4 Tips for Healthy Feet
Our feet barely receive the attention that they deserve. Despite the fact that they carry us around every day, we often stuff them into tiny, pointy, heeled, or dead-flat shoes, until we reach our “middle age,” when all of a sudden our feet give up and we’re forced into sneakers and comfort shoes for the rest of our lives. Here are some tips for keeping your toes healthy:
- 1. Walk barefoot. Take off your shoes and walk around barefoot, especially inside your home. Let your toes spread, feel the temperature of the ground through your feet and embrace the sensations of your feet. Our feet are much like our hands, so let them explore, feel and add to your life.
- 2. Spread your toes. Yoga Toes are great. But fingers are free and work just as well. Interlace your fingers and toes from the pinky inwards. As your toes start to spread, wiggle your interlace right down to the webbing of your fingers and toes. Squeeze and release! Repeat everyday!
- 3. Pull your toes. Bend your forefinger and middle finger and pull on each toe vigorously, waking up the tiny joints and releasing stagnation from the area. Grab a reflexology chart, and you’ll see that the toes relate greatly to the eyes, ears, sinus’ and brain functions, yet they are usually the ones that suffer the most in our shoes. Tug at your toes and see if this brings any extra sinus relief.
- 4. Lift them up. After a long day on your feet, lie down and kick your feet up a wall in Viparita Karani Mudra, letting all that excess fluid drain out of the feet. Our feet shouldn’t feel like mud bricks at the bottom of our legs, they should feel as supple and mobile as our hands.
