Sitting is the new smoking when it comes to health problems. There are shout-outs everywhere about technology taking a toll on our health and lifestyle, citing common effects like sleeplessness, weight gain, mental stress, etc.
But there are two sides to every coin. While there is no denying the negative impacts of technology, as with many things in life, moderation is key.
Karen Reed explains in her article, “8 Ways Technology Is Improving Your Health”, that technology doesn’t need to be written off. Using it in the right ways can actually improve both our lives and our health.
Think about recording medical information in real time to assist with accurate diagnosis and right treatment for patients, or the Pacemaker that supports the functioning of heart. Apps like Fitbit and Google Health greatly aid in tracking activity and promoting a healthy lifestyle.

8 Ways Technology Is Improving Your Health
By Karen Reed
We hear all the time about how technology is bad for us. Since the introduction of computers. Even people working on App Development have the same issues, we spend more time sitting at a desk than moving around at work. We have created this sedentary lifestyle that is causing havoc in our overall life.
What if I were to tell you that technology has produced benefits? Would you believe me if I said that technology is good for your health?
Most of you wouldn’t look at first. Well, you may be able to think of a couple of ways that the computer has helped, but you are still stuck on all the negatives that ‘experts’ have shared in the past. The problem with the ‘experts’ is that they are only focused on the negatives. They haven’t looked at so many of the benefits.
So, that’s what we’ll do today. We’ll consider all the ways that technology improves our health. We’ll discuss just how it has boosted results in certain areas of healthcare and what it does for us daily.
