Sitting all day? Try these lifesaving compression socks

Nobody enjoys long work hours, whether you get your ideas in a cubicle or at a desk in your living room. After sitting for a while your legs are likely to get stiff and maybe even sore, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Aside from taking regular breaks to walk for a few minutes, wearing compression socks is one way to combat leg fatigue and pain.

With a quick Amazon search, you’ll find an endless number of compression socks and sleeves to choose from. It’s easy to get overwhelmed—we get it—but we’ve done the searching and selecting so you don’t have to. These five compression socks are some of the best, but you’ll have to keep reading to find out why.

You don’t have to be diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis or varicose veins in order to wear compression socks. Nearly everyone can benefit from improved leg circulation while sitting, especially during long work hours. They have more than one benefit, too, so whatever the reason may be—don’t hesitate to give them a try. You can always try something different if you don’t feel comfortable, too, so it may be time for a shopping spree.

One great thing about compression socks is that most of them can fit in any shoes. You won’t need to worry about size or feel, so you can focus on how they work with (or hide beneath) your work outfit. After all, just because you’re taking care of your health doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care about your looks, too!
