There are many entertainment devices that are available these days. In the years gone by, there were hardly two or three entertainment devices. The television, radio and some others were the only few kinds of entertainment devices that were available. These days, the television and the music system are some of the least used entertainment devices.
The internet, MP3 player, video games and other hand held devices are the maximum used devices. These devices are used much more than the other kinds of devices mainly because of the fact that they are much more portable than the other devices. Many people need to travel for their work and for various other reasons. So, when they are able to use their entertainment device when they are traveling, it gives them much more freedom and happiness. So, these entertainment devices that are portable are much more popular than the other devices that are available.
There are health problems that can be caused by these devices that are used commonly these days. The main health problem that can be caused by these devices is eye strain. The computer and other devices have bright screens and using them by looking at them for many hours will cause severe strain to the eyes. This is a major problem commonly faced by people. Other than the eye strain, the use of the hand held devices by a person will cause the person to suffer from stress syndrome in the fingers and the wrist.
The use of the hand held devices also require the person to bend over them. This can lead to various musculoskeletal problems where the person will have neck pain and even back pain. To overcome all these problems or to prevent these problems, the person should make sure that he or she uses these devices in moderation.
