One thing I find all year round with doing markets is having tired feet at the end of the day.
I’ve learnt to wear comfortable shoes (I’ve a great pair of Hush Puppy sandles for summer this year!) that are kinder to my feet. I’ve also learnt that I was buying shoes that were too small. So since I’ve been wearing shoes that fit my feet better life’s improved.
A treat I give myself after market when I can is a foot massage (Kirribilli markets and Bondi Beach Markets) – you can say whether you like a firm or soft massage.
But what I’ve learnt the most is the more I look after myself the better my body holds up to the physical work of carrying and setting up market stalls. But isn’t that true for all of life’s living – the more you look after yourself with diet, exercise and clothes the better life is?
