Think twice before you accept that Facebook friend request! According to a recent report from the University of Edinburg, large social networks lead to anxiety and, unsurprisingly, being "friends" with employers and parents leads to the greatest jump in stress. The study authors say that having a ton of friends increases the likelihood that you'll do or say something that will offend somebody, which can cause you to worry every time you post something.
Your action plan: Take a look at your friends and "defriend" those you only consider acquaintances. Or better yet, take a brief hiatus from social media today. We know, we know—even going a day without checking Facebook makes us break out into a cold sweat. But if you find yourself constantly stressed, a short break could do you good. Why not power down your laptop, log out of your Facebook mobile app, and catch up with a friend in person?
