Do you notice the urgency of city life? Every vehicle wants to be faster than the other. Vehicles want to beat the traffic signals from every direction and the pedestrians want to get the better of the vehicles too. With the growing technological innovation, man is becoming more and more stressed.
There is a psychological condition called ‘techno stress’. It is the stress due to accumulation of technology. Do you get restless while waiting for the computer to start? Do you feel annoyed within minutes if people do not reply to your post or message? Do you feel the urge to check your phone every few minutes? If the answer is yes to even some of the questions, then i am afraid i have a bad news for you. You are suffering from ‘techno stress’. You have started thinking like a machine. 90 % of all technological innovation has happened in the last 50 years of mankind. We are actually living in a technological golden age. Technology should make our lives easier and more convenient but, we are getting controlled by the technology. We must remember that the man made the technology not the other way round. Sustained techno stress can have serious health complications such as anxiety, high blood pressure and depression. We should learn to ‘sign out’ from the virtual world, leave your phone , go for a walk, spend time with your family and friends, have a hobby, these simple things can help us get rid of this stress. Let us use technology to improve our lives not ruin it. Try it once i am sure you will feel more relaxed and stress free. Let the man control the technology not the technology control the man!
