Health Notes. — Hints for Foot Comfort

Health Notes.
Hints for Foot Comfort.

Foot comfort is reflected in the face—hurting feet are good wrinkle-makers. If your feet hurt it is practically impossible to feel happy. Therefore, treat your feet well and you will be amply repaid. Here are a few hints:

Wear shoes that fit well and give your toes plenty of room.

Don't wear shoes with extremely pointed toes or extremely high heels.

Never walk on run-down heels.

See that your stockings are slightly longer than your feet when you are standing.

Learn to carry yourself properly. Bad posture is one of the major causes of painful, ugly feet.

You cannot be on a good footing with the world if you are tormented with hardened calluses, painful arches, corns, etc.

Prevention is better than cure.
