Save My Feet Campaign

In Wellness by Alnoor Ladhani, Chiropodist

Save My Feet CampaignWe have all supported a cause because something about the campaign stirred us to give of our time and/or money. It is time to champion your own health cause. Let’s call it the Save My Feet Campaign!

Michelangelo called the foot, “a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art”, but it seems the design was not built to last, at least not on high heels, asphalt and concrete that is the norm of today. Millions of abused, calloused, deformed feet are walking through life in pain and discomfort.

Pain is a signal that something is wrong and chiropody, defined as “the assessment, treatment, and prevention of disorders, diseases and dysfunctions of the foot”, can help with your foot troubles.

Rather than telling yourself “I don’t have time,” find a way to make the time, and set a short list of reasonable goals to promote your health and well-being.  You can be make time to prioritize wellness by:

  • Exercise. If you make time to exercise consistently, it can help you cope with stress, increase your energy, and improve your mood. You can do this at home to a fitness video or find a gym.
  • Eating a balanced diet. This requires some advance planning, as eating on the go is often a source of a poor diet. One way to achieve this is to plan out your own meals.
  • Taking breaks. Remember your hobbies and take breaks, however brief, to maintain them, whether it’s making a phone call to a friend, reading a book, playing a sport, or walking on the beach.
  • Reaching out for the help that you need. Help is available through education both online and in person. Visiting your Chiropodist for regular check-ups. Book an assessment today to understand and implement your Save My Feet Campaign.

Join our movement and make an impact on your own life by prioritizing your wellness. Start at the foundation – your feet – and you will be glad you did.
