MOVE!
Walk, climb stairs, move your legs around at the office and at home. Avoid prolonged sitting or standing which may cause leg pain and swelling.
REFRESH YOUR LEGS
After a long tiring day, or during the hot season, refresh your legs with a cool shower. Avoid long exposure to heat like sunbathing, hot baths, saunas that may lead veins to dilate and induce swelling.
 
RAISE YOUR LEGS
In order to ease the venous blood return, elevate your legs at home while sitting on the sofa or lying in bed. At the office, have a leg rest under your desk.
 
EXERCISE
Regular exercise is always recommended for a healthy body. Some sports reinforce a better venous blood return : swimming, walking, biking, gymnastics, yoga. Sports associated with sudden brutal stops like tennis, squash, hockey, volley ball, basket ball are less beneficial.
 
MAINTAIN A REASONABLE BODY WEIGHT
Having a healthy diet will help you keep a normal weight thus lowering leg symptoms and swelling
