Is Technology making us lazy?

Is Technology making us lazy? Technology is described as being the making of, usage, or adjustment of pre-existing methods/tools, crafts, solutions, or performing a specific function. Hence, it is the reason why we are constantly modifying existing tools and thinking of new solutions arising from ideas and previous knowledge. Technology has enabled us to be successful and has hindered us in appreciating the little things in life. However, I’ve noticed at the turn of the 20th century, how reliant we are on our electronic devices and other pieces of technology that we use. Moreover, after further research and research, I’ve come up with the question, which asks: Is Technology making us lazy?

Positives of Technology

-Technology has helped us in a number of ways. Technology has helped us to create medication that could possibly cure some diseases such as cancer, AIDS, and Lyme’s disease.

- Technology has helped us to expand our knowledge and our vocabulary.

-Technology has helped us to navigate easier through the streets with the inventions of cars, trains, and buses.

-Technology has helped us to connect with others that can’t hear or speak by the use of computers and cochlear implants.

-Technology has helped us to make methods of transferring money easier.

-Technology has provided us with clean water.

-Technology has provided us with a variety of different foods.

-Technology has helped us to cook food faster.

-Technology has helped us by entertaining us.

-Technology has created shelter, buildings, hotels, and resorts.

It is quite safe to say that technology has helped us a great. Our current way of life is based on technology and knowledge of past technology that has helped us to create new ideas to modify those inventions into making them better and more efficient for us. These inventions have had a lot of pros especially when it comes to medicine and treating current disease and illnesses. The pros of technology also has helped us with surviving and existing as human beings with the inventions of homes, machines to clean water, money development, provision of food, etc.

Negatives of Technology

-Technology has created weapons that some people use to kill others.

-Technology has really created nuclear warheads so, that we can destroy either.

-Technology has created greedy people to scam others and to steal identities.

-Technology has hindered our creative process and our inspiration to be more than what we are.

-Technology has created hairspray, pollution, and other things that have been slowly but surely eating away at the ozone layer, which is defending us from the deadly son.

-Technology has killed us such as plane crashes, car explosions, car accidents, etc.

-Technology has caused harm such as these new drugs and the department having to unshell them. Remember seeing those ads? If you have ever taken this and you are dead, in a coma, or seriously injured, you may be paid. Seriously, dead?

-Technology has created more molesters and people harming others in general, even children.

-Technology has caused us to be more exposed and for us to be more vulnerable to others.

-Technology has caused people to bullies others and for them to cause harm to themselves.

Although there have been many pros of technology there has also been cons of technology. Everything good has to have a bad side to it. The cons of technology are the sides that no one really thinks about until it privately affects them in a negative way. For example, when you see on television that someone has cancer, but you don’t act on it until someone you know and love has cancer. As a society, we seem to pay more attention, when someone we care about greatly is involved. Hopefully, the downsides of technology won’t continue much longer.


Yes, yes, yes, technology is making this creation in specific quite lazy. We have motorized scooters now that can get us from point A to point B, even if we can walk. We have dishwashers that clean dishes for us, instead of doing the dishes our self. We have grocery stores that we can visit to get meat and vegetables, instead of hunting ourselves and having our own garden. We are letting the movement of society direct us in our ways of lives. Not everyone goes along with society; there are some people left who do stick to old traditions. However, the bulk of society continues to adapt, learn, and recreate new inventions out of old inventions and ideas. As a society, we tend to get bored with doing the same thing over and over again; therefore, new things have to be created to keep us busy, keep us entertained, and to keep us going with the hustle and bustle of our life. for more articles click here…
