The feet absorb a lot of stress throughout the day. Strenuous walking or standing for long periods of time have an obvious effect, but ill-fitting or poorly padded shoes, tight socks or stockings and poor circulation can also cause tired aching feet. Living with foot conditions can also cause additional fatigue and dealing with daily pain.
The good news is there are many things you can do to soothe your tired feet, from ice packs and cold baths to massagers and special insoles. Always speak to a doctor or podiatrist about any foot problems you may be experiencing, to ease discomfort.

Ice – Using a small bag of ice or frozen vegetables wrapped in a towel placed on your painful feet for 5 to 15 minutes several times a day helps reduce inflammation and eases pain.
Foot Soaks – A warm soak is a simple but effective way to relax the feet and relieve aches and pains. A tried and true home remedy, a foot soak in warm water with a little Epsom salt can be soothing.
Stretches – Regular foot exercises can help ease tight muscles and increase flexibility. Try gentle stretches.
Massage – Gently rubbing and massaging the feet can be very soothing and beneficial for sore muscles. You can do this yourself or get a leg and foot massage from a partner or friend. To make a foot massage at home more fun, use a foot-spa machine or foam roller with massage nodes on the floor.
