It’s the dreariest part of winter, and we’re tired of staying inside. Outside the snow continues to fall, but we’re acutely aware that spring is coming, with summer not far behind. As New Year’s Resolutions begin to crumble, we’re feeling the pull to be active again.
Staying active doesn’t have to be a huge commitment involving monumental goals. The most achievable steps to everyday wellness are within your reach AND within your schedule. By thinking creatively – and sometimes a little less “efficiently” – you can make little bursts of activity part of your every day life.
With these tips and a little flexibility, you don’t have to spend hours in the gym to stay healthy. Weaving activity into your daily routine can be a sustainable approach to well-being – outlasting even your best-intentioned resolutions.
Tell us how you stay active every day in the comments below! We’d love to hear your ideas.

We have a different sizing chart depending on the type of compression garment. Please consider your foot and calf circumference when choosing your size.
If you're in between sizes, ask yourself a few questions:
What is my body type? Will I be more comfortable in a size up or down? Take your body type into consideration when choosing a size especially if you're in between sizes.

Compression garments are made in a variety of support levels, each of which is designed to address different needs. These levels are most commonly expressed in millimeters of mercury (abbreviated as mmHg). Generally, graduated compression is displayed in ranges. The higher the numerical value, the stronger the support level indicated. For example, a 20-30 mmHg garment will offer more support and feel tighter than a 15-20 mmHg garment.
All of VIM & VIGR’s products are offered in 15-20 mmHg compression level and select styles are available in 20-30 mmHg.

With the sock still inverted, pull the foot of the sock firmly onto your foot. Make sure your toes are securely in the toe pocket. Starting with the cuff, gradually roll the sock up.
Adjust so that your heel is properly positioned in the heel pocket and the cuff sits below the knee. Make sure the cuff is not pulled up too high.
