Here's how to inoculate ourselves against negative ones. Verified by Psychology Today. Our feet and legs, often neglected in the study of body language , transmit a lot of valuable information about what we are sensing, thinking, and feeling. We pay so much attention to the face and other parts of the body, that we forget the importance of these vital appendages. They reflect our true emotions and intentions, in real time, unlike our face and other parts of the body, and they can be instrumental in the detection of deception. Someone walks up to us late at night while we are at the ATM machine and our legs tighten up, and our feet orient towards an escape route, preparing us to flee if necessary.
Foot problems are common in people with diabetes. Managing your blood glucose levels, also called blood sugar, can also help keep your feet healthy. Over time, diabetes may cause nerve damage, also called diabetic neuropathy , that can cause tingling and pain, and can make you lose feeling in your feet. When you lose feeling in your feet, you may not feel a pebble inside your sock or a blister on your foot, which can lead to cuts and sores.
