Home My Blog Everyone should give themselves a foot massage in the morning

Everyone should give themselves a foot massage in the morning

Friday, 25 March 2011 13:28

What a wonderful way to start the day.  Our feet work so hard for us.  I cannot remember the last time I gave my feet some tender loving care.

I have been doing lots of running lately and generally enjoying my physicality.  I love being on the move.  But I have never had a particularly good relationship with my feet.  For a long time I didn't even like my feet.  It took doing yoga in my late 20s for me to finally come to barely amicable terms with them.

Well lately they have been looking the worse for wear and I thought it was time to do something about it.  On Wednesday morning I had just finished my run (have I mentioned lately how much I love running) and had had a shower.  I sat down on the floor and massaged my feet - with Jurlique hand cream no less - and it felt so wonderful that my next thought was 'Everyone should give themselves a foot massage in the morning - it feels so incredible!'.  My feet were really appreciating it and my whole body did a big 'Hhhhhhh'.  The weather was a bit cooler so I put socks on and it was like a mini treatment for my feet.

I am going to try and do it every day.  I've done it for a few days now and my feet are looking happier and you know, I feel real affection for them and feel that they are kind of beautiful in their own quirky way.  I am really quite proud of them for doing all the things I want to do day in and day out, without even the slightest grumble.

My favourite word at the moment is 'kind'.  I try to be kind to everyone I meet.  And I have realised that being kind to your body and yourself is just as much a healing as anything else you can do and it doesn't cost a thing.

Just now I have come from my first bath in months and months and I am feeling that lovely soft calm feeling that you get after a bath.

Another way of being kind to yourself is to make sure you are giving your body lots of positive feedback.  In my late 30s I fell into the trap of criticising my body - particularly my boobs - and they got very sad and it wasn't good for their self-esteem at all.  Now I praise them and they look heaps better and happier.

In my book, Doing It with Love!, I talk about how we limit ourselves in so many ways.  How we kind of resign ourselves to putting on a couple of kilos every few years.  But it doesn't have to be that way.  I feel fitter, healthier and happier now in my 40s.  And I feel like I still haven't hit my peak.

So I hope I have inspired you to give your feet a treat - and while you are at it, remember to do your pelvic floor exercises as well.

Pranksters could squirt water at your bottom whilst you're on the toilet for
the 2. And it is porta potty oahu not" safe". It comes with the
cost of porta potty rentals that are very convenient for construction companies that are constantly moving their workers to remote locations.
As seen in the BBC report below, there's a history
section reflecting on the less than pleasant Korean commodes of the
past.

I agree with you but in the morning usually people do not have time to do a foot massage. People can try other foot care products in the morning. I think the perfect time to get a foot massage would be in the evening after work. What do you think?
