Happy fall! Now that the weather is cooling down here in the desert, it’s time to take better care of your veins this season!
Varicose Veins: How To Take Care Of Them In Fall
- Wear Compression Socks
Varicose veins will interfere with blood flow, and compression socks can give you relief. They can however, be difficult to wear in hot weather. In the cooler fall months, they are more comfortable, so keep them on.
- Utilize Physical Activities
Physical activities, such as jogging or walking, will help with varicose veins. Exercising outdoors during summer may be a bit difficult due to the heat. But in fall, the weather is cool, making it a fantastic time to be outdoors. Save on the gym membership money and utilize outdoor activities such as biking and hiking.
- Avoid Inactivity
While the sedentary lifestyle may seem appealing, you will feel the impact at some point. Active individuals have better blood flow resulting in better overall health. Avoid sitting for extended periods of time, and if you have to, like during work hours, ensure you stand up occasionally.
- Watch What You Eat
Incorporate a healthy dose of vegetables in your diet. Particular vegetables are excellent for varicose veins. Broccoli helps with blood circulation and is a delicious vegetable full of nutrients.
If you are not a big fan of broccoli, substitute them with onions. You get the same benefits, and most importantly, since they are in season, you will find plenty of them around.
