Thanks to the advance in the Internet and technology, our life has altered considerably, especially the way we allocate leisure time. This changing has both advantages and disadvantages. However, I believe that it will bring humans to more drawbacks than its benefits. In this essay, I will point out the reasons to support my idea.
First, due to the development in the Internet, people now can have various ways to spend their free time. They can watch movies, read books or play games within a click. The Internet helps humans to access to the world quickly in order to inform more information around their life. Moreover, with the advances in Wi-Fi, they can talk to their friends whenever and wherever they are. By using the Internet to relax, they will have a quick refreshment after a long day of work or study. However, every coin has two sides. Although it has a considerable number of advantages, it still brings to humans a huge number of drawbacks.
By spending much times on smartphones and Internet, people will have less time to participate in physical and outdoor activities. For example, while we are using smartphones to surf Facebook, we tend to eat more. It will lead to obesity and other health problems. Furthermore, using the Internet too much also causes to some eyesight problems because the light from smartphones and other modern devices are not good for our eyes. Besides, with the appearing of the Internet, more and more online crime occurs including violent scenes and cyberbullying. It will have a bad result in humans mental health such as stress, depression or other problems related to mental illness, etc.
To conclude, there are numerous of benefits that new technologies bring to us. However, the disadvantages still outweigh the benefits due to the way we use it in our spare time. I think that people should have a logical spending to have a good health.
