Top Tips for Surviving Long Shifts
Working all day on your feet can be super exhausting and taxing on your body. Here are our top 4 picks to help you get through a long shift and stay cool and comfortable.
One of our favorites, these work gloves are highly protective without compromising dexterity at all. The synthetic fabric is insulating yet breathable so your hands stay cool in the summer and warm when it’s cold. They’re shrink resistant so you’ll definitely be able to get a lot of use out of them, even with constant wear and tear. And it doesn’t hurt that they look great too.
We talk about insoles a lot on this blog because they really do make a difference. Getting a new pair of insoles is like getting a new shoe. Tons of brands make insoles that are specifically designed for work. If you’re on your feet for a long time, try the Superfeet Copper Insoles. They have a deep heel cup which provides ample support especially for high impact activities. They’re made out of memory foam for a truly customized fit for maximum comfort.
When it comes to comfort, a Moc Toe is your best friend. The Ever Boots Weldor is known for supreme comfort right out of the box. The sole offers a more cushioned step compared to a traditional heeled boot and the full grain leather is flexible and breathable for your comfort. Best of all, they’re super lightweight so you don’t have to compromise any agility.
The most important thing you can do to stay comfortable is to stay hydrated. This Rambler water bottle is nearly indestructible and won’t chip or dent from serious falls. It keeps your water cold all day long, no matter how hot it is outside. It’s completely leak proof and dishwasher safe. Get yourself a water bottle that’s tough as nails.
Investing in your comfort is an investment in your health. Try out a few of these products and see if you hold up better after a long day at work. Small adjustments like these can help you tough out long shifts and feel better at the end of the day.
