Admit it - your life has changed because of technology, but there are times when you don’t exactly know why.
Now more than ever before, you’re seeing all around you people whose lives have somehow become centered on technology and on the need to stay connected. And although you share the same sentiments, there are times when you would also like to understand this change better and more substantively. It’s not as if you’re content to just reap the benefits of, say, when you get to shop online. It also pays to have a little more understanding of what this is thing called technology that is suddenly reordering your priorities for you and re-shaping your entire life.
So, you ask: how is technology changing your life? Or, if it’s something that has already happened, how has it changed your life?
Top Ways that Technology Has Been Life-Changing
This time, you can count the ways yourself.
Way #1: Your ways to communicate have improved significantly.
Gone are the days when you used to wait for months on end just to be able to reach your loved ones. Gone are the days when men and women had to bear the agony of being away from each other, bearing the additional burden of not hearing from each other at all. Today, you have devices that are more than happy to speed up your communication process, and it doesn’t even matter what country they are in. One click, and the message is sent to your loved ones (heck, even your enemies) almost immediately.
Way #2: Your means for entertainment have changed, too.
There was a time when people needed to work extra hard to keep themselves and others entertained. And although there still are some people whose job it is to entertain others, there is a felt decrease in demand for person to person entertainment, primarily because your gadgets can now achieve your #entertainmentgoals for you. With just a click of a button, you can now listen to your favorite songs, watch your favorite movies, and even read your favorite books right from the comforts of your own handheld device.(And yes, online shops like Lazada and Zalora pretty much save the day, too.)
Way #3: The educational institutions have also been altered by technology.
Do you ever get the feeling that it’s quite tiring and burdensome to have to go to school all the time? Are you ever stressed by courses that do not stir anything in you, and teachers who fail to tap into your passions? Well, technology has changed all that, because today, even school has turned virtual. These days, you no longer have to physically be present in a physical classroom. You don’t have to enlist yourself in classes that do not appeal to you. All over the world, there are courses and degrees that you can take right from the convenience of your own home, and also at your own pace. There’s less pressure, but more passion. It’s the kind of combination that you’ve been waiting for all this time.
True enough, technology has altered everybody’s lifestyle. How about you? What other ways can you add to the list?
