1. Turn off those awful ‘Blue Ticks’ that give you palpitations.
WhatsApp’s read receipts can be the best and worst thing all at the same time.
Panic usually ensues when you see that someone has read your message but is failing to respond with the speed you would like them to. What could possibly be occupying their time outside of your very important message consisting of two emojis?
There is a way to save yourself this stress.
Head to your WhatsApp Settings, Account, Privacy and turn off the ‘Read Receipts toggle.
Once you’ve done this, those ticks will disappear and you will have more time to answer those endless group chats at your leisure.
However, you should be warned that this will also stop you from seeing when people have read your messages, which (depending on your personality) may also cause your stress levels to rise.
