One Day Without Shoes Day

foot health, feet, shoes, barefoot

Today is One Day Without Shoes Day! Going barefoot is good for your feet. Each has 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. The soles of your feet have over 20,000 nerve endings. There are more nerve endings in your feet than any comparable size on your body. Eighty percent of your foot is exposed to the floor when you walk barefoot. Slip off your shoes at home, at work or in the yard to feel the soft carpet, cool tile or tingly grass against your bare feet. Just feel that massive amount of information your little feet are sending to your brain. What are you waiting for? Take off your shoes!
