These 6 ‘Moving’ Images Remind Us Of What We Miss Out On When We’re On Our Phones

Don’t let the little moments pass you by.

We all have a screen addict in our lives. He’s that friend who keeps his mobile phone at pinky’s reach while you’re catching up over coffee; she’s that sibling who insists on taking a picture of every single dish you order while you’re out to dinner. (Here’s hoping you’re not the screen addict in your social group).

Let’s face it, we’re addicted to our phones. According to 2014 data, Americans spend an absurd 4.7 hours on their smartphones in a day. Add in the rest of our glowing devices  ― including computers, tablets and more ― and we spend 11 hours eyeballs-to-screens, every single day. That’s a whole lot of time spent neither looking at, nor living in, the real world around us.

There’s so much more to life than the roughly 9 square inches of it we see through our phone screens. After all, life is measured in the little moments that can pass by in the blink of an eye. That’s why we’ve partnered with Chevrolet Malibu to highlight just how much we overlook when we’re plugged into our smartphones.
