My family is full of teachers whether blood or honorary and the one complaint I hear most often (aside from grading papers) is - "My feet and legs hurt!" After a long day of standing and teaching who can blame them? Many teachers spend a good majority of the day on their feet. In my mom's case she happens to be an English professor. Her field, of course, requires lengthy discussions of literature which for added effect sound better standing up, or if you are Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society standing on your desk reading Walt Whitman's O Captain! My Captain! Long story short, your feet and legs are tired after all is said and done. Standing for hours puts a huge amount of stress on your circulatory system - it has to fight gravity to get blood from your feet to your heart for fresh oxygen. This causes cramping, heavy legs and even varicose and spider veins.
The good thing about these problems is they are easily fixed, especially with BrightLife Go's compression line. BrightLife Go offers professional and comfortable compression socks in different lengths and styles. Either way it is possible to be stylish and comfortable while teaching!
