How To Stay Cozy & Comfortable This Harvest Day

As the summer season comes to an end, celebrate the first official day of Autumn on September 21st at the Toronto Botanical Garden’s Harvest Day Celebration. This free family-friendly event is a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends outdoors in nature planting garlic, enjoying garden-themed stories, participating in arts and crafts, and planting vegetables for the Dorset Park Food Bank. It will surely be a day you and your kids will remember!

A day filled with activity and venture (ie being on your feet for a prolonged period), don’t forget to keep your foot health in check by following these simple recommendations:

Compression stockings

If you experience swollen, tired, achy legs and have varicose veins or spider veins on your lower extremity, you may want to talk to your doctor about compression stockings. Compression stockings or compression socks work to improve circulation by offering gradual compression up the limb and therefore, promoting blood flow back to your heart. They are especially effective for people who work sitting or standing for long periods of time throughout the day, as well as pregnant women, and frequent flyers.

Standing for a long period of time outdoors will make your legs and feet cold resulting to an uncomfortable experience. Keep your lower body region warm by wearing Sigvaris Merino Wool Compression Stockings. They have fashionable styles available for both men and women, made with the highest quality and extra fine Merino wool that is latex free, comes with a double-covered inlay that is thermoregulating for year-round giving comfort making it easy to wear.

Wearing compression stockings on a day like September 21st at the Harvest Day Celebration will help to prevent swelling and heaviness in your legs and keep you happily on your feet much longer.

Proper footwear

Making the best footwear choices for your day to day life is important, and even more so when you plan to spend a little extra time on your feet. A trip to the Toronto Botanical Garden for the Harvest Day Celebration is one of those occasions where you would want to carefully consider your footwear choices and go with an option that will improve foot posture. A good shoe will have a sole that offers comfort, cushion, and stability. The shoe should be light weight and have some degree of flexibility. As a general test, try twisting the shoe at the sole and if it twists completely, it is too flexible. If you can also bend the shoe in half at the sole, it is also too flexible. A shoe with a good heel counter and heel depth as well as arch support are an added bonus.

Start off the autumn season by making healthier choices for your feet.
