‘Excess of everything is bad’ and this aptly applies to use of digital technology too. According to new research it can lead to one being less motivated to engage in studies leading to extreme anxiety during exams. What makes it worse is the increased feeling of loneliness it produces.
Of the various students enrolled for the study, researchers found a negative relationship between internet addiction and motivation to study. They faced difficulty in organising their learning productively and were more anxious about the upcoming exams. This also led to the formation of a vicious cycle of poorer social interaction, loneliness and loneliness making studies harder.
