8 Self-Care Tips to Soothe Sore Feet at Home 

Millions of people experience foot pain when walking. After all, our feet act as shock absorbers for the rest of our body and we constantly put them through the wringer, whether it's on a run, in a pair of heels or standing for long periods.

And when you’re in pain, it’s hard to focus on anything else. Not only is it uncomfortable, but it can also keep you from living your life to the fullest.

Luckily there are a few things you can do. Here are 8 easy tips to help soothe your sore feet.

1. Stretch your muscles 

Stressed muscles can spasm and cause pain. To offset the tightness and help your sore feet, try adding these simple exercises to your daily routine. It is recommended that you repeat each movement a few times over.

5. Ditch those heels

They may look nice, but the pain is just not worth it. If possible, we recommend you only wear them on special occasions or invest in good high-heel orthotics/ inserts.

6. Elevate your feet above heart level  

Taking time out of your busy schedule to rest your feet on something higher than your heart can do wonders for decreasing fatigue and promoting relaxation. Spending just 15-20 minutes, with your feet raised gives your muscles an opportunity to relax.  

7. Release tension with a good foot rub

This simple act of self-care can help soothe aches and pains.

8. Switch to proper shoes that fit

The biggest culprit of sore feet is ill-fitted footwear. Wearing the incorrect size or shoes with no support can take a toll. So your first step is measuring your feet and then buying a pair that fits.
