How Do I Improve Blood Circulation Flow
Increasing blood circulation is a necessary step to improve upon your health and maintain your body. Having a healthy balance of movement and rest is essential in aiding our bodies to continue to function as designed, but also in our mental and emotional well-being. Our emotions, mental health and physical health all need movement and peaceful environments.
When our bodies are relaxed, we have increased blood flow which improves our energy. With an increased blood flow our muscles and systems are being nourished appropriately to maintain health. With proper blood flow our bodies are able to move toxins and waste out through our kidneys and liver, maintaining balance within us.
- Regular exercise
- Intentional activities outside – biking, hiking, walking
- Park in a further away parking spot
- Set timers to get up and move each hour
- Stop smoking
- Stay hydrated with water
- Stand while working in full or part
- 5-10 squats at each restroom visit
Getting creative with improving blood circulation can over time help your body and stabilize your emotions bringing a calmer personal space. Adding a new activity to your day to decrease sedentary lifestyles can improve more than just your physical body. What other ideas do you have to increase movement and help with blood circulation?
