Fight work time fatigue with these 5 compression leg sleeves

Fatigue during work hours is a common but frustrating problem, whether you suffer from sleepiness or more physical exhaustion. Though there are many remedies to wake yourself up no matter the time of day, battling bodily fatigue can be a lot trickier. Wearing compression sleeves is one of the ways people, including professional athletes, help their bodies recover from long term stress and injuries, though they can be effective no matter who you are or what you do.

From knee support to calf protection, you can find compression accessories in a number of varieties. Each product will have its own strengths and weaknesses, so don’t be afraid to consider trying a few before you make a decision. In the end, the right fit will make a world of difference!

Since there are so many kinds of compression sleeves, braces, and socks, you’re bound to find something that works for your lifestyle. You can pick your perfect accessory by targeting a certain spot on your leg, or you can take the trial-and-error route until you find something that’s just right.

Wearing compression accessories can feel intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Many of these sleeves can be hidden beneath clothing if you prefer, though even more are available in subtle colors like black or white. You shouldn’t compromise your health and comfort for the sake of looks, but if you look hard enough you won’t have to settle when it comes to appearance, either. You can have both, trust us!

Planting a working kitchen garden is a wise investment. Not only does it mean you’ll have ready access to food in your own backyard, or back deck, or rooftop garden.

Upping your exercise routine? Grow superfoods to keep you boosted. You might not be harvesting bushels of beets overnight, but any one of these five gardening kits can get you started on the journey to a working kitchen garden.

There are lots of reasons to start your own kitchen garden these days. You might be spending more time at home, in your own kitchen, and cooking a lot more. And maybe you've noticed that decent produce is coming in at increasingly higher prices. While it's an up-front investment, starting your own kitchen garden is ultimately low-cost and (once you get your thumb nice and green) high-yield.
