Technology: Friend/Foe | Get unplugged from technology

Yes, Technology- they are everywhere. They can be seen in theatres, malls, streets, office, banks, etc. They can be found wandering in the streets of big cities and small villages alike. You too know the ones who can’t function without a use from smart gadgets. Oh yes, it’s the world.

Technology refers to the practical application of scientific knowledge for a particular purpose. You can do anything virtually with your smart phone, tablet, or computer. From seeing movies, ordering food, playing games, to working on programs, education everything is the technology. And this list is endless.

Technology is a boon as long as it is our slave. It’s when we let it become a master, that it becomes a bane.

Technology is getting encroached in our lives modifieing and making it luxurious. Sometimes, it could be a boon like our best friend. Either times, it could be a bane like a worst enemy. That’d literally steal our precious time.

We basically look like a statue, perhaps, seeing at a unearthly gadget for long hours just for entertainment, chatting, or something else. It’s a bit muddle-headed too – a fact which I personally attest. Moreover, our lives have become entirely dependent on it.

Conversely, it had lead to depletion of resources, social alienation, mental disorders, cyber-crime, desolation of time and what else!

You, may think that I’m opposing technology. No, in fact it is a miracle to write a blog post and spread it to world in snaps of time having different people reading and liking it.

Majorly, it is also used for online-business, industries, websites and so forth. It broadens our knowledge and makes learning fun with various resources.

We can communicate without language barriers, in social media, to anyone at any corner of the Earth, just by texting. The have changed our lives cushy with extraordinary features.

However, people have become addicted to technology and it can be very dangerous. It is very easy to get in but not as easy to get out.

We can allocate work time where you need gadgets. Spend you leisure time by reading books, learning new hobbies, having picnics, and more.

Simply turn off the social media notifications which could distract and make you see it again and again. Technology is a gift when you use it in a good way. In addition, it can be a curse which could erase your precious time!

So, a day for unplugging and recharging, consider making it a montly/weekly habit rather than once a year. Pick one day per week and unplug from computers and phones and the hustle and bustle of the internet. Relish the world of living, breathing human beings and rediscover what has been missing from your life.
