Tired, heavy legs at the end of the day are the result of sitting at a desk, or standing for long periods of time. Find out how to avoid tiredness.
Why do we get heavy, tired legs?
The feeling of having heavy or painful legs is caused primarily by circulatory problems. Lack of movement and an increase in body weight can cause blood stagnation in the limbs. That's why sitting for a long time without any muscle activity to act as a pump, can slow circulation in the legs. Especially in areas like the feet and ankles.
How can I get relief for tired legs?
Avoid anything that interferes with the return blood flow like sitting for a long time, too tight clothes, a very hot bath. Instead, walking, swimming and cycling are recommended activities to improve blood circulation. At night, it's best to sleep with your legs slightly raised and extend them as often as possible.
