Are you still depend on the sun to know the actual time? Exactly not, we use watch to know the time and every day they watch is updated. Like in the past time hand watch, the wall clock is very common but now it’s very rare even many houses don’t have it. Technology adds many features in one phone, the clock is one of them.

Now the young generation has digital watches in their hands which is not only used for showing time. That’s why now having a watch is totally restricted in any kind of exam Hall.
Good effects of technology in education
Another part of our lives is education. Now technology changes the process of learning dramatically. In the past time, we have depended only on books, newspapers, educational institutions and that was for a particular time. Now we can learn from anywhere, anytime by tutorial video, online article, news portal, newsletter, e-book, PDF file many much. It’s called e-learning. Really in the past time, the educational system was so hard and expensive. People bought many types of books, newspapers, go to the library, carried those in bags, made a special desk or room for books. But now we can keep thousands of books on our electronic device, that’s very easy and cheap. Any kind of information we don’t need to go to that place or read a typical book or newspaper. We can easily grab all information just go to search Engine type the keywords information come in front of us.
The effects of livelihood: The world is changing so rapidly. Technology fully changed the earning livelihood process also. There is much independent work in online life no need to do particular 8 hours of office work still people can earning a good amount. Freelancing is a very popular profession all over the world especially those who want to do independent work. Thousand of work and workplace we have now and the best part is there is no competitor, all are a colleague. Every year millions of people earn their bread and butter from online work. Obviously this technology is like a blessing people can earn even in Mobile which is fully legitimate with every available feature.
Online shopping is now very common everywhere because people don’t waste their single second for roaming in the market. They choose it to concretion their lives with a busy schedule. That opened a new door for e-commerce where people can buy anything from any area in the world. Online transaction is so easy and safe method for any kind of money transaction and time-saving also.

Some negative effects of technology
Technology has some bad effects also like the most useful electronic device mobile, the laptop is usually attached to the human body. The radiation of this device can create many health deceases. Eyes and ears are most affected by this problem specially the children. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), long-time use of computers can lead to digital eye strain. For this AOA recommended to 20-20-20 rule. After working every 20 minutes take a break 20 seconds and see something which is 20 feet away from you. I personally like to see a green scenario because watching green give peace in our mind.
Think about how many times you are using a mobile. Almost 24/7. Mobile is our most usable device in our life. Every moment the use of mobile creates Musculoskeletal problems because in the time of using mobile we don’t have any sense of what is our body position. This position puts a lot of stress on your neck, shoulders, and spine.
The extra use of technology is the addiction
Now Most of the young generation are addicted to this addiction. They are wasting their time playing unusual games, visiting porn sites, bullying and blackmailing others on social sites, doing crimes. Researchers say now Children use television, phone, video games, tech toys mostly from any other technology product. This thing distracted them from nature and physical playing and add violence to their character.
Some negative effects of technology: Many are waking full night for online life that hampered their health and creates many health issues. Sleep at least 6 hours per day. But technology in the bedroom hampered sleep time so much. Most people are using mobile exactly before sleeping time. After light off full blue light creates bad effects on eyes directly. Both of these effects can make it harder to fall asleep and result in you being less alert in the morning. Try to avoid device in sleeping time, at least after light off and keep distance them from the body due to radiation.
Living in the next door
People have knowledge about the moon but they don’t know who is living in the next door. They are becoming self-centered. The cordiality is decreasing day by day. The depression and anxiety is a common problem in a new generation. The researchers claim those who are connected most time in social media they are less social in real life. If you also fill this problem, then take a break from social life and make a difference. But still, Technology is trying to solve it’s all flaw. Above all technology is power not punishment. The effects of technology are positive as well as negative. Awareness can be used in a positive way. Likewise, letting go of the negative aspects.
