ecoTrain QOTW s7.9: Which technologies have had a positive influence on your life?
Hello everyone Ecotrein community, congratulations, it is a pleasure to greet you and participate in this dynamic focused on the magic of gratitude. My favorite topic for some time and what I am focused on now, because too much bad news is heard everywhere for us to also flood the platform of negativity, no sir, as I always say, the good is the majority but makes less noise. Let's make noise of the good things, of the positive, of the hopeful.....
At this time of my life, I am oriented towards the natural, seeking to be more and more free. But, as long as we are immersed in the system, we can use its tools to our advantage. There are technologies that make our lives easier and more comfortable, I think it is the most sensible thing to look for ways to adapt them to us and take advantage of them.
Talking about the countless advantages of the Internet would take us several posts. In fact, now in pandemic times, technology has become more essential than ever, especially when it comes to connecting and eliminating frontiers.
But, in this opportunity I would like to refer to reading, through electronic devices. In my case I must say that I prefer the feeling of a physical book, to feel its smell, to turn the corner of the last page read, yes, I am traditional. However, some time ago I discovered eReaders and today they are a super useful tool in my life that besides entertainment has brought me happiness, because reading takes us to infinite worlds and scenarios. It has also helped me to get my 11 year old daughter to leave the cell phone for a while. We gave her an e-reader and to our surprise, she has been hooked reading the entire Harry Potter saga with enthusiasm.
It has been a great happiness for me to see my little girl enter the world of reading, because previously she was not enthusiastic about it. Perhaps for the new generations these devices are ideal to show them what is beyond the social networks and all the magical world they were missing.
It is undeniable that an e-reader has many advantages, ranging from economical to sustainable and ecological. Other positive contributions that e-readers have provided me with:
My reunion with reading: In my adolescence I was always an avid reader, however with the passage of time and the advances of the Internet and social networks, I was losing the habit. The Ereader has reconciled me with this nourishing activity.
The battery can last more than a month: Unlike cell phones, the consumption of these batteries is quite low, so it is not a concern to have to be charging every time.
It does not weigh anything, so I can carry it in my bag everywhere without it being a nuisance.
Not to mention the practicality when traveling and wanting to take our favorite book collection with us. Because it will never be the same to read on the phone or on the computer, because our eyesight suffers a lot in the process.
That is why I have chosen for this post the Ereaders as a technological tool that has positively influenced my life and my daughter's life.
I invite you all to participate in this initiative, in the week of gratitude and magic.
