    "In our daily life" vs "in our daily lives"

    A student just asked me what's the difference between "in our daily life" and "in our daily liVeS"... Both sound usable to me... and I can't 'feel' a difference between the two... is there a difference? Help!

    Re: "In our daily life" vs "in our daily lives"

    I've heard both used interchangeably. Is it just a matter of plural?

    Daruma, please use correct capitalisation and punctuation.
