I have always been worried about blood clots. I have coworkers who have developed them from excessive sitting, and no one sits more than me during the day. I have the eight hours at work, but then I add at least four hours daily in the train. I really needed this article.
This article provides some exercises to help in the prevention of blood clots. I particularly appreciate ideas of exercises while at your desk, and I will be incorporating some of them into my routine. This will be along with some exercises I do to keep the circulation in my arms. Foot pumps, ankle circles, shoulder rolls and leg raises seem pretty easy. However, it is important to walk as frequently as possible.
Health Is Vital
Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out.
