The feet are the most underrated body parts of our body that need special care and treatment, just for the sake of the fact that they are the reason for our mobility. I will list down some easy tricks to relax your tired feet.
- The most common reason of tired feet is continuous walking or long durations of sitting down at your desk. Both these make the blood run downwards making your feet tired and heavy. If you are too tired to use the below-mentioned techniques you can still relax your feet by a simple and easy method. Lie down in bed in such a way that your feet are raised above your head level by half a feet. You can use spare pillow to make this arrangement. You will get immediate relief and will fall asleep easily.
- At the end of a long and tiring day, it is the feet that need the maximum pampering. You can do so by filling a tub of hot but tolerable water. Add a few rose petals, a few drops of your favourite essential oil and some rock salt. Grab a book and soak your feet in this concoction for 20-30 minutes. Wipe our feet clean and retire to bed to get a relaxing sleep.
- If you find your feet tired and dirty after travelling or a work out, then the best combination is relaxation with cleansing. Put some warm water in a tub sufficient to dip feet up to ankles. Add a spoonful of shampoo, a spoonful of coconut oil and some rock salt. Mix well till you get the frothy mixtures. Keep your feet in this solution for 15-20 minutes. Gently rub your feet with a brush and remove the dead skin with a feet scrub. Wash feet with warm and clean water. After drying your feet with a clean towel massage in a foot moisturiser to get the clean and relaxed feet.
- For those that live in a house and not a block of flats, there is another way of relaxing your feet. Take out some time to walk barefoot on the dewy grass early morning. You will have the easiest, economical and freshest way to relax your tired feet. This technique has the dual benefit of improving your eyesight as well.
