How To Do Better Care Of Your Feet

Your feet are your primary means of support when you’re walking, climbing stairs, or running. They also serve as a way to keep your balance while standing and walking. So you want to make sure they stay healthy and happy! Follow these tips for better care of your feet:

The foot is made up of 26 bones, 33 muscles and more than 100 ligaments. That’s a lot for a tiny part of your body to handle. Here are some tips for keeping your feet healthy and happy:

  • Get enough sleep at night. Even if you’re tired from work or running around all day, it’s important to get enough rest so that your body can function properly throughout the day. This can help prevent injury by keeping muscles warm and relaxed as well as improving circulation in the area around your toes (the plantar fascia).
  • Wear comfortable shoes when running or walking around outside; these should be neither too loose nor too tight—they should feel snug but not binding on your feet while also allowing them plenty of room to move freely within them without causing further pain or soreness due to tightness/looseness issues occurring as well! If possible try wearing socks made from cotton material instead since they’ll provide better cushioning against impact forces incurred during physical activity such as jogging sessions outdoors.”

Fit your shoes to the largest foot.

  • If you have a wide foot, look for shoes that are wider.
  • If you have a narrow foot, look for shoes that are narrower.
  • If you have a high instep (the part of your foot that sticks up), look for shoes with a higher instep so they don’t rub against it while walking or running.[2]

You don’t have to throw away a comfortable pair of shoes just because they’re worn out on the outside. Have them re-soled.

Re-soling is a good option for shoes that are still comfortable, but have worn down the outside. It can extend the life of your shoes by years, and also gives you more room to grow into them as they age.

You can re-sole them yourself with a shoe repair kit or take them to a professional at an auto body shop to have it done right.

Change shoes and socks often during the day, if possible. Shoes and socks hold moisture, which can cause problems such as athletes foot and blisters.

One of the most important things you can do to take care of your feet is to change shoes and socks often during the day, if possible. Shoes and socks hold moisture, which can cause problems such as athletes foot and blisters. Wearing wet shoes can lead to athlete’s foot and wearing wet socks can lead to blisters. If you think about it, this makes sense: if you go for a run or walk in cold weather then your feet are exposed directly to the elements—the cold air from outside meets warm blood flowing through them—and this causes friction between your skin cells (you have lots of them) and fabrics such as nylon or cotton that make up our footwear today.

  • Don’t wear high heels every day, if you can avoid it. When you do wear them, don’t wear them all day long. Choose a moderate heel of two inches or less. High heels put more pressure on your toes, which can lead to ingrown toenails and hammer toe.*
  • Wear comfortable shoes that fit well and support your feet as much as possible.*
  • Avoid any kind of shoe with a run-in design (such as those with laces). They’re harder on the joints than slip-ons and go from being uncomfortable to painful if worn too long.*

If you have problems with your feet, do not attempt to trim your own nails or treat any kind of infection. You may worsen a minor problem or develop a serious one that requires attention from a professional.

If you have diabetes and/or poor circulation in the feet, the risk of infection is greater than it would be for someone without this condition. If you notice any sores on the sole of your foot (with no other symptoms), see a doctor right away!

Do not cut your nails too short, or in rounded shapes (instead of straight across). This can lead to ingrown toenails or fungal infections between the toes.

The first thing to do is to keep your nails short. If they’re too long, they can get caught on things like furniture or other people’s shoes and cause an infection in the nail bed.

If you have diabetes and are prone to getting infections around your feet, try wearing socks that are made from material that doesn’t allow air circulation between their toes (for example: cotton). This will help prevent festering wounds from getting worse—and if you’re prone to fungal infections around your feet, then this extra layer may be just what the doctor ordered!
