What does scrollaxing mean?

Scrolling through social media and email to relax

Scrollaxing is the act of scrolling through email or a social feed in order to relax. Many people scrollax in order to disengage from interacting with other humans in order to decompress from a stressful day.

When a person has a stressful day sometimes he just wants to be alone and not put any effort into communicating with anyone. So as a way to stay connected to people and still be entertained in some ways is to scroll through a social feed or email to see what is going in people's lives but not have to directly talk to them.


It was a tough day at work yesterday so I spent about 3 hours scrollaxing on the couch when I got home

Scrollaxing is so much fun
