Updated on January 27, 2015

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!

9) Make your feet the stars of the show by including them in artistic, scenic or just plain fun photos!

10) Cast your footprint in plaster - click here for a how-to.

12) Make your own foot book.

      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!

      I like the picture of the feet in the sand. I'm curious to know if I can use it on my website. Thanks.
