Are you one of the 80% of Americans that have a sedentary job? If you’re stuck at a desk all day, you know how uncomfortable this can be. Sitting all day can contribute to obesity and other issues which can lead to varicose veins.

Whether you’re parking farther away from the office or taking walking breaks during the day, walking will increase circulation and keep your energy up!

Peddler your feet while you work to burn calories and increase circulation!
