This summer, prevent foot injury by saving flip-flops for the beach.
Flip-flops may be easy and breezy during the summer, but the lack of support can mess with our natural stride and cause long-term foot issues like plantar faciitis. Sport the flimsy footwear at the pool, beach, or for quick errands but slip into more supportive shoes for longer excursions.
This week, we recommended running intervals, boosting self-confidence with affirmative statements, using a park bench to do push-ups, making a patriotic smoothie for the 4th of July, and wearing flip-flops for short walks only. How many healthy choices were you able to make this week?
