds can be timed using the built-in utilities of the smartphone that shut off the app for the day after a certain time.
  2. Stay On Focus: Stay aware while you fire up your smartphone for what you are looking for, and refrain yourself from getting distracted towards the assortment of notifications and enticing app icons.
  3. Positive Emotions: Instead of focussing on ‘doom and gloom’, try to default towards the good, like connecting with friends and loved ones, or reading something that makes you laugh, and sending it to friends.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
