THE “HAPPY FEET” CHALLENGE!
This week we’re going to show our feet some love … and chances are, they’ll pay you back by helping you feel better all the way from the tips of your toes to the top of your head!
All you have to do is roll a tennis ball (or lacrosse ball if you have one) under each foot for 2 minutes.It’s like giving yourself a mini-massage, with benefits that radiate throughout your entire body.
Our feet do a LOT of work for us every single day, and often they don’t get the care they need. Over time, this can cause many issues, from back pain to tight hamstrings and even plantar fasciitis.
By devoting just a couple minutes each day to your feet, you’ll be surprised at the difference it can make in stiffness and even pain.
Here’s all you have to do:
⦁ Sit in a chair (with good posture!)… and place a tennis ball under your foot. Apply a little pressure- enough to where you can definitely feel it- but aren’t experiencing any pain.
⦁ Slowly roll from side to side so that the ball crosses the arch of your foot. Spend about 30-60 seconds or so on this back-and-forth movement.
⦁ If you notice tightness in a particular area, take a few moments on that spot and try to relax. Breathe into it to let the ball work its magic on easing the tension. If you feel actual pain, back off and concentrate on other areas of your foot.
⦁ Next, roll the ball along the length of your foot from your heel to the toe, before repeating on the other foot.
Within just MINUTES… you’ll notice a change in how your feet feel as you walk! You might even notice a marked decrease in tightness in your hips and the back of your thighs
