Preventing vein disorders is as easy as taking a daily walk! Not only is this exercise easy to do for anyone no matter what their fitness level may be, but it gets you outside and active.

The summer is a fun time to whip out that old bicycle and take a scenic ride outdoors. Not only is this exercise fun, but it is very good for leg and vein health.
Start this exercise by standing with the weight focused on the balls of your feet for a second or two. Next, slowly bring your heels down. Make sure that you are near a wall or banister to keep your balance!
