Study: Texting a source of stress

Study Finds - In its earliest days, texting was a simple way to shoot a short message (comprised of nothing else but letters and numbers) to someone in a jiff. But with photos, videos, emojis, gifs, and countless other bells and whistles causing so many of us to keep our heads buried in our devices constantly, text messaging has become a way of life. So much so, that a new study finds that nearly a third of people find texting to be a source of stress in their lives.

One in five participants agreed that texting is so stressful, they struggle to keep up with their messages, while one in nine admit they ignore them entirely. But the problem seems to be affecting millennials the most. About three quarters of baby boomers don’t find texting to be stressful at all, compared to 58 percent of millennials.
