Yes, I think it is on the increase; but I don’t think this is anything new. It’s been going on for decades and Society seems to be more accepting of it. But then … there is a great deal more of Society that is out of work and these (as some might say) are a part of the problem.<br />
I’m not sure where fitness comes into what you are asking; unless if my interpretation of the word is not right? :-)<br />
Yes. We have technology to do everything for us. It cleans, transports us, does our work, even pays our bills. We are so used to relying on technology that we've gotten lazy.
I asked the sloth up in the tree outside in the forest this very same question last year, and he answered me just today, coincidental?:) mebbe...answer was, factors are we all should eat what nature has made abundantly clear is the best for our particular species, veggies and fresh fruit anyone?
I don't feel it is on the rise. I think there are lazy people and active people... People who are motivated and others that are not! <br />
With spring and summer finally here, I think that laziness will decrease because you can't help but get out and enjoy some fun in the sun... I think that the fall and winter months definitely increase laziness and hibernation in many people!!
The sloth is a slow-moving mammal that lives in trees. Sloths spend most of their lives hanging upside-down from tree branches; they eat, sleep, mate, ...<br />
I don't get it....
