Believe it or not, the most common way we injure ourselves has nothing to do with physical activity. It’s because of something you do in your sleep!
41% of Americans sometimes have aches and pains from sleeping in a weird position, according to a new survey. Here are the top 10 things that make us feel achy:
1. Sleeping in the wrong position.
2. Doing laundry.
3. Heavy lifting.
4. Yard work or mowing the lawn.
5. Carrying groceries.
6. Sitting for too long.
7. Lifting or carrying your kids.
8. Sports-related injuries.
9. Injuries from working out.
10. Using the stairs.
60% of people would be willing to give up their favorite food and TV show in exchange for the elimination of their aches and pains. As difficult as that would be, I think it’s totally worth it!
Additionally, the survey found women are more likely to say they have daily aches and pains (42% compared to just 28% of guys).
