I'm pretty sure I am.
Always having spellcheck, Google (and probably, to an extent, Google Maps/Citymapper) available has pretty much ruined me.
I used to be a wedding singer and I had to drive all over the uk to go to gigs when there was no such thing as satnav. And I managed fine and I think i had much better awareness of my location as a result.now, I can't even drive to the other side of town without my garmin lady telling me when to turn left etc. Spoiled!
I'm practically a sloth. it's only because I have impossibly high and unattainable standards that I even manage to get out of bed each day (today I got out of bed at 9.05 e.g.) never mind actually doing anything with my body or brain.
I'm almost incapable of reading books anymore, I know that much.
This could be because of depression I guess but also I find I'm so easily distracted these days.
I've also got a terrible attention span now. I can barely sit and watch something without checking my phone/internet every now and again. So annoying.
Same with reading, my mind wanders every few lines as I think of something else.
but i started out from a pretty lazy start point, so even getting less lazy doesn't look like much
