I work retail and am often made to stand at my cash register for 7 hours a day. Is this bad for us circulation wise? All I know is if I am not able to walk my feet and legs are in so much pain by the end of the day I come home and all I want to do is sit. Any information would be really helpfull!

Like anyone, just standing in one place for long periods of time is hard on the body. Is there a way you can move around a little bit while you are at the register? Even doing some stepping in place can help with the fatigue.

I don't know if medically it's bad. I know if you cannot get a break to drink or take care of your diabetes that is bad.
