You might not have heard the term 'technostress', but you might be familiar with its symptoms. People experience it when they struggle to adapt to new technologies in a healthy way. https://www.techdonut.co.uk/blog/14/12/does-technology-reduce-stress-or-cause-it

Technology has brought impressive benefits to both individuals and businesses. It’s created entire industries and enabled us to work in new ways. Yet it’s becoming harder to ignore the downsides. According to some research, heavy use of computers and cell phones can be linked to increased stress, sleep disorders and even depressive symptoms in young adults.

I think modern technology both reduces and increases stress. Having advanced technology can help us in many aspects of our life, like decreasing the amount of time on a project. But since the amount of time has been shortened, we'll often be expected to pick up another project to complete in that time previously saved. It's like moving twice as fast.

I used to be a total technology addict. I was always attached to my cellphone and on the computer. That side of my life totally changed after going two months without a cell or computer. My life became less stressful and I realized I could function just as well without technology.

According to the Australian Psychological Society’s 2014 survey of stress and wellbeing, Australians have reported levels of stress lower in 2013, but still higher than the previous two years. In addition, several years’ worth of findings show young adults between 18 and 35 report significantly high levels of stress compared to other age brackets.

Modern technology reduces stress for the one who uses it but increases stress for the one who makes it. They need to outdo themselves and ocme up wth better products.

True. They need to keep coming up with new and innovative products.

It's not modern technology that increases stress but the processes surrounding the technology. Learning it can take a while especially for the older people. Then in turn, the younger people teaching them how to use them get super stressed because they don't get it. Lol.

It reduces labour but increases stress when it all goes wrong.

It increases stress if you don't have a big enough brain to figure out how to use it.

While modern communication has increased the ease of our life, it has also significantly increased the speed at which it moves. Exchanges that would take weeks by mail can now happen on the other side of the world in seconds or minutes.

Modern tech has gained such a presence in our lives that it’s easy to become addicted to social media and smartphone use to the point it starts impacting our relaxation and sleep. In turn, this causes even more stress to build up through the day, resulting in a cycle of stress accumulation.

We are constantly assaulted in our daily life with the bombardment of modern technology. It’s getting harder and harder to find someone without a smartphone, and the next generation will not remember a time when such technology wasn’t commonplace.
