I don’t travel a lot. Most of the time, I am quite content to work at home on my blog posts and putter around in the garden. Every now and then, for business, I need to travel and I just returned home from a blog trip to Boston.
Relieve Tired Legs While Traveling
Generally traveling means a lot of walking. Just getting from one side of the airport terminal to the other can seem like a marathon. At the end of the day, my legs are generally tired and achy. I have mild varicose veins in both legs, which means I can have mild swelling and an achy feeling when I’m on my feet all day. I didn’t want that to have a negative impact on my trip so I have found some tried and true ways to relieve tired legs while traveling.
- Drink plenty of water. One of the very best ways to keep your body in the best condition possible is to stay hydrated. Make sure you drink plenty of water while you’re traveling.
- Bring along a lotion that contains peppermint oil. Peppermint oil is known to help with inflammation. Find a travel size bottle and pack it in your suitcase to apply when you arrive at your destination.
- When you get to the hotel, enjoy a long soak in the tub. Warm water is relaxing and will help promote good circulation.
- As often as possible, rest with your feet up. Elevating your feet will help reduce swelling. If you can, elevate your feet at night on a few pillows while you’re sleeping.
- Take breaks to stretch your legs and feet. Trying curling and uncurling your toes, rotating your ankles, or if you can massaging your feet.
- Pick comfortable shoes. I know, we all love the way heels dress up an outfit but when traveling, it might make more sense to choose a flat or at least a lower heel than you normally wear. You can always change them when you get to your destination.
- Wear FUTURO™ Graduated Compression Legwear designed to soothe symptoms of swelling, tired, aching legs and mild varicose veins.

The graduated compression improves circulation, with maximum compression at the ankle that gradually decreases up the leg. They massage tired, achy legs as you walk and move which makes them ideal for being on your feet or sitting in one place all day, traveling or doing active office work. The FUTURO™ Graduated Compression Legwear features balloon toe and reciprocated heel for added comfort.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when wearing the FUTURO™ Energizing Trouser Socks for Women but they really do help sooth symptoms of mild varicose veins, swelling and tired, aching legs. The material is soft and comfortable and the wide band at the top holds the socks securely in place. These are great for business, casual and weekend wear and I love how they helped relieve my tired legs during my business trip to Boston. I did a ton of walking and had much less leg and foot tiredness while wearing these socks than I have in the past.
