Imagine…Life Without Feet!

“Foot for Thought…”

As an author and advocate for foot care. And having learned the hard way with some serious foot pain issues as a competitive gymnast when I was a teenager. I’ve been on the bandwagon to spread the word about the importance of healthy & happy feet.

So last night I was thinking…what life would be if we didn’t have feet? And here’s what I came up with…and how things might be different if for some reason things changed and our feet became obsolete.

1. No more, “Running away from you problems.”

2. No more, “Jumping for Joy!”

3. No “First Step for Man, Giant Leap for Mankind.” (Lunar moon walk)

4. No worries about getting “cold-feet” the night before your wedding!

5. No struggles to“Get your foot in the door.” for a new job or promotion.

6. No more “Barefoot & Pregnant.”

7. No more “Insert foot in Mouth” when you say something ridiculous or inappropriate!

8. No more searching to uncover the mystery… and actually find BIGFOOT!

To help avoid these crazy problems you might encounter if you’re faced with life without feet…Check out my book Fantastic Feet! Exercises To Strengthen the Ankles, Arches, and Toes.

I would love to turn this into a list of The Top 100 challenges if we didn’t have feet! What creative, hilarious, and thought-provoking comments and suggestions do you have for adding to this list?

  1. Ford Saeks

    9. No more “Pedicures”
    10. No more “Foot Pain”
    11. No more quotes like “Only a fool tests the depth of the water with both feet.”
    12 Measurements would go to the metric system

    Come on readers… what do you think?


    This is really funny! It remind me a lot of a book called “What if”. It’s a book actually for fiction writers containing thought provoking ideas… like what if we never slept. I know a lot of pilate advocates are creative and artistic people. It’s a great book to check out for creative inspiration. With that being said:

    13. Shoes wouldn’t exist
    14. I think most types of cardio is out of the picture
    15. no more “leaping before you look”

  3. Aliesa George

    Or “Looking before you Leap!” I like your attitude…

    Here are a few more I’ve come up with…

    16. No More Marching off to war – we might have World PEACE!

    17. No More “Walking” for Graduation.

    18. No… “Stepping Out with My Baby…”

    19. It would be a real challenge to “Climb the Corporate Ladder!”

    Hey this list is off to a great start! Thanks for your creative insight.

    Who else has suggestions so I can get this list to 100 Foot for Thought Facts!

    We would have one less reality show on t.v.

    No more ‘Dancing with the Stars’

    Politicians would no longer ‘run’ for office. Hmmmm. maybe not such a bad thing 🙂

    No more kicking people around anymore. Not a nice attribute anyway!

  5. Susan Royal

    Oh…my husband came up with a couple of good ones.

    No more ‘Athletes Feet’

    No more…”this little piggy went to the market”



  1. And if your hand should say to your foot « Douglas and Main - [...] That would be troubling. Douglas and Main would be troubled by the whole talking hand thing but Aliesa wonders…
