4 Your Health: Daydreamers behind the wheel; millenials avoiding opioids

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- When it comes to managing chronic pain, millennials prefer lifestyle changes over opioids.

A new survey found millennials were half as likely as baby boomers to take opioids and one in five regret using addictive painkillers.

However, young adults were more likely to take opioids without a prescription and less likely to dispose of leftover pills safely.

Daydreaming drivers

A new study shows many people daydream when they drive.

Researchers at George Mason University found that during a simulated work commute people's minds wandered up to 70 percent of the time. They also noticed specific changes in brain patterns during these periods of inattention.

People's minds were more likely to wander on the second drive, or the commute home part of the simulation.
