Cause of Aches and Pains

If you have aches and pains you are certainly not alone....and if you'd be willing to give something UP to get rid of them you'd join a lot of others.  Recent research says nearly six in 10 of us would be willing to give up not only our favorite food (not Rebecca Wilde....she likes to eat way to much) but also our favorite TV show for a full year. 

Here's the crazy thing.....how we are getting hurt: Apparently the most common way we hurt ourselves involves zero physical activity.  You literally do it in your sleep . . .experts say it's because we don't have strong cores...which is why we get hurt other ways, too......

And......drum roll please........Here are other of 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.

It also found women are more likely to say they have daily aches and pains . . . 42% compared to just 28% of guys. Now, how is that fair? lol

Hate to say it but we apparently have to exercise more.  Stretching properly and strengthening our muscles and most-importantly our core.
