Research Suggests Our Smartphones Are Upsetting Us

According to British researchers, a leading cause of bad moods stems from your smartphone.

The study by Nottingham Trent University showed that one third of notifications that we receive have a negative effect on our mood.

These notifications trigger feelings of hostility, nervousness, fear and shame which were not present before the phone was picked up. 

From the 50 participants in the study, over half a million notifications were received over a period of five weeks.
