The next time a flight is in your future, consider wearing a pair of compression socks. Studies show that they help circulate oxygenated blood and prevent conditions like blood clots and deep vein thrombosis. And don’t wear the ugly brown medical-grade socks that your grandmother wore because companies like VIM & VIGR make socks, such as those pictured, in cool and stylish designs.

“I’ve never had any real problems flying, but after long flights sometimes my legs feel a bit tired and heavy so I tried them,” says Rita Guarna, editor in chief of Monmouth Health and Life. “I definitely felt the difference: After landing, my legs felt rested enough to sprint through the airport.”
