Perhaps you’ve returned back to the office full time or a hybrid system, or you’re still taking Zoom meetings from the coziness of your own bed (with the camera off, of course). Comfort is still at the top of many people’s lists as they navigate their workdays. Society’s style game has become increasingly more casual, which is quite the change from previous years. People are opting for comfort as opposed to pencil skirts and heels. The time to care for your body is now, and we have the inside scoop as to how you can be more comfortable throughout the day.
1. Start from the ground up.
Consider this: You wear your shoes for at least 10 hours a day, and often more. Think about how much time your feet are wrapped up inside of these foot restraints, and often, the shoes are quite bad for your entire body. You may think that shoes only affect your feet, but in truth, wearing a poor pair of shoes can wreak havoc across your entire body, especially if you’re wearing high heels. When changing your wardrobe to ensure optimal comfort, start with some arch support insoles. Whether you have a high arch or flat feet, adding a shoe insert can make a significant difference in your overall comfort.
On top of incorporating arch support, check out this concept called grounding. This is where you connect with the Earth by not wearing any shoes at all! Allowing yourself to step into a more natural state makes you more connected to the energy of the Earth and gives way for your feet to move freely. If you find that your feet have changed shape, a great way to return to your proper state is to snag a pair of toe separators to help your feet feel happy again.
2. Get intimate.
Long have women had to endure the pain of the demands of wearing uncomfortable underwear all throughout the day. Annoying underwear can be a real pain, so say goodbye to thongs that ride up and introduce womens boxers to your underwear drawer. No, these aren’t the kind of boxers you’d steal from your boyfriend, though those can be nice, too. These are boxers that can be worn underneath clothes without a trace, and some styles can be worn with a matching sports bra to hit the gym in. They’re lightweight, breathable, and a lot more affordable than those luxury lace panties you’ve been grimacing in all day. Your physical health is of the utmost importance here.
3. How’s the air quality?
What’s the one thing we do more than anything else for literally our entire lives? Breathe. Humans breathe in and out 22,000 times in a day. Yet, we often neglect the air quality around us. This is especially important if you live in a city or near a busy road. Choosing a high-quality air purifier can make an enormous difference in your quality of living. These little machines can do it all from mitigating smog to ridding the home of allergens and toxins. If you’ve noticed your nose has been giving you some trouble, this may be a great option for you. On the other hand, if you live in a particularly dry climate, a humidifier will greatly increase the amount of moisture in your home, allowing for better breathing and better skin! A win-win!
You spend your entire life in your body. Allowing it to be comfortable and happy should be at the top of every to-do list for every person. When your body is happy, you’re happy, and your quality of life skyrockets.
