11 Things Your Body Is Doing Without You Even Knowing It

You might think you know what's going on in your body at any given time of the day, but there's a lot your body works on without your knowing. From general maintenance to prepping for future challenges, your body is constantly working. Find out what it's doing while you're not paying attention!

You might think the hard work is what happens in the gym, but in reality most of the effort goes into what happens afterward. The stress of any new physical activity, whether it’s picking up running or starting a job that requires more standing, sends a message to your body that it needs to up its game. While you might be a little sore at the beginning, that soreness goes away because your body is constantly adapting in response by building muscle and strengthening ligaments and tendons to make what you’re doing to easier and less likely to injure you.
