Here are 25 negative effects technology can have: Isolation Social isolation is characterized by a lack of contact with other people in normal daily living, such as, the workplace, with friends and in social activities.
We isolate ourselves by walking around in our own little world, listening to our iPods or staring at the screen of the latest mobile device even when we are around other people.
Studies have shown that people who are socially isolated will live shorter lives. Lack of Social Skills The use of online social media outlets causes us to meet face-to-face with much less frequency resulting in a lack of much needed social skills.
We lose the ability to read body language and social cues in other people. Obesity The more time people are spending engrossed in video games, talking to friends online and watching funny cat videos on YouTube, they are spending less time being active or exercising.
Also the likelihood of mindlessly eating unhealthy food increases as people are hypnotized by the latest episode of Honey Boo Boo. Depression Technology creates the perfect recipe for depression with the lack of human contact, overeating and lack of exercise.
Poor Sleep Habits Some of the negative effects of technology can be linked to the effect it has on sleep habits. We get sucked into online activities that keep us up too late and the constant stream of information can make it difficult to turn off our brains.
Also, the ambient glow from screens can affect the release of melatonin, the sleep chemical. Keeping technology out of the bedroom would be a very healthy habit to acquire. Pollution With the rapid-changing world of electronics and technology, the turnover rate for upgrades is staggering.
This constant stream of out with the old, in with the new is adding to the levels of toxicity in our air and land. E-waste is not always disposed of properly, causing deadly chemicals to leach into the ground.
Plants that manufacture the electronics are emitting toxic fumes into the air. Plus there is little to no regulations on the disposal of personal E-waste. Increased Bullying The use of technology has caused an increase in bullying and escalated the degree of severity.
Kids are no longer able to escape their tormentors once they reach the safety of their own homes.
The increase in cyber-bullying has also led to an increase in teen suicides. Lack of Privacy The internet has stripped the world of privacy. Long gone are the days of having an unlisted telephone number and staying offline to keep your information safe from prying eyes.
For those with more sinister intentions, the use of phishing, viruses and hacking helps to find any information they wish to obtain.
Plus, people have no sense of privacy online. Higher Level of Deceit On the flip side of having no privacy, people use the internet to deceive others. By creating a few false profiles, people are able to pretend to be whomever they want.
Warped Sense of Reality Using the internet as an escape from real life is very easy to do. However, online you are a freaking rock star!"You’ve just found the most powerful personal growth and mind development tool on earth Holosync ® audio technology!
