Okay… today is about a shameless plug for something new in my life… compression socks!
I know. You might have the same impression I’ve had of compression socks. They are for old people. Then, a few things happened in my life. I got old. My leg ache so bad I can’t sleep at night. And I was impressed with how much my friend Sheri loves her compression socks. Seriously, I did not anticipate how painful and sore my legs would get. I also did not anticipate how good these socks would work.
At first I wondered why compression socks work for people. Well, I learned that compression improves circulation and oxygenated blood flow. I’m not an athlete, but I am on the go all the time. Compression socks provides extra support to stabilizes the muscle tissues and reduces inflammation. Compression socks reduce the swelling in my legs at the end of a long day.
I actually feel a little silly that I have never tried compression socks before now! Besides being so darn helpful, I have found many fun and funky colors and patterns in these spiffy little socks. I was worried that they wouldn’t fit my fat legs. The brands I found fit! And they don’t roll down my legs. They stay put. I thought they would be too hot. So far, so good. They are super comfy.
These are the socks I bought on Amazon.
What socks have you tried? If you haven’t tried them, you need to!
