You are the master of your body, but your feet bear the weight of your body each time they touch the ground, whenever you're standing, walking, jumping, or running.
When was the last time you measured your feet? It is important to find the right-sized shoes to keep your feet in fitting working order. Make sure that each shoe fits properly, and comfortably without cramming.
It is recommended to wear the right shoes when walking, especially those designed with fasteners, laces, buckles or Velcro straps to hold onto the foot – with less impact of walking on hard surfaces, and to keep the feet in a supported position, and to help reduce fatigue.
Inspect your feet regularly for any cuts, sores, bunions, blisters, scratches, ingrown toenails, swelling, heel spur, or fungal infection that hasn’t healed or noticed a change in skin color that may point to something more serious.
- They will love a soak in Epsom Salts or Magnesium Bath Salt, but make sure they are always well dried to prevent infection
- Apply moisturizer daily, but not between the toes to improve skin elasticity and resilience
- Avoid wearing shoes that are tight-fitting, too narrow or worn-out
- Shoes require plenty of room for your toes with a wide heel
- Rotate your shoes without wearing the same pair every day.
- Supportive shoes can help
Take responsibility and give focus on good feet hygiene with correct fitting shoes to help prevent issues with your feet down the track.
Walking is good for joint stability, muscle strength, posture, balance, for breathing, and has a positive effect on our mental health as well!
Give your feet the appropriate attention they deserve with lots of TLC.
