This is the time of the year when you resolve to take better care of your body. We applaud your goals, but also urge you not to forget your feet!
We all do it — when making resolutions, feet often get lost in the shuffle, lagging way behind losing weight, working out, and even flossing.
This year, we made foot care resolutions easy for you. All you have to do is keep this simple checklist handy and regularly check back to our DTF blog for more ways you can be kind to your feet.
Our fingers are crossed that you will take good care of your feet in 2018. They’ll be so grateful, and you’ll feel worlds better.
Here’s how you start:
This is the most simple way to keep your feet flexible and strong. It doesn’t take more than a few minutes every day or do it more often when you realize how good it makes your feet feel.
- Don’t go barefoot
Being barefoot seems like the most natural thing in the world, until you realize that it causes enormous strain and can lead to infections and athlete’s foot. Even at the family picnic, or at the pool or the beach, be sure to wear shoes that always support and protect your feet.
- Avoid flat footwear
Flat footwear seems like simple, easy options, but they can cause heel pain, tendinitis, and stress fractures. Having flat feet while wearing flat footwear will only aggravate these problems.
- Wear slippers in the house
Once you get home, you may have a tendency to chill out by going barefoot or just wearing socks. Instead, go for slippers. They’ll keep your feet supported while protecting them from injury and infection. Don’t just wear any old slippers, though. Make sure they offer good orthotic and ergonomic support.
- Swear off high heels
Heels may be a high-fashion favorite, but what they ultimately do is force all of your weight to the front of your foot, which brings the pain. High heels also invite bunions, corns, and other problems.
Here are some alternatives that will keep you looking good without keeping your feet in agony: try a lower (two-inch) heel, but only occasionally. If you have flat feet, choose chunky heels instead of skinny ones.
- See your foot care professional.
Schedule a regular check-up (it’s very common to neglect this – but also vital to make it a part of your health regimen). In particular, if you experience any of these symptoms, see your doctor immediately:
- Difficulty walking
- Persistent swelling
- Poor circulation/cold feet
- Burning pain, tingling or numbness
- Changes in skin condition
- If you have diabetes or suspect that you do.
