Do you laugh out loud during a pedicure? Good news: It means you probably have good balance! Because ticklish feet mean the 7-thousand nerves down there are functioning well and receiving messages from your brain. And we need that feedback so we can adjust our body to stay upright, whether we’re hiking on an uneven trail, walking on ice, or trying to cross a cobblestone street in stilettos! But as we age, feet get less sensitive, which is one of the reasons senior citizens are more prone to falling. To keep your feet functioning at their best, take 20-minutes a day to walk around barefoot. It stimulates pressure points on the soles of your feet that lead to better balance.
