10 ways your phone makes you a better person

Think of all the trees you’ve saved by texting your BFF instead of writing them 1000-page letters.

6. You’re punctual

Telling someone exactly how late you’re going to be is sort of the same thing as being on time, right?

7. You’re in shape

Well, maybe. That depends on if you feel pressure from your smartphone to walk at least 10,000 steps and hit the gym so you can Tweet about it.

8. You may work more, but you spend more time with your family

You’re a workaholic thanks to your smartphone. But you’re a workaholic who probably works from home a couple (every) days a week.

Spending time with your family while glued to your smartphone is still spending time with your family…

9. You’re useful in an emergency

Car accident? Pull up basic first aid and information on your smartphone. Amber alert? Be on the lookout for the license plate number in the text you just got. Terrorist attack in another country? You can help spread news and information via social media sites.

10. You’re more likely to document abuse

You have a pretty powerful tool in your pocket: a portable video camera that you can use to record and photograph episodes of abuse (including, but not limited to, police violence).
