Introduction:

 The use of any computers, storage, networking
and other physical devices, infrastructure is IT
(Information technology) and it is a process to
create, method, secure, store and exchange all forms of electronic data. IT
encompasses on the commercial use of both computer equipment and telephony. Typically,
the use of IT is in the context of endeavor operations as opposed to individual
or entertainment technologies. The term information technology was coined by
the Harvard Business Review, in order to make a distinction between purpose-built machines
designed to perform a limited scope of functions and general-purpose computing
machines that could be automatic for various tasks. The field of IT is not new
for any one so many wide variety of changes we can see in the area of technology.

Isolation

The use of technology make human isolated like social isolation is characterize
by a lack of contact with other people in regular daily source of revenue, such
as friends, the workplace and in many social activities. Now so many are trying
to isolate them by walking around in their own little world of technology, staring
at the screen of the latest mobile device, listening to their iPods or even
when we are around other people then also no when can avoid the use of internet
and mobile phones. Due to the overuse of technology people isolate themselves
and that people who are socially isolated will live shorter lives.

Obesity

 

Most of the time so many people are spending lots of
time in video games, Net surfing, talking to their friends on video chat and
watching videos on YouTube, they are spending less time being active or
exercising. So this thing increases the risk of obesity. Most of the people are
facing the problem of obesity because they don’t have time to do exercise or
even they are only inside in one room and full time sitting is dangerous for
the health.

 

 

Depression

 

Technology is a creature for the perfect recipe of
depression with the lack of human contact, overeating and lack of exercise.
This is a reason the use of antidepressants are on the rise and the fault can’t
be completely dumped on the pharmaceutical companies. They aren’t carting
people into the doctor’s office and force feeding them the pills. There is
nothing wrong to say that depression is a real problem in this era, but some
people could cure their depression by living a healthier lifestyle.

 

Stress

Constantly being “plugged in” and “connected” causes
an extra layer of stress that wasn’t present before the overuse of technology.
