When you think about what you’re thankful for, you might list things like health, family, friends, a job, your dog, etc., etc. But have you thought about focusing your gratitude on your feet?

Sure, that sounds silly or weird, but let’s STEP BACK, and think about it.

Why would you thank your feet?

  • They take you where you want to go.
  • They stabilize you when you stand, ride a skateboard, or do yoga.
  • They help you reach those things that are high up.
  • They work hard to keep you active and healthy.
  • They allow you to operate certain machines like cars or sewing machines.
  • They give you tools of defense (if you learn how to kick properly!).

You use your feet every single day without a single thought. They just work and go and do. So in appreciation of your hard-working feet, why not try some of these ways to THANK your feet during this season of giving thanks:

  • T-Treat your feet to a safe and clean pedicure!
  • H-Help yourself to nutritious foods with calcium, vitamin D, and antioxidants!
  • A-Apply moisturizer when your feet get dry, especially as it gets colder.
  • N-Note any foot pain or changes and make an appointment to get treatment.
  • K-Kick back and relax – a partner massage or a foot massager machine.
  • S-Soak your feet in a warm bath - with Epsom salt and essential oils.

Additionally, you might want to replace some of your older shoes with newer, more comfortable shoes with supportive features. If you must wear high heels or tight shoes, bring comfortable shoes to change into as soon as you can. While you’re at it, get yourself some standing mats for in front of the sinks, stoves, and desks of your home. Wherever you stand for long periods of time, that’s where your feet will be happy to have some cushioning.

As you do your holiday shopping, travel, and spend time with loved ones, don’t forget to give your feet some TLC. The best thing you can do is to consult with our board-certified podiatrist, Dr. Brad Toll at Crofton Podiatry if you notice anything wrong with your feet. Make an appointment by calling (410) 721-4505. Dr. Toll and his foot care team are dedicated to your foot health. Visit our Crofton, MD office, which also serves Gambrills, Odenton, and Bowie, MD.
