Fidgeting could help combat blood clots

According to a new study, a little fidgeting while sitting at your desk could actually save your life by preventing blood clots from forming.

And that’s especially true if you spend a lot of time sitting or lead an otherwise sedentary life.

It’s been widely reported that when you sit for too long, it creates the perfect condition for blood clots to form in your legs. When those blood clots dislodge and travel through your system… they can be fatal.

Mainstream doctors seem to think the solution is to prescribe blood-thinning medications to keep your blood from becoming too “thick”. But now it turns out that if you are a bit fidgety, you can help stop those blood clots from forming in the first place without having to take any drugs!

It’s just common sense: The more you move around, the more your blood flow is increased.

Of course, you should also get some light exercise in… if you can. That’s how you can get your blood pumping to all the areas of your body that need it.

Getting some consistent movement – even if it’s just some light fidgeting while sitting at your computer or during a long flight – could turn out to be a lifesaver.

But you don’t need to buy a toy to get all your healthy fidgeting in. Bounce a leg up and down… flex your leg muscles… roll your shoulders… stretch your arms over your head… whatever it takes to keep your blood circulating through your body rather than forming dangerous blood clots.

Wishing you the best of health,
