As society becomes more and more dependent on digital devices to live their lives, we will also be creating a problem. While most devices we build are to make lives easier, they also tend to make us less healthy. Take for example amazons service that delivers anything you want to your house. The days of having to go to the store for your food are long gone. You don’t have to walk up and down isles looking for things. You can just comfortably lay on your couch till you hear a knock at your door.
We have however seen this in the past when cars were invented. We are now so dependent on cars that we use them for everything. I’m sure there are many people you know that drive to their corner store instead of just walking there. There are so many benefits to no driving there its mind blowing people don’t take them into account.
In order to fight this growing problem we have to spend more and more time at places like the gym or even just going out for a walk. In the end the time you save by taking your car to lunch instead of walking there is used up later by spending time exercising. This is one of those situations where it appears to have a benefit but in the end when you look at the big picture it does not.
