Okay, so let’s take a look at this. You wake up one morning and discover that all the electronics and computers around the house – no around the world suddenly disappear!
First of all you wake up late, because your alarm doesn’t exist. You go to the bathroom to get ready for your day and you’re frustrated because there is no power supply to enable you see what you’re doing. You crave a cup of hot coffee and the electric kettle or burner is nowhere to be found.
The early breaking news or messages you listen to every morning no longer comes up and you have a feeling your day is already messed up.
You take your bag ready to head out and discover there are no cars or buses, or any means of transportation and you groan in frustration as you begin a long walk to school or work.
Your day without technology is already on a rough start!
Living without it will be totally impossible as this has become every day’s application as more and more people are gaining knowledge on how to make use of the communication tools to improve their ways of living and staying informed on the current technology to avoid being left behind.
Worldwide, 4.66 billion people use the internet and benefit from it tremendously. Although most people acknowledge that they can physically survive without it, they also say that going a day without it would be highly inconvenient.
Truthfully, going days without having to depend on modern technology has its advantages but its downsides could have drastic effects. You could miss an important or urgent call. A lot of opportunities could also be missed and if you’re hardly ever outdoors, you will be extremely bored.
Its advantages however, enables you spend quality time with family and friends. Staying away from online games or movies and chatting on social media for experience sharing with loved ones can be achievable. You can engage in refreshing activities and have lots of fun.
Thankfully, technology is everywhere. So we wouldn’t have to go a day without cell phones, social media and tech gadgets- unless we choose to. If we never even had technology, the world would be drastically different.
Jobs that are super culturally relevant today, like being a Youtuber or social media influencer, wouldn’t exist. We use tech in almost every part of our lives; we use it in our free time, for school, for work and life as we know it would be fundamentally different without it.
