Did you spend Spring Break in flip-flops lounging on a beach? Or maybe you and your family traipsed around a new town, checking out landmarks and tourist sites? Whatever you did and wherever you went on Spring Break, consider what your feet went through, too. It can be hard on your feet to get back into a daily routine after being used in different ways!
Here are some great ways to ease your feet back into the day-to-day and keep them feeling great:
- Ask your partner for a foot massage – This simple at-home activity is a fun, easy way to relax your feet while connecting with your loved one. Massage oil or moisturizer helps keep the skin healthy. Don’t forget to offer to reciprocate!
- Get a pedicure – Regular pedicures are a great way to treat yourself while maintaining the health of your feet. Pedicures keep your feet looking great, keep your nails trimmed, keep calluses under control, and keep your skin moisturized and healthy.
- Go shoe shopping – If you’ve been in flip-flops for the past week, your feet may not be feeling the support they need. Make sure you have your feet properly measured and get a well-fitting shoe in your size. If your heels have been feeling sore, consider orthotic inserts or shoes with a little more cushion.
- Check in with your podiatrist – Your podiatrist can help set a course for healthy feet for life and offer daily foot care tips.
