36. Wearing earbuds
We all enjoy listening to music while waiting for the bus, during a jog or a workout, or when we need some alone time with our thoughts. You’d be surprised to hear that most of us don’t use earbuds the way they were intended, but we’re using them upside down – which is the reason why we’re often frustrated with them.
The correct way to use earbuds – if you want to keep them steady in your ears – is to wrap them above the ear and then put them inside, opposite to the way we’re used to doing. Wrapping them around your ear and plunging them upside down will provide a better grip and ensure they don’t slip out while you’re jogging.
