The life of modern man is becoming more active, the events follow each other all the more promptly, but the mobility, by contrast, is falling. What we have as a result? 15% of the time any of us spend sitting behind the wheel of a car or hanging on the handlebars in a crowded subway car, often with heavy bags. Another 8-10 hours (30-40%), we spend at work, that is, sitting — the computer, in meetings, or stand — behind the reception desk, behind the counter in a store. Home duties also basically "standing" — cooking, washing dishes, lessons with children. Even from the entertainment we often opt for theater, cinema, restaurant and Internet, because after so many hours of sitting and standing, it seems there is no way out for a walk.
It would seem that it is an objective reality, because all live, and thank God that there is work, family and money for the theater. But, no matter how trite sound, the main thing in our life — it's great, and it should be protected, because when it is not, we can not not work as it should, no fun, and "weather in the house" goes bad or outright . And in a situation where 90% of the time we have to sit or stand virtually motionless — and this, combined with stress, lack of exercise, irregular and / or malnutrition — one of the main impacts have on our feet. They start to hurt and swell, become heavy, there are the first vascular "stars."
This is because the blood vessels stagnates violated its normal current, and this could then lead to serious consequences for both aesthetic (bulging veins, deformation and discoloration of the skin), and the physiological nature (swelling, numbness, pain). In turn, these effects influence the social and professional life: there are some restrictions in the clothes and shoes, it becomes difficult to fly in an airplane and carry a change of climate, stand for long. Therefore it is necessary to pay due attention to prevention, especially if you are at risk due to two or more factors, such as: heredity, age, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, prolonged static loads, high growth, frequent flights, hormonal drugs, sports overload, constant strong stress and, finally, pregnancy and childbirth.
Observe the prevention of venous insufficiency is both easy and difficult. Just because they only take us back to the natural state, and is difficult because we are so used to eating properly, not only to move and live in defiance of the biological clock and the laws that go "back to nature" is very easy. But it must be done — for the love of self and of his feet.

It is equally important to keep your back straight.
