National Feet Week

National Feet Week

Did you know that it is National Feet Week this week 13th May to 20th May?

How often do you visit the Podiatrist? I don’t visit at all even though my good friend is one.

I really should, our feet are there to look after us and we should really look after them!

Research is suggesting that many kids aren’t learning how to tie their laces and I do agree with this research. We are asked in nursery/reception to supply children with velcro/slip on for ease. But then this gets to older years, now I admit Jake is 8 and still wears velcro, its easier for him on the mad rush to school on a morning, I sit and think that now he is 8 he really should learn.

I don’t remember at all when I learnt to tie a shoe, but I do remember doing the bunny ears way, and that’s how I learnt.

Gifted Bundles

This fantastic bundle will have my feet summer ready in no time.

I’m loving the Dr Anders foot Intensive Rescue balm, Nourishing Daily Therapy and Conditioning Nail Treatment.

Also the super soft Thought bamboo socks which are the softest feeling socks ever! Apart from my millions of fluffy socks that I own. I do have a thing for fluffy socks!

The Formthotics which I have in my shoes are absolutely amazing. Formthotics are worn by millions around the world to help treat and prevent:-

  • foot and leg problems: aching tired feet, heel pain, pain in the ball of the foot, corns, calluses etc.
  • Sports injuries: Achilles tendon pain, shin splits, knee pain and hip pain.
  • Musculoskeletal problems: Back pain, myalgia, fibrositis, arthritis
  • Diabetes: Prevention of foot ulcers by unloading pressure areas

#LaceRace Challenge

As part of National Feet Week we have been challenged to fasten 2 laces on shoes as part of the #LaceRace. There has been many fantastic attempts and even a completed attempt has been done in just over 3 seconds at Blog On.

Well, I tried! Here is my attempt below with my wobbly handed 8 year old videoing!

If you haven’t heard Forgotten Feet are aiming to provide a free, regular podiatry service for those who need it the most but are least likely to have access to it.

12 Thoughts to “National Feet Week”

    I try to take care of my feet now that I am older. I like to keep foot cream on my beside table, and put it on several times a week just before I go to bed. I then cover my feet with a pair of “used” moisturising socks, to stop the cream getting on the sheets.

    My wife would love some bamboo socks. Love the foot shaped foot scrub.
