Strengthen Your Whole Body, Mind, Soul, & Feet
Posted on July 30 2020
Often when we think of health, we only talk about the physical aspect, but your body, mind, and soul require care as well. To be truly healthy, you need a holistic approach.
If there is one thing 2020 has taught us is that our immune system, our mental health, and our soul are linked. When one gets out of whack, it all gets out of whack.
So what can we do about it?
For starters, we can run
Running strengthens your whole body, mind, and soul. Here’s how.
When we run, we unplug from the noise of technology. We find our zone and tune in to either a favorite playlist or podcast or we simply listen to the world buzzing past us.
We let go of the stresses of our day, focusing on the road ahead of us. One step after another, we succumb to the rhythm of the run. We think through the present, listening to our body and what it is telling us about this moment.
Running strengthens our heart as our body grows stronger and is able to handle additional stresses placed on it.
Additionally, that running high releases endorphins that improve happiness and increase our ability to focus. These chemicals released by your brain will help you feel more refreshed and energized after a run.
Wellness can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to
Wellness is important, but it can feel overwhelming. From dieting to exercise tips, we’ve read the blogs, watched the YouTube videos, and tried the diets. It can be downright exhausting to stay informed.
By now, we’ve got it. Taking care of your whole self can truly be simplified into three steps:
- Eat healthier
- Get plenty of rest
The problem is that everyone has a different idea of the most effective way to do each of these. Whether it’s giving up meat or doing Keto, skipping processed foods or doing mail-order meals… the advice and the options are endless.
You need to do you
Surround yourself with healthy options that you enjoy and that please the palette, making choosing health the easy solution. Create routines that allow you to get a good night’s sleep. Turn off the electronics an hour before bed. Create a calming environment and ease into sleep.
You need to surround yourself with what you love, make the bad habits and the temptations difficult to access and make the good choices that increase your holistic health easier to manage.
Don’t overthink this.
Seriously. Don’t overthink this.
Stress is not good for you either. Do your best to minimize your stress so that you’re not taking away from your progess.
Learn to love yourself and make your well-being a priority
Self-care is so important. You’ve heard this preached to you from multiple angles, I know. But here is the thing. If you aren’t doing self-care, then you haven’t heard it enough.
We aren’t talking about bubble baths and wine night. True self-care is about taking care of you, the whole you.
You need to take some time and truly get to know yourself. What in your life relieves stress? Maybe running is more of a fitness goal then a stress reliever. That’s ok. Try yoga, meditation, or painting. Perhaps curling up with a good book or writing a story is your go-to.
Do animals help you destress? Start volunteering at a shelter or become a foster parent. Taking care of yourself doesn’t mean you unplug from the world around you. It means you find the things that feed your soul, and then you surround yourself with them.
Dress to impress, you
Crazy Compression is here to help you surround yourself with what feeds your soul. We think you should dress to impress exactly one person, you. From the toes up, start telling the world what you love and what keeps you going. That’s why you’ll find so many unique, fun, and crazy designs on our socks.
Clothes affect your fitness goals. They play a part in your mental health and self-talk. So start putting on the clothes that make you smile, that support you in your journey, and help tell your story.
All of our 1-20mmhg TRUE graduated compression socks and sleeves are made here in the United States. They are made from lightweight, breathable micro-nylon with moisture control, leaving your feet dry and comfortable all day.
Your feet, ankles, and legs take a beating--whether you sit or stand all day. Whether you are active or sedentary, the vascular system is working against gravity to get your blood flowing back to your heart. Graduated compression socks help keep the blood moving in the right direction, preventing it from pooling. That pooling leads to swelling and pain, both of which may be prevented with compression socks.
Making sure your feet and ankles are strong and supported is good self-care. That foot rub you’ve been asking for, yes that is definitely self-care! Tell the hubs to lotion up while you pull out your laptop and do a little sock shopping here.
Poor circulation and the pooling of blood in your lower extremities can lead to more serious problems like edema, varicose and spider veins, and blood clots. That tiny graduated squeeze from compression socks is the hug you need to get your blood flowing in the right direction.
We want your legs to continue to support you in the most comfortable and fashionable ways possible. If you aren’t happy with your purchase, find they don’t fit correctly, or if they develop a hole or a defect, we will happily send you a replacement. Here are the details on our lifetime guarantee.
