Let’s say you had another day that dragged on forever at the office. You come home and can barely muster up the strength to do anything with your family. You’re crabby and irritable. How can you break the cycle of this happening one more day?
The answer is to think about your feet and the insoles in your shoes. Whenever you can’t pinpoint why you’re tired, you will have to think outside the box to find an answer. The bottom line is that if your feet aren’t totally supported during the day, there’s no way you are going to feel totally supported at the end of the day. The solution is truly to support your feet via the use of insoles – and especially if you’re standing most of the day or even for a few hours, it’s time to get some sturdy insoles.
You might think this is all just a marketing plot to get more sales at The Insole Store but it’s not. Think back to when your feet feel good. Your psychological state follows your feet.
Try an experiment. Get a foot massage after work one day and see what happens. If you’re like most people, you’ll have a surge of energy that is quite incredible. You may even feel that you want to go dancing. Or go somewhere special with your family.
Where did all this energy come from? It came from your feet.
But here’s the interesting part. Wearing insoles in your shoes that support your feet is like getting that foot massage after work. All you have to do is select a pair that matches your feet. For example, if you have size 10 shoes, then you get size 10 insoles. If you have flat feet, you get a pair that is designed for flat feet. If you stand a lot at work, you need a pair of insoles for standing.When you consider what types of insoles to purchase, you can purchase them for a specific purpose. Here’s a list of different ways to determine what you need:
Insoles by brand name
Insoles by activity, such as walking, running, golf, hockey and winter sports, cleated sports, casual shoes, court sports, or cycling. Of course, insoles for dress shoes are also a distinct possibility here.
Insoles for a specific type of pain. Many insoles may be recommended by the American Podiatric Medical Association because they reduce pain for different conditions.
Insoles for high heels
Insoles for big and tall men and women
Insoles made from leather or wool
Industrial / work insoles
It’s a lot to think about, but it’s best to know what is available before you get started.
