It’s a fact that we are currently living in the age of technology, and there seems to constantly be new things being created. However some of the things that they have been creating seem to be making people lazier, and lazier. There is nothing wrong with technology, but there is something wrong when it starts to affect people’s health, both mentally and physically.
Do you remember the days when we actually had to sit down and spell things out the old fashioned way? You remember when you actually had to learn the word, study it, and remember how to spell it? Well those days don’t really exist for our kids. They don’t have to do this since every device has a built in spell checker system. This actually does not even require you to think. For some devices it will automatically check your paper as you are typing it out. Was this a great item to create? Yes, but in the long run it really has made people much lazier than they have ever before.
The days of going to visit your friends at their home seems to be gone. Now kids just use social networking to talk with their friends and visit with them. This encourages kids to stay inside all day, and plugged in. Sadly it actually encourages kids to socialize less than they ever have before.
Scooters for kids
I am not saying that there is anything wrong with scooters, but I have seen more kids riding on scooters than I actually see riding bikes. I’m not talking about the foot powered scooters. I’m talking about those electric scooters that allow the kids to rudely buzz by you, while you are walking on the side walk. I know, it’s very annoying isn’t it? Kids just stand their and let the bike do all the work. If you ask them which they would prefer to ride between a scooter or a bike, they always say the scooter, because the bike is too much work.
Believe it or not this is also a part of the technology world. This has made it lazier and a lot more unhealthy. Because many people find themselves short on time, they purchase frozen meals that can be placed in the microwave, and cooked easily. This encourages us to cook less and just heat and heat. Certainly not the best option to choose from.
Roomba Floor Cleaner
OK, I have to admit this is one device that I do like. It really does save you time and energy, to keep your home clean. However when you think about it, laziness is an end result. If you have kids why cant’ they vacuum the floor? Instead of spoiling your kids and making them lazy, you can show them how to do clean, instead of letting a making do it for you.
