Some decades back , the modern day gadgets like computer, mobiles etc were non existent.
how did people manage their lives and entertainment then?
I still enjoy reading books myself. But listening to music has definitely been a choice of entertainment around the world for centuries. I think that's how people managed to still be entertained.
We would go to the others house and actually talk to them in person. When you broke down you would have to walk to the nearest gas station, so I guess that is one advantage to cell phones.
more decades back ,man stood to digest truth; the guts are non existent.
There was more reliance on writing as a form of communication and organization, and more focus on activities and sociability for entertainment.
Examples: people wrote letters and memoranda much more; and entertained themselves with games (chess, checker, go, all manner of board game) and by interacting with others (socials, cocktail parties, dances, amateur athletics.)
Of course, the time, place and social stratum matter a great deal in terms of what people actually did, but these are a few indicative instances.
We talked with one another and laughed. We did things together...like go to the park and play ball, swim, or walk. We went to the library! We made plans and kept them. We used a calendar or a piece of paper to remind ourselves of things.
You don't miss what you never had. Of course it'd be a different matter altogether if these gadgets and technologies were taken away from us now. They become embedded into our lives and people start thinking differently as a result of them.
Reading, conversation, going to public talks. More importantly, many people played musical instruments or sang, and more people danced than now. I think we've lost a lot because we watch TV or sit at computers for entertainment. Doing is much better. Of course, HubPages is a bit different - I'm not just reading, I'm writing!
