Re: Technology affecting mental health

@FootyFan26 that makes sense. I was thinking of the things making their own noises (like fans and stuff) Smiley Tongue

@Ben-RO you said it not me Cat LOL

Do you think technology affects your physical health positively or negatively?
Well, I'd say it has a second-hand negative effect on my physical health as I'm often sitting on my laptop or phone instead of exercising. But it's not really a bad thing.

Although technology (as in modern technology) does affect my physical health negatively because of bright screens and loudness. Bright screens- apparently everyone in my family is blind and requires their screens to be on the highest-possible brightness, even in the dark, to be able to see their screens. Which hurts my eyes.
And then the loudness, well I don't like loud sounds but apparently the movie industry doesn't care very much and insists on having quiet dialogue and loud action.

Positively? Well, I dunno. I'm not really sure physically BUT it certain does have physical positivities. They just don't spring to mind.

Depends on what type of tech you use and how you use it.  There are exercise machines and things to encourage physical activity and there's computers which you can only really use while sitting down.  Although there's technology now that makes it possible to stand up while at a desk.

Re: Technology affecting mental health

@FootyFan26 exercise machines are definitely a helpful resource for those that use them. Although stand-up desks don't sound very pleasant. (I get the importance of not sitting all the time but just standing still, no thanks Smiley Tongue I do enough of it at work and my feet die each night.)
