Daily Health tip…happy feet

Hello everyone. It’s Sunday…just in case you hadn’t quite figured it out :D. For some of us, it will be a quick dash into church and back. For others, it will be a long day of services, meetings and perhaps standing to usher people into seats etc. Whatever category you fit into, you need the right equipment for your feet. Yes, you guessed it…the right shoes so that the day doesn’t end up with your feet feeling tortured.

Let’s give you some tips for choosing the right equipment for your feet when next you go shoe shopping:

Try shopping in the afternoon as this allows for the natural expansion of your feet as the day progresses and especially in hot weather;

Try both shoes on and don’t assume because it fits one, it will fit the other. In fact, if the disparity is very significant, you may have to buy different sizes for both feet (ahah!);

Stand and walk around in them to ensure that you are comfortable and check the tags that specify what type of material was used to make the shoe to ensure that you don’t react to them (I bought a pair of shoes once and every time I took them off, I spent the next 30 minutes or so scratching away. I developed horrible dark sores on the top of my feet);

Make sure there’s about a quarter to half an inch between your biggest toe and the end of the shoe.

You know that story aboit how the shoe will expand later? Trust me, it doesn’t work…even 1/10 of the time!

So, next time you go shoe shopping, you know what to do. Shop for style….and comfort

    Pls how can someone cure mouth odour


    • Hello Emmanuela, first things first…rule of twos. Brush your teeth at least two times a day using a fluoride tooth paste, spend at least two minutes brushing your teeth (divide your mouth mentally into four and spend 30 seconds on each section) and see your dentist at least twice a year. Be sure to floss everyday, use a mouth wash and steer clear of strong smelling foods like garlic when trying to make a good impression πŸ™‚ It may not be a bad idea to brush after every meal too.
