How to improve blood circulation at home 

Blood circulation is essential to your overall health and well-being. It can become negatively impacted by certain conditions that may restrict your blood flow or impact the ability of your veins to circulate blood. Some of these conditions include chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins and venous ulcers. 

What are some of the ways you can improve your circulation from home? 

  • Elevate your legs — A method for improving blood circulation from home is to keep your legs elevated about your heart. Doing so can help keep your blood from pooling and give you some extra help pumping blood back up through the legs. 
  • Get plenty of cardiovascular exercise — One way to improve blood circulation from home is to make sure you get lots of exercise. Cardiovascular exercise can help boost circulation everywhere throughout the body because it can get the heart pumping blood through your body quicker.  
  • Wear compression stockings — One more thing you can do from your home is to regularly wear compression stockings. These compression stockings may be prescribed by your doctor, and they function to prevent blood from pooling in the legs. They also help prevent and reduce swelling that can occur from blood pooling, by keeping constant pressure on the legs. These socks are designed to help with your blood flow and can be integrated into your everyday routine.
