WE WALK ALL OVER this planet of ours often without even realizing it. We run and jump, lift and bend, rest and recover, all without fully acknowledging where we are in the grand scheme of things. And you know what? It’s okay! Earth Day is a great opportunity to remind ourselves how important it is to move together, work together, and collectively keep moving forward to make sure our planet is here and healthy for generations to come. It’s also a great reminder as to how small we truly are, yet how much of an impact our movements can make—large or small. Cleaning up is merely one part of the battle. Creating movement, promoting health/wellness and being aware of our actions that affect the Earth is another. We all know Mother Earth never stops moving. So, why should we?
On the heels of this notion, the month of April is National Foot Health Month and today, as many of you know, just so happens to be Earth Day. We know a thing or two about promoting strong foot health, as our Lasso performance socks were designed to strengthen your feet and ankles, while combating common foot issues like plantar fasciitis and swelling, so we’ve tallied up three suggestions below to help you do your part and move with compassion this Earth Day—and hopefully every other day moving forward! So we challenge you to get outside today, move around and spend some quality time with Mother Earth.
Fill A Bag of Trash
The earth is a precious place and should be treated as such. We should be doing this as often as possible anyways, but on Earth Day, there is no excuse—go pick up some trash! Head to the beach, a park or maybe your favorite trail and fill up a bag of trash or two. It’s simple, it’s rewarding and it’s a sneaky way to get in some great exercise. Whether you’re tracking steps or strive for a good sweat, you’ll be strengthening your feet and ankles with Lasso compression socks all while doing your part in contributing to cleaning up the earth. Talk about a win-win!
Less Technology—More Fresh Air
Simply being outside can be a fair contribution to Earth Day and here at Lasso we’re big fans of being outside. Let’s relieve ourselves of technology and dreary routines for a day, and instead get outside and move. Have some fun with it! Go for a run, go dance or hop on a bike, play some pickleball, do some stretches or exercise and just relish in the beauty of nature. The point is to close your laptop, unplug a bit and leave your phone behind. Lasso performance socks are the perfect component for a day of moving outside. Strengthening your feet and ankles while spending time with Mother Earth is a great way to promote wellness and is another thing we should be doing every day. It’s the same as spending time with friends and loved ones, or trainers and coaches. The earth owes us nothing, but we owe it to ourselves to keep our planet clean and thriving, as much as our bodies! Utilize every moment and every movement to the fullest extent with Lasso compression socks.
Acknowledge Your Impact
Sometimes one of the best things we can do is to simply acknowledge where we stand amongst a certain subject. This Earth Day, we challenge you to strive to make this world a better place in all aspects of life. The more we move and promote wellness, the better everything tends to be—from our own personal health to the optimism of a brighter tomorrow here on Earth. At Lasso, we strive to better ourselves as much as everyone else daily, and we want to be able to provide the tools needed to heal our bodies and our planet alike—whether you’re recovering from a long day or preparing for one, Lasso performance socks provide the support needed to Stay Moving on your respective path. When you Lasso Up, you’ll feel the difference from the moment you take your first step all the way to your last. Use this confidence and be proud to move forward and make a difference. Be proud to defy the norm and move confidently. Acknowledge the impact you have on this earth as well as on others, because when we move together, that’s when we make an honest difference.
Things like the food we eat and general activities we partake in are also major factors in preserving the earth, but either way, we have to start from where we’re at. We also have to do it together. So today, get out there and Move With Compassion. An inch in the right direction is still an inch closer to achieving greatness. Throw on your Lasso performance socks and move with us today. Every day! We’ll see you out there.
