We have slipped our feet into god’s shoes at the very moment we invented machines. It was something we created, something under our control. Both our past and present has been depended on machines and now we’ve set our minds to build a glorious future for ourselves with their help. New devices born of brilliant ideas found their place in our lives and helped us in our daily life, business etc. But still the over bearing shadow of some shortcomings, try to pale these bright aspects of machines.
What you don’t believe it? Well, then let’s cut to the chase. It’s already been proven that excessive use of machines makes us unhealthy, and unfortunately we are compelled by our fast evolving society to take the help of devices at every step in our life. Give it a thought, and you’ll find yourself dug in like a tick to devices every day, all day. We are so eager to make our lives more hospitable with the help of our precious devices that, we forget the golden rule that is, to lead a good life one needs a healthy body. But thanks to god that tech entrepreneurs haven’t missed it like us; otherwise I couldn’t even imagine how dread full our lives would become.
In this month’s CES in Las Vegas, brilliant minds of our society came to us bearing gifts of health. They offered us various kinds of watches, armbands, key fobs, and other gadgets designed and dedicated to track our daily activity, sleep, and other habits as well. We all have envied those people who are maintaining a good diet and managing time for work out. But now, these devices are giving us a fair chance to change all that at once.
