I think there is no need to worry about relying on technology. First of all, they are good helpers of us. Computers and other electronic gadgets make our lives easier, most of what used to require human labor is now completely automated. Secondly, that equipment saves people a lot of time and energy allowing them to do what they truly want.

At the same time there are those who think that technological advances make people lazier. If a person does not have to work at all, they we will just spend their time doing nothing or watching TV, or playing computer games. That is the way how people will become weak and stupid.

I cannot agree with the opinion mentioned above for a particular reason. Some people may indeed choose to be lazy, however, I do not think they would be the majority. Most people prefer staying active regardless of whether they have work or not. These people will get a perfect opportunity to do the things they love instead of doing what they do not like but have to do.

In conclusion, I would like to say that technological progress just gives people more options. What they choose to do with them is everyone’s personal business. Thus, technology is not the reason of people's laziness and weakness.


In conclusionI would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight, technology might seem to weaken people’s health and make them lazier but in actual fact it gives them more options. What one chooses to do with them is their personal business. Thus, technology is not the reason of people's laziness and weakness.
