Happy Feet, Healthy Mind. Are You Suffering from Sore Feet?
Posted on October 31 2023
Finding the right pair of shoes is powerful – it can make us feel confident, sexy and stylish. If you suffer from sore feet it is time to rethink your shoes.
We often choose fashion over comfort, therefore women are four times more likely than men to experience foot problems.
More than a quarter of our bones are found in our feet, so they definitely provide our bodies with a solid foundation. Studies have found that ill-fitting shoes can affect your entire body, by causing joint pain, back pain, impaired balance and increasing your risk of falling.
High heels have been linked to osteoarthritis, joint degeneration and tendonitis. However, regularly wearing unsupportive flat shoes can cause fallen arches. Worn-out shoes can lead to muscle strain.
Wearing the wrong pair of shoes also leads to bad posture, which can affect us mentally as much as it does physically.
According to Ohio State University psychology professor Richard Petty, sitting or standing up straight is not just good for your posture, it increases your self-confidence too. In a 2009 study, he found that people who slouched were more likely to doubt themselves than those who sat upright. He concluded that good posture influences your mindset in a positive way and makes you more likely to trust your decisions.
In the workplace, self-confidence and a positive mindset can lead to increased productivity. A study by the National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) found that positive thinking makes us more open to trusting others. Smiling can also make us appear more trustworthy. This increases our ability to cooperate and thrive in a collaborative team environment.
The same study also found that positivity can make us more successful, as this mindset means we are more likely to effectively and efficiently solve problems. The NCBI established that those who are optimistic are more likely to see challenges as opportunities and take advantage of them.
