Reasons Why You Should Take Care Of Your Feet

Your foot, quite literally, is the foundation of your body. Like the foundation of a structure needs to be strong, your feet also need 200 percent of your attention.

The ancient technique of acupuncture also says that your food has the maximum number of pressure points. These points can solve a lot of your problems like body pain, headache or even an upset stomach. Don’t believe acupuncture? Then read on, as we tell you why you should take care of your feet:

Back pain

How do you pick up a pair of shoe? If comfort is one of the most important parameters on your list, then you are safe. Wearing a wrong pair of footwear can cause body pain. And a continuous use of such uncomfortable shoes can also lead to bad posture and vertebral pain. When selecting running shoes, it is always best that you avoid buying cheap and substandard brands. There are a variety of brands available in the market today that are custom made for running. They are designed in a way that they balance out the weight of your body evenly on the foot. Wear the shoe twice before buying them and make sure that they are not very tight as that will cause shoe-bite and blisters.

Mirror to your health issues

Your feet can show signs of illness well in advance. Medical conditions such as diabetes, arthritis and a lot of other disorders that are associated with circulatory system and nerves show their initial effects on your feet. You can tell if the person is unwell only by touching his feet. When unwell, your feet turn cold due to poor circulation. So, the next time you get cold feet (literally), visit a doctor and get yourself examined.

Infection prone

Any injury or cut on your feet needs to be attended to immediately. As your feet are directly in contact with dust, there are higher chances of contamination. Therefore, you must be extra careful with the cuts and bruises on your feet. The colour of your toe nail can also tell you about your upset stomach, weak liver and lot other stomach related issues. Make sure you maintain a high level of hygiene to stay away from fungal infection. Most men avoid this, but a regular foot care routine is extremely necessary to stay away from infections.

Take proper care and make sure that you always put the right foot forward. A little extra attention that you pay towards your feet can save you from chronic disorders helping you take immediate action. Always buy shoes that comfort your feet and don't just run after a snazzy looking pair, because there is always a hidden baggage with beautiful things!

    All-new 2015 Subaru Outback reestablishes higher ground

    Much of Subaru’s modern day success in America can be attributed to one car: the Outback. Born in 1994 as a response to the growing popularity of SUVs, the Outback established a winning formula of combining a high-riding suspension, butch body cladding and big round fog lights to its comfortable, no-nonsense Legacy wagon. It is the kind of unique product that only a quirky company like Subaru could build, and was one that kept Subaru from slipping into ubiquity even as traditional SUVs and crossovers have taken over the world.

It's been more than 100 years since the first vehicles began to trundle around Manhattan, but the last remaining vestiges of horse-powered transport in the city could be nigh — if the backers of a massive electric wagon get their way.
