Binge-watching your favorite TV shows: it's a guilty pleasure for many.
But a new study from the University of Texas at Austin suggests the urge to sit down and watch several hours of TV could have something to do with loneliness and depression.
HealthDay reports researchers interviewed more than 300 people about their TV habits and moods. They discovered the lonelier or more depressed a person felt, the greater the chance he or she would binge-watch.
