In order to be a Sensuous Woman or a Sensuous Man you must be aware of your Body and how it feels. Developing an awareness of how your Body feels and an understanding of what it needs will help you keep it Healthy and Feeling Good… and that will make you more Sensuous and Sexy. A Sensuous Person understands the importance of nurturing the Body and taking care of any needs. Keeping our feet Happy and Healthy is critical to our overall well-being.
And believe it or not, no matter how old you are, you need to start thinking about keeping your feet Happy.
“If your feet are not Happy, you won’t be Happy”.
Almost Famous Quote
Peggy Durham, Sensuous Life Coach
It is difficult or impossible to feel Sensuous if your feet hurt… And 75% of Americans will have foot problems at one time or another. In an average day of walking, we put hundreds of tons of impact on our feet. They need our help.
In each foot, there are 26 Bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles. There is a lot going on in our feet and we need to pay attention to them if we want to stay Sexy, Sensuous and Healthy.
And as we age… things get even worse and it is more critical to figure out what is going on… the sooner the better. We all abuse our feet. High heels or other shoes that we stuff our feet into can do damage. Shoes with no support or stability are just as bad.
A few facts about aging feet.
Foot size increases ½ size every 10 years after 40. (I think that this happens much sooner.)
Tendons and Ligaments lose their elasticity which causes a flattening of the feet.
Increased force over time causes Fat Pads that cushion the bottom of the foot to thin.
And even if you get fatter, the Fat Pads in your feet get thinner.
Foot flattening can mess with your Big toe making it more likely to rub on the top of your shoe.
Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, and Diabetes can cause lots of other foot problems.
Bunions, Calluses, Toe Nail issues, Joint Malfunctions, Heel pain and Knee and Hip problems are a few other issues that you may have to deal with that are related to feet not being happy.
Unstable feet cause Falls.
Foot pain makes it very difficult to feel Sexy and Sensuous.
All of these things can cause you to lose your Youthful Bounce and the Spring in your Step. So what can you do. I believe that there is a lot you can do no matter where you are in Life. Paying attention to how your feet are doing is key and giving them the love and attention they deserve is vital.
Wearing comfortable shoes that have good support as often as possible is the best thing you can do for your feet. You may need to purchase a new pair of shoes that let your toes wiggle and your feet breathe. Next, you will need to determine if you need arch support or cushioning. You may want to start by looking at shoe inserts that are available online or at your local shoe store or pharmacy. There are lots of options for shoe inserts that cushion and support your feet. If none of these inserts work for you… I highly recommend that you see a Podiatrist and have custom shoe inserts made. They are made exactly to take care of the needs of your feet. They will bring back that sexy bounce in your step and give you more energy.
I am always searching for great shoes that make me feel bouncy and energetic.
My favorite Shoes right now are GO Walk 3 for Women .
They also have Go Walk 3 for Men .
These shoes make you feel like you are walking on a cloud. Lots of bounce for the buck. I love to find great shoes like these… Please leave a comment if you know about a wonderful pair of shoes.
And don’t forget Foot Massage as a great way to keep your feet healthy. Share a massage with a friend or do it yourself.
Learn Reflexology…there is a page in my Book about that…
Keeping your Happy and Healthy is worth the time and effort… Make the world a happier place. Please share this post with others…
