For a Good Night’s Sleep … Be Good to Your Feet (CV)

To get a good harvest of dreams … you must first get some sleep.

Pampering your feet can help.



Try giving your feet, ankles, and calves a gentle massage just before bed.

IMG_2479Use moisturizer or massage oil to really soothe your soles (and your soul).

Then put on a pair of comfy socks, and cuddle up for a good night of zzz’s

And if you’re lucky, you’ll have a good night of dreams, too!


Why does a foot massage help you sleep better?

Grounding your energy in your feet at night helps to ensure that you’ll drop your attention downward and away from your mind, where busy, troublesome, or nagging thoughts can keep you awake.

    I’ll be on my feet until the wee hours on Friday and this looks like something I should definately try before I hop into bed at the end of that long day. Thanks!

  3. look very pleasant with the massage, but why the socks. I feel it very uncomfortable to sleep with socks on 🙂

    • Hi Dorte,
      Not everyone likes to sleep with socks on, but some do. I compromise, I start with them on then kick them off in the middle of the night 🙂 You certainly shouldn’t wear the socks if it doesn’t feel soothing and cozy for you. The massage alone is very beneficial, as is anything you can do to slow down your thoughts and move your consciousness down toward your feet. For example, you can breathe deeply, imagining your breath reaching all the way to your toes!
      Wishing you sweet dreams!

  4. how very interesting! will have to try it!

    • Hi Elsa,
      No socks, no problem 🙂 There are lots of ways to pamper our hard-working feet. Please see my comment to Dorte (above) for more ideas.
      Wishing you sweet dreams!
