I had the pleasure of meeting Gretchen Rubin in New York last week. She’s delightful, and writes a great blog on happiness.
Her post yesterday really hits home: running shoes are usually more comfortable than dress shoes, and comfortable feet can offer a serious happiness boost.
I hate dress shoes, but I wear them when I must. Last week I had a meeting which called for nice shoes. Apparently, people still dress up on the east coast. I wore brand new dress shoes and four hours later I was limping around Manhattan, the shoe having carved a round hole in the back of my ankle. Disaster.
A week and ten bloodied pairs of socks later, I’m still recovering.
Listen to Gretchen. Wear running shoes. They’re more comfortable.
