Week 13 | Put Your Darn Phone Down: It’s Scientifically Proven That Your Digital Device Is Ruining Y

(Audio Guide) I know a guy who when he goes on a first date, he leaves his phone at home. How wonderful and rare! In fact, when was the last time you boarded an elevator and relished in the awkwardness that is standing next to strangers without pulling out your phone? Have you ever looked around your Uber pool to realize everyone (including the driver!) is scrolling through their screens? I suppose apples have always been an eerie temptation for us humans.

A study from NASA luckily confirmed that, “common houseplants..not only make indoor spaces more attractive, they also help to purify the air”; (Clean Air Gardening).
