A recent survey conducted by the University of California, Berkeley, found that 57 percent of millennials were more likely to get up and walk around when their watch stopped than a person in their early 20s.
The survey also found that those who got up and walked were more active on social media, engaged in more activity and were more positive about their lives.
The poll also found millennials are more likely than older generations to be social media addicts.
According to the survey, they were the only age group where 24 percent of them used social media regularly.
And just 42 percent of older generations were active on Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat, while 67 percent of young people were active there.
But a study published in the journal PLOS One found that a group of younger people may be able to benefit from taking time off from their smartphones.
The study found that in a survey of 1,907 adults aged 18-34, those who were engaged in social media in the previous 12 months were nearly three times as likely to report a sense of well-being compared to those who didn’t.
The findings were similar for those who had not used social network sites in the past 12 months, with those who engaged in online activities at least six times reporting more positive mental health than those who did not.
And a study from the University at Buffalo found that social media use was associated with more health, happiness and well-health than it was with income, education and race.
