What has actually changed / influenced in the past 5 years ??

Ever bothered, what has changed your life style, behaviours over the past 5 years ?

With new developing countries changing the world order by atleast 2025 or even sooner, what would you expect to change more in life style ??

Because developed nations would like to be always one step ahead than the recently developed countries, the inventions and discoveries from the developed could impact the world !!


Will there be a life span increase, less sleep, more diseases, new religions, or what else ?? I'm concerned as I will be in mid 40's by 2025.

Re: What has actually changed / influenced in the past 5 years ??

There is a tendency to answer such questions with a book. But here's my take in a few lines.

The west is declining the east is rising. Pressures to become ever more efficient and completive spill over into our life-styles in the form of stress and the blurring of work and leisure time. Add to this the fact that the west is essentially at war with terrorism and nowhere is guaranteed safe anymore.

We'll live longer but enjoy it less...
