There are usually a wide variety of feelings and emotions that arise when you start something new, like a hobby or a job or even a new year. You don’t know exactly what’s ahead, after all. You might be excited or nervous, eager or indifferent, relieved or fearful, or any number of emotions. The best you can do is prepare yourself and put your best foot forward.
As you walk into 2017, refreshing your feet is a great way to start the new year so your lower limbs feel rested, pampered, and ready to take on another year.
Your feet have done a lot of work for you over the past year. They’ve walked, run, jumped, stomped, climbed, kicked, and more. All of that can take its toll, so the feet and ankles can really use rest, relaxation, refreshment, and pampering from time to time. Even if you take good care of your lower limbs, a little New Year’s refreshment is still a great plan.
So, here are just a few ways you can help refresh your feet for the start of 2017:
- Warm foot bath – Soak your feet in a nice, warm, Epsom salt foot bath. This helps relax your muscles, soften your skin, and generally soothe your feet from aches and pains.
- Massage your soles – Using a tennis ball, foot massager, or even just your hands, take the time to massage your lower limbs, particularly the soles. This relaxes and soothes sore feet.
- Invest in skin health – Moisturize your feet and use a pumice stone on your calluses.
- Stretch it out – Get up and stretch your feet. This helps loosen tightened tissues and relieve some foot stress.
- Check your shoes – Make sure your footwear is appropriately supportive and not too worn out.
Many of these options for pampering your feet are things you should do for your lower limbs regularly, not just at the start of a new year. If you really want your feet to be at their healthiest in 2017, regular foot care and period pampering is the way to go.
