Doomscrolling or doomsurfing is the act of spending an excessive amount of time reading large quantities of negative news online. A 2019 NAS study found that doomscrolling can be linked to a decline in mental and physical health. Doomscrolling can also be linked to compulsive behaviour. This is especially poignant for Queer People, considering the current political climate, and discrimination that we are subject to.
