Technology has played a major role in bringing a revolution in the modern world. It has helped people from all walks of life to excel and develop their thoughts and ideas into meaningful products and gadgets that we are using today such as mobile phones, laptops, electric cars, and others. I am going to illustrate here the advantages and disadvantages of technology and explain the impact it has had on our life.
Throughout history, human beings have continuously striven for progress in the field of science. But in the last century, we have made rapid strides in technology. This advancement in technology has brought a revolution which has sparked progress in the everyday life of people. There are many advantages of this advancement in technology. People are living a healthier life now and with the use of computers and advanced machinery, the diagnosis of diseases has been made easier and has helped doctors throughout the world.
The innovation of the internet and cellphones has helped us to connect with each other at the touch of the screen anywhere in the world. The electric cars being driven nowadays are helping to reduce carbon footprint. It has helped people track their daily exercises and made them more productive. Students can gain education now sitting at home with the help of the internet and computer as opposed to the previous generation who physically had to go to colleges and universities to get a degree. This in turn saves time which can be used to do other fruitful things.
However, there are some disadvantages of this advancement in technology which has made us lazy and disturbed in many sections of society. I am going to explain how it has negatively influenced our lives. People of the old days had no access to the internet, television or the cars which we have. They used to be physically active and less lazy. They spent time on productive things like carpentry, painting, running, swimming which used to keep them fit. Nowadays, everyone is using mobile phones 24X7, sitting at home and interacting less with others. This in turn is leading to a lifestyle of unhealthy eating disorders which is harmful for society.
The present generation of children are becoming lazier and playing video games all the time. This has caused massive parenting issues. Also, the advancement in technology is leading to increased carbon footprint which is destroying our environment resulting in various health problems for the entire humanity.
In conclusion, I would like to say that technology has greatly influenced our lives and hobbies. It has had a positive as well as a negative impact. As explained above, the advantages of technology outweigh the disadvantages in my opinion. Therefore, it is upon us to make the right use of technology and not misuse it so that we and our coming generations can lead happy, healthy, and prosperous lives.
