Cold weather tips for vein health
If you can, bundle up and embrace a winter activity like skiing, skating, snowshoeing or fat biking – it will help your veins!
If you just can’t bear to be outside for long, you can always adapt your exercise routine for the indoors. Join a gym and hop on the treadmill or spinning bike. Go for a walk at the local mall or indoor track.
If you have a job where you’re sitting all day, remember to take regular stretch breaks and go for a little walk around the office once an hour.
Elevate your legs for 30 minutes per day, and remember to stretch and massage them.
Finally, remember to stay hydrated. We might not feel as thirsty when it’s cold as we do in the summer, but it’s always a good idea to sip water throughout the day – even if you don’t feel thirsty.Ready to get rid of those varicose veins?
