What makes you happiest online?

Introducing our Internet of Happiness Guide

Love spending your evenings watching the latest Netflix series?

Or is sharing a snap on Instagram your favourite way to get those endorphins flowing?

Each of us has an online activity we rely on for a quick mood boost, or to help us wind down after a busy day.

In fact, a recent survey we conducted suggests millennials (25-34-year-olds) get their happiness from the internet in a big way. Growing up amongst huge technological change, young people are using the web to make new friends - and even find love - far more than any other generation. And 46% of millennials we talked to said social media enhances their self-esteem. So, when it comes to our day-to-day happiness, it’s clear the internet is our go-to source.

Kicking those bad online habits

Let’s be honest. We all indulge in a few online activities that aren’t so good for our health. If you’ve ever scrawled endlessly through your Facebook feed or fired off a few work emails late into the night, you may have experienced some of the negative effects of social media that can leave us feeling irritable and a bit, well, down in the dumps.

But, according to the experts, there’s nothing bad about the internet itself. It’s how we put our data or broadband to use that matters most. And with almost half of 25-34-year-olds saying the internet makes them feel more in control of their life, it’s clear the worldwide web has a hugely positive influence on our lives.

Take our quiz and test yourself

If you want to understand which online activities make you feel good and which are best to avoid, we’ve created the ultimate online happiness tool to help.

Take our quiz to discover your online browsing style, and how you could give it a quick ‘refresh’ to get more happiness from the web.

We’ve also got fascinating insights from a psychologist, sociologist and tech expert on the simple dos and don’ts for social media. From limiting time spent looking at photos of your ex, to scheduling in a cat video during your lunch break, these are easy tips that anyone can follow.

So, if one of your New Year’s resolutions is to develop good online habits, check out our Internet of Happiness Guide to help you stay internet happy in 2018!
