Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) December 17, 2011
The holiday season brings joy – and tired, aching feet. Many people spend more time on their feet during the holiday shopping season than at most other times of the year. Foot care expert Carol J. Buck, CEO of Xenna Corporation (http://www.xenna.com), says, “It’s not unusual for shopping trips to take much longer than planned, so taking wear and tear on feet into consideration is a significant way to alleviate shopping stress during the holidays.”
Other causes of tired feet at this time of year include having to park far away because of crowds, having to go to multiple stores because the perfect gift was sold out, and standing for extended periods in long checkout lines.
Buck offers the following foot care advice for holiday shoppers:
1. Pace yourself with a break every hour and half by stopping for a coffee or snack and sitting for 10 to 15 minutes to rest your feet and consolidate your bags.
2. Wear warm boots if shopping outside and rubber-soled shoes if shopping indoors to avoid falls on slippery marble or tiles.
3. If you are a senior, plan your route to minimize back-tracking, never shop in high heels (but bring them along if you are dress shopping).
4. Don’t rush through the shopping experience, but rather walk at a leisurely pace and hold on to the railings of steps or escalators.
5. Shopping can be good exercise. Wear a pair of sneakers that enhance your desire to walk.

NonyX can be purchased at Walgreens, Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid (larger stores), Duane Reade, Kinney Drugs, Kerr Drug, HEB, many Medicine Shoppes, ShopKo and Harris Teeter. NonyX Nail Gel is also sold online at http://www.nonyx.com and http://www.drugstore.com.
