2008 is almost here. Have you made your New Year's Resolutions yet? If so, they probably include a number of personal goals ranging from taking more time for yourself to spending more time with loved ones. There are probably also a few goals in there about health or fitness. But what probably didn't make the list was a goal related to dealing with your varicose veins.
Sure, they bother you but not enough to be worthy of your focused goal-setting attention, right? Wrong. When you're thinking about making changes to your life, you should be thinking about the big picture as well as the small details. Taking care of things that seem minor (like your varicose veins) can lead to bigger changes. Just the process of setting goals and achieving them can be life-changing.
So here are some possible New Year's Resolutions that you might want to add to your list if you're someone who has varicose veins:
- Find a doctor that specializes in vein treatment and make an appointment.
- Research the options that you have for treating your varicose veins so that you're more informed about what can be done. You can't get sclerotherapy or VNUS Closure Fast if you don't even know what those are.
- Start walking. Walking and other leg-moving exercises will help you naturally improve those veins until you get them taken care of.
- Buy compression stockings and learn the do's and don'ts of using them.
Most importantly, commit to taking your varicose veins seriously. They may be unsightly or they may be a symptom of a bigger health problem. Knowing where you stand can make a huge difference in your daily life. And there are 366 days in the upcoming year so that's something worth improving!
