In today’s society people are over reliant on their mobile phone. People before if they needed to contact others they would have to visit or even send a letter. It is ideal for family or friends abroad to keep in contact, but some people take advantage of this facility. Some families are so reliant; they won’t walk up the stairs to ask a question. Instead out of pure laziness will just send a text or even worse will be too lazy to type out the message and will simply send a voice note.
Families are now constantly using the television, while eating, before sleeping or anytime they are free during the day. This has led to the deterioration of family communication and I believe this has lead to the increasingly growing numbers of devoice rates around the world. People now don’t even read books, education, communication, and health is suffering because of this. If someone was to read book they would now use an EBook reader which is still on a screen damaging your eyes, this shows people’s mentality has changed to completely rely on technology even though simpler, possibly more enjoyable methods exists.
People now feel a sense of accomplishment by playing sports on video game consoles instead of going outdoors and really participating in these sports, even at a none-competitive level like playing with your friends. Another example of being reliant on technology is transport. People now do not use maps and instead use GPS on various devices, People now use ‘Self-parking cars’ which will lead to people in the future not having to learn this skill and hill-assist which some people now may find it difficult to drive without any of these.
From what I have said, you can see how today’s society is completely and over dependent on technology to a point where it is getting abused for their personal benefit due to laziness.
