Have you ever sat back and appreciated how wonderful your feet are?
Marie Kondo talks about thanking your feet/socks for the work they’ve done throughout the day as we stuff them into ill fitting shoes with small toe caps or high heels “Your feet bear your weight and help you live your life”. Our feet literally carry the weight of our world day in and day out but not many people think about how incredibly important these limbs are.
Your feet contain ¼ of the bones in your body, comprising of 66 joints, 200 muscles, tendons and ligaments and a whopping 20,000 nerve endings! The function of your feet directly influences your balance, your coordination, the way you walk and also your posture. 90% of babies are born with perfect feet but as we grow older our feet start to change – they can become flat, our toes can crowd, we can develop bunions and our ankles become weak – so if 90% of us are born with perfect feet why does this happen?
