Cold feet aren’t happy feet! Leave it to the penguins

I’m going to assume the answer is no. For most of us, we would leave that to the penguins. If my feet are cold; it generally means my whole body is cold. So if you can’t always wear fur-lined boots, what else can you do to keep those tootsies toasty this winter? But take off your shoes or boots when you are at work (that is if you work at an office or are able to take a break inside somewhere). Let your boots and feet air out and give them a little rub to get the circulation going. Some people keep a bat under their desk (not for what you may be thinking) and use it to rub their arch along the baseball bat which instantly warms up your toes.

Buying good quality boots or shoes will save you time, money, and trips to the doctor in the long run. Stay away from shoes made of plastic (pleather) as they don’t absorb the sweat from your feet properly. Higher-end shoes will have breathable material which will allow your foot perspiration to escape and will save your family members from the stench of sweaty feet!Wool socks are so much better than cotton socks in the colder months.

Cotton socks are thin and absorb and maintain moisture. Wool socks dry a lot quicker, even when they are still on your feet. And if you are going to wear your gum boots, do yourself a favour and put some socks on as well.Continuous cold sensations to the feet can come from disorders of the nervous system, poor circulation, and decreased metabolism from a low thyroid condition. Some of the more common diseases associated with cold feet are diabetes and neuropathy.
