  • Happy Feet!

    November 30, 2015

    Do you have happy feet? When I think about all the work the feet do, the line that comes to mind is from Roger Dangerfield. “They get no respect!” They certainly don’t get the respect they deserve, that is until your feet hurt, and then they have your absolute attention. Then, and only then, do you experience just how important it is for your feet to be happy! Those little things (by comparison) support all of your weight and carry you from place to place. Never compromise footwear by wearing shoes that don’t fit properly. Show your feet some love and massage them! Get a bottle of water and push it back and forth on the floor with each foot.  Then a pedicure (yes, you men too)! Ah…the feet are already feeling better.
