When it comes to health, if there’s one thing that we don’t always tend to think about, it’s our feet. It’s safe to say that you know you need to eat well and exercise, and you’ll spend time taking care of your skin, but sometimes, it can stop there. But our poor little feet work so hard. They can get sore and generally beat up! So it’s only fair that we show them a little bit of respect and care whenever we can. After all, we got to the dentist to take care of our teeth, we got to the hair salon to take care of our hair, so why not make time for our toes too? Whether you choose to see a chiropodist or not, here are some tips that can help you to put a spring back in your step – just in time for spring too!
Wear The Right Footwear
Up first, you should always make sure that you’re wearing the right footwear. No ifs! Wearing well-fitting, comfortable shoes and women’s socks that are good for you is important. If you’re not supporting your feet, how do you expect them to stay happy and healthy? Even if you love to wear stiletto heels – you know that they’re not great for your feet, so it’s better off to make sure they fit you properly to keep your feet healthy.
Give Them A Rest
Next, you’re going to want to make sure that you do give them a bit of a break. If you are a huge heel wearer, then it’s time to give them a bit of a break in-between. Let your feet rest when you’re sat down, or change your shoes to walk so that they get a break. Then, at the end of a long day, put your feet up – literally. Get some comfy socks on and elevate your feet to let them rest and kickstart your circulation.
Do you ever give your feet a good pamper? If not, then now’s the perfect time to start. Feeling good is all about taking care of yourself, and pampering can really help with that. So be sure to moisturize your feet and take the dead skin off regularly to keep them soft, supple, and happy.
Then, from here, definitely think about giving yourself an at-home pedicure. You’ve already done half the work, so now it’s time to work on those toes. Shape your nails to a healthy length and pick out a polish color that you love. Brightening up your toes will also brighten up your mood too!
Give Them Some Love
Finally, you’re going to want to go in with a complete treat for your feet and get a foot massage. Because we really do spend all day on our feet and they’re always so much more tense and sore than you can imagine they are. With regular massages, you’ll be rubbing them back to life, boosting your circulation, and relaxing your mind too – what more could you want?
