Put your phone down and listen.
Even while you’re sleeping, your social media persona is engaging with the world. This “always on” mentality is shaping the psychology of a generation—for good or ill.
Having 24/7 social media in the palm of your hand means you’re never more than a “like” or text away from your spouse, your parents, your ex, or your job. This is a fundamentally different way to live than all previous generations.
This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) talk to Dr. Leora Trub, a psychology professor at Pace University, who has authored numerous studies about the power our phones have on mental wellness.
