At Feet First Foot Care, we know that our Middlesex County patients are doing their best to follow safety precautions to help prevent the spread of the virus—and there are signs that it’s working. One of those measures is self-isolating, something that can be particularly stressful if you live alone.

Here are some guidelines that can help:

Stay Connected—it’s especially important at this time that you maintain communication with loved ones and friends. Where a Facebook post or quick email may have sufficed in the past, now we need to hear each other’s voices and see faces whenever possible. Take advantage of Zoom, What’s App, facetime and other services that you can get for free and enable you to see and talk to those you are missing.

Change the Incoming Messages—limit the amount of time you spend watching the news. Being informed is one thing, but 24 hours of nonstop images and virus talk is unhealthy. Instead, look for upbeat podcasts, resources from your place of worship, or community social workers for some positive practices to create balance and improve emotional health.

Reach Out to Others in Need—if you know people in a situation similar to yours, give them a call or send a note or email—even if they’re not someone you’re really close to. Shared experiences create bonds. Plus, thinking about others is a good way to help us take some of the focus off our own stress and anxiety.

Get Some Fresh Air—the weather is finally getting warmer and flowers and shrubs are starting to bloom. It’s good to get some sun and take a brisk walk if possible. Exercise is also a mood elevator and will help you stay healthy.

We want our patients to know that we are available if you have foot trouble. Contact our Cromwell office by calling (860) 632-5499.

Did you ever hear of National Celebrate Exchange Day? This March holiday started on the anniversary of the first ever exchange club opened in Detroit, Michigan back in the early 1900s. These clubs were formed by local townsmen involved in business who wanted to ‘exchange’ great ideas, information, and resources to help improve their local communities. Today, there are over 600 exchange clubs throughout the United States.

When it comes to helping others, members of the exchange club really excel at their abilities. Who wouldn’t want to do what they can, be it small or large contributions, to help make their communities better for the benefit of their neighbors, family, and friends alike?

In that same respect, all of us here at Feet First Foot Care Specialists seek to benefit our local communities by providing excellent podiatric care that improves the quality of life for everyone. Every day is National Celebrate Exchange Day with Dr. Adam Mucinskas! By providing high-quality foot care to those in and around Cromwell, Connecticut, we hope to contribute to making the world a better place. What can you do today, or every day, to help celebrate National Celebrate Exchange Day?

  • Recycle more often - whether at home or on the go, every recyclable item can help make a difference. If you can’t find a recycling bin out and about, hold onto it until you find one!
  • Pick up trash - while some folks go the extra mile and organize large group outings to do trash pick-up in public places, you can start by simply picking up trash wherever you notice it.
  • Help a neighbor - offer to help an elderly neighbor or someone who recently injured themselves! Even just bringing their groceries inside or sweeping their steps can make a world of difference.

These three simple ways you can participate in National Celebrate Exchange Day will be a lot easier if you wear comfortable, supportive shoes along the way. Call us today at (860) 632-5499 to schedule your next appointment with Dr. Mucinskas!
