Today, we live in a modern era where we can find new technologies are always being updated each day. For an instance, a brand of smartphone that always presents the latest innovations of its features. It helps people with super complex necessity to fulfill the demands of their works. But I do realize that when something hit massively, it will take some effects to an existence.
Let me talk about the situation in my country! I try to describe what is happening here lately :)
As you know, my country is a developing country that is still conducting infrastructure development to reach some goals. One of the main problems here is the inequality population which causes metropolitan cities to become densely populated. Thus, it makes another problem; traffic jam. Traffic jam always occur almost everyday particularly in the morning at 06.00-09.00 AM and in the evening at 04.00-07.00 PM due to people's activities to go and back from their office/schools. Traffic jam can lead people to become stress because it wastes much time on the road and it can be a trigger to a non optimal performance. What is the cause of traffic jam? Yup, people who prefer riding their own vehicles to using the public transportation. So it creates a large number of vehicles while the road width is insufficient. ((To be honest, if I tell everything here it will be complex)).
Then comes the start up of online transportation in order to facilitate people. It similar to Uber in some countries (Uber is also available here as well, but this month its shares have been purchased). They become popular in these 3 years lately. Here I want to focus on the most popular start up here because I'm the one of the customer lol. Firstly, it just offered a bike/car ride, but nowadays it has around 15 service features that can be ordered by online. You can order food, send documents/goods, order special beauty services like massage, glam, order medicine, tickets, pay your bills, purchase the balance online, and so on. It is so simply practice that helps us who are busy with our works and prefer to use all of these services by ordering online. Yes, this start up also cooperate with the other companies and create some links as it can be drawn as a spider web because I don't understand how it works! So complicated. Technology really help our works become easier as same as it harm people in the same time.
I do my observation to myself and others which end up with the results that people are becoming lazy. Yeah, lazy. L-a-z-y. If they want only to buy 1-2 goods/food they just need to check their mobile and choose what they want to buy and click "order". Then they have to wait for several minutes until their package delivered to their place. It actually doesn't a matter if they are busy and don't have enough time. But... some of them do that in their spare time ;) As it become a new habitual, it could lead into a health problem next in the future if they keep doing it gradually. My experience for almost 3 years become a loyal customer of its online application is.... I become lazy to walk! It is so simple because I just need to sit down nicely and wait for the driver to pick me up and drive me to the place I want. When I am in the building, I prefer using elevator/hoist to the upper floor. What is the effect I get now? Well, I am easily tired when walking or jogging. I can feel my heart beats quite fast than the normal in the rest time. But no worries, I myself am trying to do exercise even though just once per week!
My conclusion is we should be balance in practicing modern life style and healthy life style to reduce the health risk problem. The health problem is the manifestation for a long term, so the effect will not be seen just in a month, 2 months, etc. SO, KEEP EXERCISING!!
