Study: Putting your phone away makes social situations more fun

Today’s Video of the Day comes from the University of British Columbia and features a look at how smartphones may not always bring us closer together.

In a study involving different people at a local cafe, the researchers found that people enjoyed the experience more when they put their phones away.

The findings back previous research suggesting that people who are mindful of the present moment enjoy experiences more than people who are thinking about the past or future.
