If you think about it, Friends was kind of the last moment in our history pre-dating smart phones and Facebook. In a way, it was a time of peace and community before we got sucked into a world of selfies. Not saying that’s a bad thing!

However, Jennifer Aniston recently joined Arianna Huffington on the first episode of her Thrive Global Podcast to discuss why. “We were jokingly saying that if Friends was created today, you would have a coffee shop full of people that were just staring into iPhones,” she said. “There would be no actual episodes or conversations. This is a really interesting time to be asking questions and trying to figure out where do we go before we get too far down the wormhole that we just can’t get ourselves out of.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife, who was also present at the podcast, chimed in saying that cell phones affect her sleeping habits. “If I think back before devices, I’m trying to think first, which came first, my bad sleeping habits or a device? I honestly think I used to sleep beautifully and I don’t think I attributed to the fact that these phones came into our lives that have actually started to disrupt our sleep.”
