How to Relieve Tired Legs

Tired or fatigued legs are one of the most common ailments today and this is how the legs are mainly due to poor circulation. This is one of the causes, but this is not the only one, as in addition to it we have others such as genetic factors, or our agegender, since women are more likely, but this does not mean that men do not suffer from tired legs.

The entire process of tired legs occurs when not enough blood reaches the blood vessels and hence the fact that there are also quite annoying pains, swelling, fluid retention in the ankles, but it must always be said that although in we can give some guidelines for its relief, if that pain is very strong and is accompanied by factors such as early age, rare tingling, redness, it is important that if we feel pain like this we go to the family doctor, since we may be facing a case of phlebitis and it is something much more severe.

For all this we will talk about what measures we can take to deal with these discomforts of tired legs, going from things that we can do in our day to day, such as what we should avoid above all if what we really want is that, to be as fresh as possible and take care of those tired legs.
It is curious how many things we can do, not only in terms of movements, but when it comes to eating because “we are what we eat” and if in addition to all this we can learn certain “tricks” that make it easier, better what better

From observing the control of our posture and looking through it, we can enjoy fantastic legs, although there will be things like a sedentary life that depends on many circumstances and the effort of each one in its improvement and relief. If we say this, it is because being overweight goes against our legs and makes them much more tired and resentful when bearing it.

In the above we can avoid many things, but in circumstances such as pregnancy or mood that also affect the health of the legs, we can only apply these healing home remedies and give ourselves a lot of patience and perseverance.

The basic pillar for lighter legs is sport and given the sedentary life it is not easy to start, but with 30 minutes to spare and here we have some guidelines to stretch those areas that resist us, the hamstrings are a set of muscles located in the back of the leg between the buttocks and the knee  that if we manage to stretch them will help us relieve tired legs.

Instructions to relieve tired legs

  1. Exercise or at least walk even half an hour a day. It doesn’t have to be running; walking at a moderate pace is enough. You do not have to be non-stop walking all day, because the remedy will be worse than the disease. What you have to do is exercise enough to activate circulation.
  2. Change your diet a bit if you overindulge in starches, sugars, and other foods that can clog those blood vessels or cause you to gain weight if you’re already over your ideal weight. So for that, drink more water and fiber and reduce salt, caffeine, alcohol and cigarettes if you smoke. Although we do not realize it, if we eat a lot of saturated fat, the blood will be much thicker and this will mean that when moving the legs they will have to do it with less circulation and more weight, which will cost more and on top of that, we will end up more tired.
  3. It prevents excess flaccidity in the body, but like this, it also prevents excess muscle. Keep in mind that all excess is bad and the ideal point is the middle. If the legs are flaccid and the body too, we will have to lift more weight, so having a more or less fibrous skin will prevent us from retaining liquids and it will be easier to rest them.
  4. Massage yourself, especially at night, from the ankle down with your legs up. If you can’t do it, the best thing is for someone else to do it for you and, by the way, enjoy that moment. In this article we have put a type of massage that you can do yourself or they can do it to you and that will activate the circulation in such a way that you will be able to rest better since if you bear the weight all day, your legs will be very tired and swollen.
  5. Use a sole of no more than 2-3 cm, since heels are also the direct enemies of tired legs and make them worse. If you wear very high heels, keep in mind that as we have said before, you will have to bear more weight, the posture will be different and the feet will suffer so much that this will be reflected in your legs and they will get more tired. It is also bad to have little sole because we will hurt ourselves, so this will be basic when considering the style of shoe to use.
