Modern life is easier or complicated. Discuss?
A style of art, literature, music, and more that reject the traditionally accepted or sanctioned forms and emphasize individual experimentation and sensibility is known as modern life. Modern life highly refers to era of technology. Generally, people say, “ The life they are living right now is quite comfortable and easy compare to old or traditional life”. In my point of view, modern life has made our life quite easy. However, it has affected our physical, mental health status, mutual communication skills and our environment.
In past, people were independent with good mental health status. However in todays society, people highly dependent on technology. Therefore, their minds are dull. For example, we prefer electronic devices to look up information instead of book, we use calculator to solve simple mathematical problem instead doing it ourselves. Similarly, we are addicted towards technologies and it’s features. A study found out that 70 % of global populations log into social media like Facebook, MySpace, twitter and instagram and more daily and about 40 % log in multiple times a day.
Furthermore, Modern life has increased our life span via the cure of different type of disease. However, it has made our body physical weak and dependent on the medicines. For example, in past if there was a headache then people use to sleep or wash their head with cold water. However, nowadays, we need to take medicine like Nimes, paracetamol.
In addition, when madam curie diagnosed cancer, she states, “ it was the side effect of radiation”. However, in today’s society we can hear about different types of cancerous diseases like skin caner, liver cirrhosis, and more. With advancement of our lifestyle, we also have affected our physical health. For example, treating our body against different types of rays like x-rays, gamma rays and electromagnetic radiation that can damage our organ and tissues.
