Vote No to Crossing Legs
Gonna keep this one short and sweet today. Stop crossing your legs! This is such a habit for many and we do it without thinking. When you cross your legs you are increasing pressure on your lower back and hip. More importantly you are shutting off venous and lymphatic circulation in the popliteal fossa (behind the knee). You need these channels functioning properly in order to fully heal any injuries in your lower leg properly. This can lead to swelling and pain in the lower extremity. Just don't do it!
