Self-Care Challenge (Day 195): Caring for My Feet

No matter how you feel about feet, they bear the full brunt of our busy lives. They mobilize us and enable us to complete the difficult tasks that are required to achieve our goals.

O'Keeffe'sI have no idea how podiatrists do it, but thankfully there are specialists to help us take proper care of our feet. While I haven’t yet had to seek medical treatment for any specific problems, I seem to always battle dryness in the summer. (And wearing flip flops probably doesn’t help.)

At any rate, as a diabetes educator I subscribe to a number of diabetes-related publications, and recently, while leafing through an issue of Diabetes Forecast, I ran across an ad for O’keeffe’s for Healthy Feet, a foot cream designed specifically to soothe dry heals.

Within five minutes I was placing my order on Amazon. It seemed like a suitable self-care activity to me. A nightly application produced noticeable results, and in just a couple of days my heels are soft and much happier in general.

Proper foot care is important for all of us–not just those who are managing chronic medical conditions.
