As man continues in his journey in advancement, things are becoming easier and life is becoming more comfortable. Most of the usual workload is being directed to robots and other technological discoveries.
In the past man had to toil many hours working hard on the unforgiving land. This was often under a blazing sun and other difficult conditions. Despite the hard work, mankind was still fully dependent on weather for him to have any success from his labor. Man could plant the crops but nature had to provide the rain.
As times went by, man gradually discovered ways of conserving and harnessing water such that he would not have to be very dependent on weather cycles. He discovered ways of growing his crops during odd seasons and he could even turn an arid land into a productive haven.
His innovation also included the invention and creation of tools and implements that made his work easier. From the days of using simple sticks to dig, man invented the hoe and with this discovery he gradually evolved until he invented the tractors and other farming machines.
Apart from evolving in his farming skills and inventing farming machinery, man also found alternative ways of making a living. Man discovered arts, commerce, medicine, and numerous other ways of making a living. The lands were left to a few farmers who used technology to produce all that the population needed while the others went off to make a living in other ways.
Today the majority of the people work in huge complexes that house offices where people work. In great contrast to how the ancient man worked, today’s man works while sitting. The idea of someone working while seated would have been unthinkable a few hundred years ago. Today, the person who works while sited is likely to earn much more money than the person who works toiling out in the harsh environments.
With work becoming easier, the body has been relieved of having to engage in strenuous activities. Although we do much less in terms of physical exertion, we are able to provide much more food than what our fathers produced engaging in back breaking jobs.
Due to the plentiful supply of food and the people being able to work in jobs that pay very well, there is much more food available and the people can afford it. People can eat all kinds of their favorite foods at their leisure. As people eat more and do less vigorous tasks, they are increasingly gaining excessive weight.
Obesity or the state of being overweight is a major global issue that has multiple dire consequences for the individual. As such, many people are now taking active measures to ensure that they maintain healthy weight. This is not easy with their modern lifestyles.
Many people are having to enroll in gyms to work out and burn fat while many are opting to dieting to control their food intake. Some people are turning to the use of technology for weight management where they use calorie counter watches to manage their calorie intake.
