Re: Technology affecting mental health

The way i see it we've been using things to solve our problems since before we looked anything like we do today, so in some senses technology has been evolving since before humans evolved. Which is kinda cool Smiley Happy But also i doubt any of our ancestors ever encountered anything quite as amazingly advanced as a smartphone.

Re: Technology affecting mental health

I think we've all had the oppurtunity to answer the first question... so here is the next one. 

 

Do you think technology affects your physical health positively or negatively?

Both and ultimately I think it depends on how you choose to use it. And part of choosing is actually noticing how and -how often- you use it.

Both!

 

Positively:

 

Excersise apps on my phone or fitbit that motivate me to keep going

Sleep apps that I use to aid my sleep 

I use 'Swell Cams' to check the surf and if its worth going out 

Sometimes when I download new music I want to walk everywhere so I can listen to it through headphones Smiley Tongue

 

 

Negatively:

I can sometimes spend too much time online in one go, like a lot of people I'll sit down and find I've been on my laptop for ages. 

During my internet or netflix binge sessions I can  eat pretty bad, but I guess its ok as a treat Smiley Happy

I reckon it's both actually. I  think it's always had positive and negative effects but they've just changed form over time. Kids these days have modern technology at their fingertips, blaring Peppa Pig from a tablet while I had to wait for the internet connection dial up so I could see an image.
