hello ;) ya, with the development of technology, we are supposed to be more relax and have more time to ourself as machines can work faster than us, humans.. But the problem is, we are too used to doing things using our own hands, such as sweeping or mopping or washing of clothes etc.. So when technology comes in, we have to learn how to use them, in the process, we slowed down and thus our things is like never ending.. Because there's is a change from our normal routine, that's y we will feel even more tired ;)

yeah.although machines can do many things instead of us,we have more other things to do which was caused by technology.such as watching TV ,surf the internet.we always spend much time surfing the internet,watching TV and stuff like that.if we don't do these things we should have more leisure time than before i think.in the far past,we have no TV and computer,we just go out to play so it seems we had much more leisure time than now.in fact we have more leisure time mowadays.do you think so ?

yeah, downaalice, to ple now, watching tv and surfing the net is a kind of leisure to them.. But in reality, these ain't real leisure.. Real leisure means relaxing, going out with frenz, have some private moment, and donming things that we enjoy doing.. Agree?? hehe :)

hi downaalice! yes,as the science and technologe improve we are mostly free from the heavy work,but we even get less sleep than before,when i was a child,many people went to sleep earlier than nowadays.i think it is the most reason why we feel very busy and tired all day long.as the society develops people have to work harder than before.

I am less for leisure time now, after joined mylot. Previously quite having ample time for leisure. But seems it is OK because I can sharing with friends here what ever good ideas and thoughts. I think better make myself busy this way, more cyber knowledge learning.
