Climbing up stairs has become difficult. Your legs shake just by running a little. You feel that your body can not move as much as before, especially your legs.
It’s too much of a hassle to go to the gym because first of all you don’t like to exercise, but you want to have an energetic body.
We will introduce how to create a lively body, by twisting your toes.
How to create a body that doesn’t get tired easily by twisting your toes
・The reason your body can’t move as much as before is your blood circulation
・Your feet are the key factor in improving your blood circulation
・Twisting your feet to improve blood circulation
The reason your body can’t move as much as before is your blood circulation
Body movements and blood circulation have a strong relationship. If you feel your body is heavy and is difficult to move around, there is a high chance that your blood circulation is not good.
Have you ever had the experience of not being able to smoothly move your body on a winter day when your body is very cold? This occurs when the brain detects the coldness and makes your blood vessels shrink, making your blood circulation momentarily stop.
Having a bad blood circulation means that the same thing occurs inside your body chronically. Your body not being able to move when it is cold is due to orders made by the brain to allow the body to survive, but chronic poor blood circulation is something different.
Poor blood circulation makes it difficult for blood and the enzymes and vitamins inside it to reach the edges of your body, resulting in low body temperature and difficulty moving your body.
If you don’t do anything about it, you create a downward spiral, where moving your body becomes dull → you won’t move it even more → your blood circulation becomes even more poor → your body doesn’t move even more. When you notice, your body may be in serious trouble.
Having a good blood circulation is the key to having an energetic and lively lifestyle.
Your feet are the key factor in improving your blood circulation
Although there are many effective ways to improve your blood circulation such as taking a hot bath, wearing socks, and avoiding cold foods and drinks, it is important to understand the importance of the feet.
The reason your feet are important is that since it is the area most far away from your heart and since its below it, the blood circulation of your feet easily becomes poor.
Blood is sent to the tip of the feet by the pumping action of the heart, and your calf muscles work to send the blood back. Therefore, you must move your calf muscles, or the blood in your legs will not circulate properly.
※Moving your calf muscles also improves swelling.
It is also important to move the joints of your ankle and toes. If you do not do this the blood circulation of the tip of your feet will not reach the calves. Your blood circulation will not improve no matter how much you work your calves.
To improve the blood circulation of your feet, just warming it will not do the job. It is important to move your calf muscles, and the joints of your ankle and toes.
Twisting your feet to improve blood circulation
Your calves, which are and important factor in improving your blood circulation, are used a lot in your everyday lives. They are used when you walk and when you use the stairs.
Your ankles are also easy to work out, such as when you are sitting on a chair, or waiting for someone. It is not a natural work out, but it can easily be done.
But how about exercises for your toe? Toes, different from your calves, are body parts that can not be worked out in your every day movements. It also not a part where you can move easily like your ankles.
Since your toes are the tips of the lower half of your body, if the blood circulation around it becomes bad, it will affect the blood going back to your heart from the calves.
We will introduce a way to easily exercise your toes while watching TV or talking to someone. Please do it to improve your circulation and create an energetic body.
