Work, kids, bills, the weather - life offers plenty of stressful challenges. If you're feeling overwhelmed you should log off to recharge. A new study published in the Journal of Social Psychology, proves that people's stress levels go down when they take a break from Facebook.

My Facebook feed is filled with drama so this totally makes sense! They found the  production of the stress hormone, cortisol, went down when people avoided Facebook.  The researchers wrote, "Our results suggest that the typical Facebook user may occasionally find the large amount of social information available taxing and Facebook vacations could ameliorate this stress - at least in the short term."

Don't want to ditch social media? Try deleting/blocking the dummies that are causing spewing hate and causing drama on your newsfeed. That'll help!
