    My legs were usually fine after 12-16 hour shifts due to being physically fit. If I needed to recover, it was my ability to see and think straight that was my main focus. This usually occurred after a long shift, where I probably either did not eat at all (I mean absolutely no breaks!!!) and/or I had to attend a stupid meeting on Day-Shift right after completing my Night-Shift (FYI managers, your Night-Shift workers need to sleep too... So leave them alone and let them go home! They can get whatever you want to tell them at a meeting in a Memo sent to them via email... Your Night-Shift workers risk their lives getting home after his/her shift to attend your SILLY meetings! Thus, NONE of your meetings are important enough for them to attend. Not a ONE)!

    My legs are always feeling good due to technology. A good buddy of mine told me about 'recovery sox' that he uses when he does a long run. I have been wearing them ever since. They are basically graduated compression sox and a bit pricey (like $25) but worth their weight in gold. No more tired legs, check them out: Amazon.com: Vitalsox Patented Performance Graduated Compression Socks, White, Medium: Clothing

    Nice! So if you work 5 days a week, that's 5 pairs of socks. $125. $125 versus potential health problems from standing up all the time, cost of potential surgeries, medications, etc (i.e. varicose veins, etc). I think I'm all in!
