Remember Dr. Seuss? Love that cute book One Foot Two Foot filled with tongue twisters and fun rhymes to teach us to pay attention to each word we’re reading. If you skip or change even one word the rhyme doesn’t make sense anymore. I just read this book again recently with my little one and it got me thinking about how much attention do we give to our feet. Yes, I’m weird like that. One thought leads to another and another and pretty soon I am forced to stop thinking and just log the whole sequence away for future use – Like now! 🙂
I mean, think about it! Our feet hold us up all day! They carry us wherever we want to go and work hard stuffed inside of shoes or worse high heels! Miraculous things these feet are! Something so small to balance the whole of your body on for hours all day! You’ve probably heard the expression “Feet don’t fail me now!” Well…for most us, they don’t fail. They’re faithful to just about the end. But, I ask you, how good are we to our faithful lil’ ol’ feet though? I can tell you that I, hardly ever take time for my feet aside from the necessary wash in the shower.
Well, I say to you that we should all take better care of our feet, they are our foundation and are very important. They are a critical aspect of your overall health & well-being. A good foot massage can make your whole body feel better, relaxed and more refreshed.
