So, we can say that our cell phones have helped us to make our life easier but with the advent of time, it has taken control of our lives.

In today’s world, there is a possibility that human being can live without food but not without the cell phones

For example, what is the first thing you do when you wake up?

Well, most of us would say that we check our social media accounts on our phones.

Most of the people remain glued to their cell phones.

Today I was travelling in the metro and there were 8 people sitting in front of me. I noticed that out of eight people six people were using their phones.

On the other day, I went to a  restaurant to meet a friend of mine.

More than 50% of people were using their phones rather than having a conversation.

Then I realized that nowadays people are living in the virtual world rather than the real world.

I am a 90’s kid and during my childhood and adolescence phase, I use to go out and do a lot of outdoor sports activities but now the kids are interested in playing online games rather than outdoor games.

Outdoor games are the best form of physical activities.

Sports activities improve our hand eyes coordination, improves blood flow in our body, helps us to lose extra calories from our body.
