Improve Blood Circulation

images (50)Blood is the vital fluid of our body that is responsible for transportation of oxygen and nutrients to every cell of the body. If blood is not being distributed properly throughout your body, the cells of the whole body that produce energy will not have access to the oxygen and nutrients(that are the “raw materials” to generate energy), and your whole body will suffer. In addition to its transport function, blood flow also helps to remove foreign particles and toxins trapped within tissue; in other words, cleansing. Inadequate blood flow can cause of load of wellness problems: a prickling sensation in hands and feet, difficulty breathing, low stamina, frequent headaches, pain in the chest, and perhaps a risk of cardiac arrest. Thus, the first step to great health is improving your blood flow. Here are some ways to improve blood flow.

Exercise, exercise: work out may not necessarily mean visiting the gym, and doing some heavy workouts. Many of us might simply not spare the time to set aside for training. Exercising can mean finding yourself some exercises that can become an aspect of your regular routine. For example, performing daily tasks such as scrubbing, mopping, dusting, these actions help burn fat, and gets your heart pumping. Walk to your nearest store for your shopping requirements, instead of driving. Take the stairways instead of the lift. Climbing up stairways is a very efficient way to increase your pulse rate. Walk or jog for 20-30 minutes every day, while listening to your favorite music. This is also an excellent way to relax your mind. If your work involves sitting at your work area all day, then you can do some small stretches of 3-5 minutes, every hour.

Get a massage: massage has been shown to be efficient in increasing local blood flow, and also in stimulating healing.
