Posted on May 3, 2020 by Texas Vein & Wellness Institute
Making changes to live healthier doesn’t mean that you have to give up everything tasty in the world and only eat kale. There are small, reasonable changes that you can make to live a healthier life overall. If you want to keep your veins healthy or if you want to prevent your varicose veins from getting worse, then we have a few easy solutions for you to try this summer.
Drink More Water
Drinking more water is a great way to increase your blood circulation throughout your body. Not only that, but drinking water is a great way to help you in virtually every part of of your physical life including maintaining a healthy weight, combating headaches, feeling more alert, a staying fit.
Find a Good Cardio Workout
The great thing about cardio workouts is that they can help you burn a lot of calories in a small amount of time. Additionally, the higher you get your heart rate goes up, the more circulation your blood is going to get, which means that it will be a lot better on your veins. If you haven’t done a cardio workout in a long time, ease yourself into the process so that you don’t overdo it and get injured.
Rest Your Legs
If you do a lot of standing and exercising, don’t forget to rest your legs everyone in a while. If you have varicose veins, too much standing can make the blood continue to pool in your legs, but by resting your legs and keeping them in a neutral position, you can prevent the blood from pooling in one area for a consistent amount of time.
