This is a question that I have wondered about. While this graphic gives an abbreviated, visual response to the question, it provides key insights into the issue. 


The image cleverly illustrates the signs of narcissism before depicting the negative effects of social media, which include ADHD, depression and narcissistic personality disorder and addiction, among others. 


It would be interesting to know the reasons WHY "People who use Facebook the most tend to have more narcissistic or insecure personalities" and why "those who [score] higher in narcissism also posted more often on twitter". While this post points out yet another important issue surrounding social media that cannot be ignored by business professionals and users alike, it does not provide enough information for the reasoning behind its statements.

How Positive Emotions Lead to Better Health

How Positive Emotions Lead to Better Health | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

New research suggests that meditation or any other mood-enhancing activity can serve as a nutrient for the human body.


“Positive emotion, positive social connections, and physical health influence one another in a self-sustaining, upward-spiral dynamic,” concludes a research team led by psychologist Bethany Kok of the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences. It found upbeat emotions inspired by a meditative practice led to greater feelings of connectedness with others, which positively impacted “a biological resource that has been linked to numerous health benefits.”

I think as we learn to become quiet and relaxed within, the stress chemicals go away.  Maybe this is us going back to our natural state.
