The study, titled Lost in the Feed: Exploring the Lived Experiences of Students on Doomscrolling, aims to provide insights on the effects of doom scrolling in students and their behavior towards this phenomenon. Furthermore, it aimed to provide insight into the relationship between doom scrolling and the elements uncovered during the researchers' interview. The exploratory research design is being employed in this investigation. For qualitative research, use the lived experience approach, and for quantitative research, employ the descriptive method. The qualitative phase involved ten (10) interviewers, while the quantitative phase included one hundred twenty (120) responses. The respondents were chosen using Purposive Sampling, a non-probability sampling method. The results of the factors studied revealed that the selected learners at Noveleta Senior High School are affected by doom scrolling and have a high level of doing so.

On the contrary, respondents engage in a high level of doom scrolling. Using the Spearman r-correlation, the researcher discovered a significant relationship on Doomscrolling with Time Management (r = 0.816, p < .001), Procrastination, (r = 0.889, p < .001), Social Media (r = 0.832, p = < .001), Mental Health and Doomscrolling (r = 0.729, p < .001). The results indicate that by doing doom scrolling it affects their behavior to their daily task and their well-being.
