Yes, I definitely think so. For example, everyone has a mobile phone. You expect to be able to get hold op everyone whenever you call him. Some people even take their phone to bed, which means that you could call them at night. On top of that, everyone is involved into some kind of social network online, at least everyone is expected to have an e-mail. And because everyone knows that, sometimes people get upset because you don't answer them right away. Especially old people must be stressed out by modern society. Many countries already expect them to learn about online banking and online social security management, only to name two examples.
Yes, technology makes our lives more stressful, because people are now expected to work 24 hours, 7 days a week. People can never leave work at the office. When a client calls, they expect an answer right now, even if it is the middle of the night. People can never really relax.
Technology has turned us away from humanity and has forced us to congregate in smaller groups while enabling our inherent narcissism at the same time - the advent of social media being a peculiar case study. We are now finding ourselves reliant on technological advances as a crutch, without actually learning anything for ourselves.
Technology often claims to make things simpler, this is not the case though. It makes things more complex and difficult to learn and understand, it requires specialization and always having to keep up with the latest updates, upgrades and trends. It’s stressful to try and stay on top of all that, mentally and financially.
We have to learn more in schools that we ever have to before. That is just going to happen over time though. The real problem is how we are expected to produce so much more and do not get paid any more for it. It is really driving a gap between the rich and the poor.
Technology helps many people solve their problems, ask yourself if technology has helped you? Does it make things easy? Technology has evolved quickly and is changing the world as it goes. It relives stress on others that have no one to vent to so they look for ways to reduce that feeling.
For some people, technology does cause a lot of stress, but this is usually because they are unable to regulate themselves or have a healthy relationship with the technology they use. For most people, tech does not cause stress and is a way to relax or be more efficient in work.
