Water Therapy.

Who doesn't love a good foot soak? There is nothing like putting those little piggies in some warm water while feeling relief from all the stress we put on our dependable feet. From wearing 3" (or higher) heels, to exercising, squeezing them in a pair of straight, square toed boots, or wearing flats that have absolutely no support at all, we really put a number on our feet. What's even more interesting is that so many nerve endings, to other parts of our body, are connected to our feet which makes it all the more important to take care of them. I myself am so bad at taking the time to do so but when I do, I always ask myself why I don't soak my feet more through out the week? Think how simple it is too, to just take 20 minutes (while your watching your reality show) and put your feet in some water while you're doing so. Water therapy is proven to be a method in healing stressed areas and as much as we depend on our feet it's not a bad idea to start there. I can almost guarantee that you'll be going to bed more relaxed from quick soak.

**An added plus is that it also makes the process of grooming our feet all the more easy, as the water will soften everything and make it that much easier to get rid of...nail polish, cuticles, filing etc.

FYI: You don't have to have an actual foot bath to do this. Get a big bowl or pot ( of course one large enough to fit your feet comfortably in) fill it with some water and baking soda (the baking soda will act as an exfoliant) and lay those babies in the water. The water does not have to be hot either. Cool water is just as therapeutic. One more thing....wash that bowl or pot after use!

Might I recommend this? If you are wanting some ultra soft feet, get you some of the Aveda Foot Relief....LOVE.

Hope your Monday morning has started off well!!!
