Day 46: Don't Neglect Your Feet!

It's easy to take your feet for granted until something goes wrong. There are about nineteen basic muscles in the feet, of which eighteen are attached to the toes. When you wear shoes most of the day, your feet can't move freely. When that happens, they can become weak and vulnerable. Like the rest of your body, your feet need exercise to stay in shape. So, take your shoes off and get started with these simple exercises!

Day 16: Ankle stretches

This exercise brings blood flow to your feet and creates more mobility in the feet and ankles so your feet and ankles will support you the way you depend on them during your daily life.

Day 9: Toe-ing the line

The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society, the organization dedicated to providing education, research, and training of orthopaedic surgeons and other health care providers, suggests that it's important to keep our little piggies in good shape.
