Technology and Its Negative Impact on Human
In today’s life, technologies are rapidly growing day by day. Today’s life is like a race. People, who can adapt new technologies very fast, can go ahead in their lives. Otherwise, they would always be behind in life race. People can’t imagine their life without technologies, and various technologies are helping people to live their life with more luxury.

To keep healthy mind, we need to use our mind by trying to remember things and doing complicated problems ourselves. It also makes us intelligent, but almost everything, we need, can be found on Google and other websites. People simply go to online and find out what they need. For example, some students go to internet to do their homework and other assignments. Online sites help students to do assignments without reading entire chapters and books, and they even do not use their mind and depend on internet. Sometime, they put phones beneath the desk to cheat during exam time. Those technologies provide short term benefits for people, but people would be unable to perform basic tasks and operations in the future.
