I think modern technology is making us lazy because we are spend more than half a day on our electronics and that is 20 mins. more than a average night's sleep.

Technology is not only limited to that at our house. Technology is everything we have made around us, Technology as such is in no position to make us lazy. Our interpretation and hence usage of technology is what makes us lazy

Technology has a wider perspective towards health rather than just Laziness. Technology has provided us with information that we can use to improve our health. For starters it makes us AWARE about everything good and bad around us and health is a huge topic in this. It has connected the common people to the experts in the field and helped them simplify exercises, health routines, Diets etc.

Secondly brilliant technological inventions such as Health Tracking Watches, Mobile Apps, Fitness Aid Devices etc. have helped all those who want to be fit, to improve in the process. Technology has enabled us to monitor our own body and and judge our capabilities making the "Getting Fit" process way lot easier and accurate. It has enabled us to decide what is best for ourselves at an individual level and is doing a great job.

It is not technology that makes us lazy. Laziness is a state of mind, not state of the art development.
