Caring for tired feet

Tired Feet

At the end of any day, the body is bound to be exhausted. Whether you did a rigorous exercise program or just went out for a casual walk at the park, you tire your body in more ways than one.

However, the body part that usually takes the most beating after a day’s work are your feet. Little is known about this little, often ignored fact.

Your feet deserve more attention than what they’re getting. You can begin by caring for them more.

Our feet are our body’s workhorses. They take on the burden of our body weight, absorb the stress brought about by constant movement, standing or walking. These can affect the health of our feet.

An internet site suggests that you can start by resting your feet at the end of the day.

Relax and sit.

Sometimes, after a particularly tiring day, our feet get sore.

‘A good way to rest them is by elevating your feet on a pillow or a low platform; it helps with blood circulation and eases the swollen feeling.’’

Another factor that causes foot soreness is wrong choice of shoes.

‘Proper fitting and the kind of shoes you’re wearing can also affect how your feet feel at the end of the day.

Loosely-fitted shoes can cause foot strain and tighter shoes can cause even more soreness.’’

The same site says that shoe orthotics are also advised when the soreness is persistent. Orthotics are customized shoe inserts that support the arch of the foot and promote better biomechanics while standing, walking, and running.

There are also numerous foot exercises that can help regulate blood flow.

Applying lotion can also do wonders as smoother skin gives the feet a lighter, fresher feeling.
