Compared with the past several decades, current lifestyle has changed a lot due to the development of science and technology. Despite some people may argue that it also leads to some negative effects, such as environmental pollution or more pressure, yet, in my opinion, life today is still more comfortable and easier than the past, since it brings more pros than cons in the following aspects.
Firstly, Internet brings more conveniences to our life, which breaks away from conventional ways in different fields. For one thing, people can communicate with each other more freely, instead of merely sticking to face to face talk in reality. It is not only beneficial to keep harmony relationship with each other but also improve the efficiency of communication to some degree. For another, various kinds of information and stuff online contribute to building easier and more convenient lifestyle. People can obtain almost everything they want online, such as searching for information, studying, or shopping, which leaves out the trouble of going outside and walking through the crowd.
Additionally, the improvement of transportation, involving multiple kinds of transportation, such as buses, trains and even airplanes, they not only improve efficiency of travel, which saves much more time within the same distance, but also ameliorate service mechanism in order to provide passengers more comfortable environment during their travel. Meanwhile, compared with the period when our grandparents were children, lower expenses attract more people to enjoy advantages brought by current relatively well-developed transportation.
Admittedly, with the increase of life pace, people nowadays are struggling from more pressure in order to pursue better physical life as they attach more importance to their work, and accordingly have less time accompany with their families. However, more entertainment
resources, like bars, playgrounds or gyms, come out, which provide workers with more opportunities to relieve pressure and relax themselves. Moreover, as for those who cannot cope with stress by themselves, psychologists are always ready to help them. And people are active to find tradeoff between pressure and life in the feedback.
Overall, though we cannot ignore the negative influences in life today, we still need to be optimistic and positive enough to enjoy the better living standards due to the remarkably economic increase and the development of technology.
