Holiday Gift Guide #3
Take care of your feet! These massage balls saved mine and keep me hiking. (5 part series on Plantar Fasciitis on this blog)
I keep at least one ball in my car ALL the time – it lives under the passenger seat. After a hike (IF I’m a passenger of course), I can soothe/fix my feet by just using the relaxed weight of my leg and gently holding or slowly rolling the bottom of my feet. It’s SO healing. I also use in the morning to relieve the plantar flexion that occurs in bed and tightens my feet. If you get all 4, keep 2 and gift 2 buddies 🙂
Another tip for keep feet in neutral at night – I put a pillow at the foot of the bed to make a little “tent” space so the blanket does not weigh down on my feet all night long.
If you have not discovered Amazon Prime – it’s AMAZING. The free shipping pays for the fee pretty fast and I love the convenience and time-saving of finding almost anything and getting it fast. It’s truly a gift (like Bay Nature Magazine) that gives all year long.
In case you have someone who has trouble getting out of your car (aging parents?), here’s a handy tool – I keep one in my car.
