While many people believe that multitasking may be the sign of a healthy and sharp brain, a new study suggests that multitasking in terms of media usage may be a symptom of anxiety or depression. Researchers from the Michigan State University believe that using multiple forms of media at the same time - such as playing a computer game while watching TV - could be linked to mental disorders. Mark Becker, lead investigator of the study, expressed surprise over finding a clear link between media multitasking and mental health problems, but says that the reason behind the same still remains unknown.
A new study suggests that for a lot of people with anxiety disorders, anger is more than an emotion, and in fact something that worsens their symptoms.

"This was surprising to me because irritability, which is part of the anger family, is a diagnostic feature of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)," she explains.
Seeing people bite their nails is not an uncommon sight. People bite their nails in excitement, fear, nervousness, or most of the times, for no reason at all. As benign as it may seem, an attempt to quit an addiction to nail biting can be even harder than quitting cigarettes. While biting nails is not painful to the person, if overdone, it can cause bleeding and pain that lasts for 2-3 days or even cause an infection. The news may upset a few habitual nail biters, but apparently, medical experts are now planning to change its classification from a mere habit to a full-fledged obsessive-compulsive disorder.
