Our lives have come a long way from the Stone Age, and we are quite
thankful for the various technological advancements that have
brought us so far. We still have a long way to go, but the place we are
right now is quite commendable too.
However, is everything about our life right now quite perfect, just as
what we wanted? No! We have had to pay the price. And, we are
paying the price even right now as we speak. One of the most
important prices we have had to pay for our technological progress on
this planet is that we do not have time right now to take care of
ourselves. We are so worked up, literally, with the various devices we
have created that our own lives have taken a backseat.
We do not know where we are headed, and though the path ahead of
us looks quite bright and promising, there is always the nagging
apprehension that our bodies may not be up to that place when the
time comes. It is possible that our bodies will bail out on us even
before we reach that promised stage in humankind where everything
would be at its optimal best.
Our lives have become so busy right now that we do not find time to
take care of our bodies. We have become chair bound. Most of our
work life is spent sitting in a single room on a chair. Everything is
quite all right, but the lack of good exercise is surely taking its toll on
us. We have become chair bound, but that has almost debilitated us.
