Posted September 01, 2018 07:58:30When you’re stuck in a noisy room, it can be difficult to concentrate and concentrate well enough to concentrate for long periods of time, a new study has found.
The new study by the Australian National University suggests that people who are in a room with noise floors are more likely to forget to stop talking, to become agitated or to get in trouble, and have a higher chance of developing anxiety and depression.
In a study published in the Journal of Anxiety Disorders, researchers found that when people were trapped in rooms with noise flooring, they were more likely than those who were not to notice when they were in the noise floor.
The study found that those who had been in a loud room for 30 minutes or more were more than twice as likely to feel anxious and depressed compared to those who did not.
This study is a wake-up call that we should be very careful when we are trapped in noisy rooms, said lead researcher and research assistant Professor Christopher Haggerty.
“We’re very concerned about people who have been trapped in these conditions for long enough, and are living with anxiety and depressed thoughts and behaviours,” he said.
“So this is a good wake-Up Call to the general public, so we’re encouraging people to have their loud room checked.”
He said that noise floorers should have to check their surroundings daily.
“In general, if there’s no noise floor there, we think it’s better to get out of the house,” he added.
The researchers said that their findings should encourage people to take action to reduce their risk of developing depression.
The survey also found that people living in noisy environments had a higher risk of depression.
“People living in rooms where noise floors were present were more at risk of mental health problems, including depression,” Dr Haggerton said.
