Why do I often feel the compulsion to put one leg up on the other when sitting?

Obviously it's something everyone does anyway here and there, but I'm not sure what causes me to do it as often as possible, especially at work. It just feels more comfortable that way I suppose, and after standing for a long period of time, it feels like more of a relief to sit that way than if I have both feet on the ground. Is it something to do with circulation or musculature? Is it necessarily a bad sign? And I'm not sure if it's related, but I've also done a lot of leg/foot shaking in my life, much to the annoyance of my parents.
