The Power of Making a Daily Difference

Making a lifestyle change is no easy feat, especially in a world that thrives on instant gratification. Sometimes, all it takes is one misstep to leave you feeling discouraged and way off track. However, what if we told you that you could have your cake and eat it too? Metaphorically, of course. At VIM & VIGR, we believe in the power of daily differences – making mindful choices that help you feel empowered, while also being proactive about your future.

When you make small daily differences toward bettering your health and quality of life, you can make space for realistic, positive expectations and, in turn, release the added pressures of unrealistic goal setting. You might be wondering, “What in the world are these ‘daily differences’ you speak of?” It simply means making conscious choices throughout the day that benefit your health and happiness. A daily difference might include opting for the stairs instead of the elevator, scheduling some “me-time” into your calendar, or wearing compression socks in place of regular socks – see how it works?

Wearing compression socks is one of the easiest and most rewarding daily differences you can make. When you put on a pair of VIM & VIGR compression socks, a couple things happen. First, you might smile – the colors and designs are both classy and fun, giving every outfit (from scrubs to business attire to workout gear) a stylish, personalized twist. Looking good feels good! Second, you’ll feel a squeeze. This therapeutic pressure is actively increasing the circulation of freshly oxygenated blood back to your legs, which has some incredible benefits: increased energy, alleviated achiness and heaviness, faster muscle recovery, swelling prevention and more. The third thing that will happen is that you feel these benefits by the end of the day, whether you were running around or sitting at your desk. Not bad for a pair of socks!

When it comes to enrolling in daily differences, you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain. These small changes are subtle and effective, making it easy to incorporate them into your permanent routine. What kind of daily differences are you going to make so that you can invest in your future while enjoying your life to the fullest? Tweet us at @VIMVIGR, or leave 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.

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.
