(CNN)– A new study finds binge-watching television shows could be bad for you.
Researchers with the University of Texas in Austin say they’ve found a link between marathon TV sessions and depression and loneliness.
The researchers surveyed more than 300 18-to-29-year-old people about their television watching habits and how often they felt lonely or depressed.
The researcher say the survey found the more lonely and depressed participants were; the more likely they were to binge watch TV.
Researchers say the findings suggest binge-watching should not be viewed as a “harmless addiction.”
They note binge-watching can be related to obesity and fatigue and may lead some to neglect their work and relationships.
