Technology and exercise.

Hope you all had a great weekend! Today with the staggering growth of the internet more people are now web surfing. Does that mean that people are less incline to do physical activity? The extra time spent in front of a computer or tv can be used for physical exercise. This may affect younger kids more because they are exposed to video games and technology in school at a younger age. Instead of playing street hockey or sports, kids especially young adults are probably playing video games for hours and hours. It should be interesting to note that child obesity has been on the rise in the past 10 years according to medical organizations. The introduction of healthy food menus and banning of pop machines and junk food are signs of schools and governments trying to rectify this child obesity. Technology has played a big role in people spending less time doing things active. Hopefully people find a good balance of technology and exercise. Go out for a walk or a run! I'm sure it'll make you feel better.
