In a Resolution Slump?

So you set a resolution, watched the ball drop at midnight and found yourself in 2018.
But after all the confetti and fireworks, January seems to be flying by and taking your
personal goal with it! If this sounds familiar, you may be in a resolution slump. Let’s face
it, it’s hard to stay inspired and motivated all year long! That’s why we compiled a few
tips and tricks to reach your resolutions — no matter how big or small.


Break it up into steps. ​If you feel like your resolution is out the window, it’s time to
pump the breaks and map out your course. Think of your resolution as your dream
destination. Whether it’s miles away or down the street, it requires passing landmarks
along the way. It’s important to set personal milestones and reach them at a
comfortable pace. This will keep your progress in check and make your resolution more
achievable.


For example, if your resolution is to run 20 minutes at least three times a week, don’t try
to reach for it right away! Create a plan to work up to running at that rate. Try running for
a shorter amount of time three times a week. Take into account the recovery time you’ll
need before you start ramping up the length of your runs. If you want to shorten your
recovery time, remember to re-hydrate, refuel and slip on compression socks after your
workout!


Bring a friend along for the ride. ​Trips are more fun with family and friends! Team up
with someone who’s also motivated and passionate about reaching the same resolution.
It will give you someone to turn to if you hit bumps in the road and vice versa. If you
both cheer each other on, you’ll definitely stay inspired throughout the year.

 

Avoid an all-or-nothing approach — try, try again! ​You may face detours and delays along the way, but the key is to work through them. Turn to your resolution buddy or
other family and friends if you need help. Don’t let obstacles and challenges discourage
you from your dream destination. If you slip up on your milestone, brainstorm solutions
and keep trying.


Achieving your goal can be difficult and that’s okay! Hitting those milestones and finally
reaching your resolution is what makes the journey worth it. What are some of your
personal tips for hitting your goals? Leave them in a comment below!

Sizing, Fabric & Compression Levels Guide

Size Chart:

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.

Garment Care:

Compression Levels:

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.

How to put on compression socks:

Slip your arm into the sock until your fingers reach the toes. Your palm should be resting in the sock's heel. 

Starting at the cuff, fold the sock over until it meets the heel. Make sure to fold the sock onto itself.

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.
