Ideas to Pamper & Appreciate Your Feet!

August 6th is 'Wiggle Your Toes' day, which is a day dedicated to your feet - after all, your feet do a lot for you, so why not give them some pampering and attention?

I've listed many ideas below to help you appreciate your feet; from giving them a pedicure to painting nails and applying Henna.

Set your feet free from the confines of shoes as much as you can and give your toes wiggle-room - the idea may seem silly, but try a few of the things below and I'm sure you'll have a smile on your face all day!

7) Find at least 3 different surfaces outside to go barefoot on, e.g. sand, grass, gravel, soil, tarmac, pebbles, etc. (or make your own with marshmallows, grapes or something else squishy and messy in a bucket!) - and most importantly...wiggle your toes!

8) If you work behind a desk all day, sneakily take off your shoes during the day for a more relaxed day. Or you could wear flip-flops/peep-toe shoes all day to set your toes free!

      I wiggle my toes every day, but I'll do extra on Aug 6th. Also, my husband takes real good care of my feet...massages with lotion and I get to soak them in a Dr. Scholl's jello type substance. Interesting lens.

      Cute lens! As a massage therapist, I see LOTS of toes in a week and I agree, the feet and toes don't get as much love and appreciation that they should!
