|Here is something that I didn’t know: some people have more than ten toes! One of the people with extra toes is Oprah Winfrey.|
|Oh, and, even if you’re not going for a half-marathon-type walk, you are still walking a good distance, just in every day type of walking (walking around the house, up and down stairs, walking in the store, at your job, etc.). According to the wonderarch.com website, the average person walks about four miles a day. That translates to 115,000 miles in a lifetime, which means that you are walking around the earth four times (hard to do unless you could actually walk on the oceans).
So, how do you take care of the feet that take care of you?
The best exercise for feet is walking. Take a walk, either outside or in a mall. It’s a good exercise because you can do it by yourself or with friends, making it not only exercise but a social experience. It gives you the chance to explore your community and to make new friends with people and with dogs.
Dancing is also good for your feet and it has the added benefit of being fun.
Feet also benefit from flexibility exercises. Check out this website for idea of exercises for your feet: exercises for healthy feet
And remember: never do any foot exercise that hurts. This should not be painful. If it is, please get a doctor to look at your foot or feet. Your feet deserve the best of care.
